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 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. 

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.

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.
