I am contemplating making the jump from climbing the corporate ladder (most recently a director of sales and customer operations) to owning and operating a niche franchise. Any franchise owners here who can provide advice for choosing a franchise, planning for the first year, and hiring stellar staff? Any and all advice is welcome!

I have been in my current position for 5 yrs with minimal pay increases despite consistent praise from management for being one of the strongest in our department. I hold specialty certifications, staff in ICU and ED, am part of several hospital committees, and regularly perform formulary reviews/MUEs/guideline updates. I recently found out that a new hire with no experience was brought in at a higher hourly rate than myself and several other female staff. Suggestions on steps to take with mgmt?
