But what started as a hobby has turned into something much bigger, the Franci Neely Foundation.

In this interview, she talks about her passion for entrepreneurship.

What Inspired You to Start Franci Neely?

One of the best things about entrepreneurship is creating your vision and leading a team to bring your ideas to fruition.

Being able to come up with an idea and execute it on a specific level are two different things, and having a team of people who understand the difference can be invaluable.

After all, the people who work for you are the customers you’re trying to help.

So you need to make sure they have good customer service and can execute your vision.

Everyone on your team should understand marketing and be able to sell and deliver on promises.

Why Did You Decide to Become an Attorney?

Depending on your goals and skill set, you can take a few different paths as an entrepreneur.

Some people find it beneficial to be an attorney to help with advice and representation.

In contrast, others choose to use their knowledge as an advantage and make themselves valuable by helping out the communities they represent.

Regardless of what path you choose, you’ll want to make sure you have a business plan, financials, and strategies to grow your organization.

You’ll also want to make sure you’re legally compliant and can withstand any scrutiny your venture may come under.

How Did You Know You Wanted to Be An Entrepreneur?

There are a few ways you can tell if you want to be an entrepreneur or not.

The first is if you see this question-and-answer section scratching an itch you didn’t know you had.

It might be that you’re simply interested in learning more about the world of entrepreneurship and want to see what happens next.

Or you might want to look at your interests to determine if entrepreneurship is something you want to focus on. If you’ve always wanted to start your own business but never knew where to begin, we can help.


At the Franci Neely Foundation, we provide free consultation throughout the entire process of starting a nonprofit organization.

From finding a location and securing funding, we’ll help you get your ideas across to the public and help you get started on the right foot.
