Faizun Kamal

Faizun Kamal is a nationally renowned public speaker, best selling author and sought-after career strategist. As CEO of The Franchise Pros, Faizun coaches people nationwide on making the transition from employee to entrepreneur. Her unique style of inspirational coaching coupled with swift doses of tough love encourages clients to embrace chaos, fear, insecurity and uncertainty as doorways of opportunity. She has helped countless individuals find their “perfect fit” franchise based on an assessment of their personal, lifestyle and income goals. She guides clients to proactively move beyond career burnout to build a sustainable career that they love!

Faizun’s drive to create significant life changes through entrepreneurship stems from her own personal experience as a corporate refugee. As an executive in the high-stakes, high-stress world of corporate America, she found herself living an increasingly unhealthy, unbalanced life with little time for what she really loved to do, with loved ones. In 2015, after almost a decade in corporate America, she got her break by getting laid off. Instead of immediately jumping back, Faizun began a deeply introspective journey to intentionally redesign her career, and her life. 

As a former Fortune 15 Executive with 19+ years of experience in entrepreneurial, corporate, multinational and nonprofit settings on three continents, Faizun tackles the topics of taking responsible risks to create career pivots, the art of finding the “perfect fit” business, and strategically making the leap from executive to entrepreneur.

Faizun received her BA in Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a Master’s in Business Administration from the Johns Hopkins University. She is also a graduate of Stanford University’s acclaimed Social Entrepreneurship Program. Designated by designer Tory Burch as “a woman to watch”, Kamal has been featured extensively by the Tory Burch Foundation, Forbes, Franchise Dictionary Magazine, Mount Holyoke College Alumnae Quarterly, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School ONE Magazine, Ampleen, Empower Lounge, Social Fashion and Huffington Post Live, among others. She is a frequent guest on various nationally syndicated radio shows and podcasts speaking on the topic of entrepreneurship.

Conversant in multiple languages, Kamal has been described as the “consummate connector”.  Coming from an unusual mix of work background (The Franchise Pros, World Bank, Johns Hopkins University and Verizon) and life experiences (growing up in Asia and Africa), she is able to see patterns in seemingly unconnected things and forge connections in the most unlikely places. 

An accomplished speaker, Kamal brings her unique brand of wisdom, wit and entrepreneurial chutzpah to colleges, universities and leading business and entrepreneurial conferences.  Kamal enjoys mentoring and inspiring people to use their unique skills to make a difference in the world.
