Use a Tax Refund to Invest in a Business Venture

American Money Tax Refund

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (April 18, 2016) – There are hundreds of ways to spend a tax refund, and investing it can be the most lucrative. One way to have fun and make a smart investment is to invest in one’s future with a home-based travel franchise such as CruiseOne / Dream Vacations. The average tax refund in 2016 totals nearly $3,000, which is approximately the amount it takes to become a home-based travel business owner. This business opportunity is ideal for those who have a passion for travel and have always dreamed about owning their own business.

“A tax refund doesn’t have to be a once-a-year influx of cash, when re-invested it can provide residual primary or supplemental income for years,” said Tim Courtney, vice president of franchise development for CruiseOne / Dream Vacations. “From baby boomers seeking an encore career they can pass down to their family members to entrepreneurial millennials with wanderlust who crave flexibility, owning a CruiseOne / Dream Vacations franchise is a dream business opportunity for all.”

CruiseOne / Dream Vacations makes it possible for people from all industry backgrounds and varying degrees of experiences to operate a successful franchise from anywhere in the world, as long as there is an Internet connection.  Franchise owners have access to marketing and lead generation programs; online and in-person continuing education and engagement opportunities; a support services team dedicated to resolving all issues; exclusive access to elite product and service offerings; and cutting-edge technology that includes customized desktop and mobile websites, a live booking engine, professional group registration websites and more.

“The opportunities are truly endless for one to maximize their potential as a franchise owner with CruiseOne / Dream Vacations,” added Courtney. “Not only do we place a high value on engagement so our franchisees never feel like they are in business by themselves, but we also have an impressive 10:1 franchisee to support staff ratio to feed their success and provide a better all-around experience.”

CruiseOne / Dream Vacations is a low-cost travel franchise opportunity with the initial fee being less than $10,000, and financing available to qualified applicants.
