Years In Franchising

What do you love most about FRANCHISING?

I grew up in a home where both of my parents worked full-time jobs and my dad kept a night job to keep up with the bills. I never thought someday I could become an entrepreneur myself. I assumed my life would be like my parents working long hours my entire adult life trying to keep up with the bills. Lucky for me right out of college I was very fortunate to work for a very entrepreneurial franchisee at GNC. He taught me the benefits of business ownership specifically through a franchise model within a system of demonstrated success. I immediately fell in love with it and became an Anytime Fitness franchisee at 25. I love what franchising provided for my life and I want to give as many people as possible the same opportunity that I received.
