I’ve been there. You’re on this page because I was you.
After my first business, I spent 10 years as a software/technology executive. I missed controlling my well-being.
So I got back into it…
I’ve worked through the scary first steps of launching.
I’ve learned that what could go wrong…does. I’ve even slept under my desk. And it’s no big deal. I still would do it all again.
I’ve been involved with franchising and licensing since 1995 when I launched my first business as a licensee of an established newspaper. It eventually became Colorado 2nd largest weekly newspaper. I grew it to be larger than my licensor before selling it to investors in 2005. I then worked as a VP in marketing and sales for some of the hottest start-ups in Denver including Local Matters and Clarity Digital’s Examiner before diving back into investing in a group fitness franchise again in 2014. I am currently looking for my 2nd location. I truly enjoy running my gym and working with my staff to get bigger, more profitable, more efficient each month.
Owning my own enterprise and working to grow it has been my calling. In the last 3 years, I’ve consulted many new franchisees and new businesses. Working with small and medium-sized business has been my true passion since I first started in 1995. I believe in entrepreneurship and take great pride in helping others to do the same.
