Working at the same job for 20 years can leave you yearning for a new challenge. Maybe you want to utilize your leadership skills more than your current job permits or finally get to run the show before retirement. Whatever the reason behind your career change goal, you have the power to change direction and love your job!
If you’ve thought about becoming your own boss, the new year may be a great time to press the restart button on your career and transition to franchise ownership.

In the story, I talk about how I decided to change my own career path direction and make my ongoing dream of getting into franchising a reality. Through that process, I went from working in corporate America to running and owning three Hand & Stone franchise locations with my wife Denise. In addition to business ownership, I get to mentor other spa franchise owners to help ensure their success.
