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 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.

Tell us about your family...

My wife Mandy is the glue that holds our family together. We have 4 smart and active boys Brandon, Boston, Cameron, and Caleb, plus our dog Maggie. They are my "Why". I have 4 goals in life that all point back to them.

  1. Be a loving Husband
  2. Be an example as a Father
  3. Make a Mark
  4. Be Dangerous for Good



I enjoy coaching my kids in their sports, traveling, reading (listening) to books, working out, trying new restaurants with my wife, connecting with friends, Husker football, Creighton basketball, and thinking about Franchise FastLane!
