No is never fun to hear especially when it is not your decision, but the franchisor’s decision. However, sometimes “No” really is the best answer. First, why would a franchisor say no to you?

Hello Friends!! While 2020 was a challenging year in many ways, it was also one of the biggest growth years of my life both personally and professionally.

Whether it is the pandemic making your life feel uncertain, or an unexpected job loss, uncertainty never feels good.

With so much time on our hands and so many lifestyle changes due to sheltering in place this year, we have had the opportunity to clean out closets, get to those projects we kept putting off, and dream about our futures.

While it is true that we miss so many things about our “normal” life, there are some benefits to the year.
Anyone else feeling a little grumpy on the inside? 2020 is definitely one for the history books, and right about now, I think we are all wishing this year was history. Now as if to add insult to injury, the election is heating up, and we have that to consider too. How do we survive and even thrive when there is so much fear, uncertainty and negativity all around us?
