Helane Wilbourne

Helane Wilbourne, Business Coach with The Entrepreneur’s Source, North America's leading business ownership and franchise coaching organization, works with seekers interested in exploring franchise business ownership, career transition, business investment or a blended career.  For over 10 years, Helane has enjoyed the opportunity to work with hundreds of individuals who desire to change and appreciate coaching as a means of evaluating potential next steps.  As a coach, guiding a client through the journey of discovery is very rewarding.   

Helane is a seasoned Human Resources Consultant with expertise in career transition and executive coaching.  Her approach is client centered and education based.  As well, she exercises the art of asking the right questions, objective observation and listening to support a client’s self-discovery, allowing them to come to their own conclusions about their future. If business ownership is the ultimate solution, “one of the things we help our clients realize is that you don't have to be in love with the business in order to capitalize on it. It is your vehicle to success.”  Helane has been a featured speaker for the International Franchise Association and the America’s Small Business Development Centers.

Prior to joining The Entrepreneur’s Source, Helane worked in a variety of business sectors including retail, operations, manufacturing and professional services.
