My franchise journey started 30 years ago, with a single Great Clips franchise in the Greater Chicago area. This endeavor quickly expanded to five bustling locations in just over a decade. But my role was beyond that of a typical owner – I was an eager learner, absorbing invaluable insights from my corporate office and regional support team every step of the way. This dedication resulted in sustained growth, a sterling reputation, and a cohesive team with minimal turnover.
However, my journey was about more than just business milestones. For me, owning a franchise meant having a comprehensive toolkit to navigate, adapt, and thrive amidst the diverse challenges of a new venture.
I received a fantastic offer for my five-unit business, which I accepted. I walked away with generous compensation, armed with almost two decades of lessons learned in my journey of franchise ownership. As my professional network grew with board memberships at noteworthy organizations, my next steps were clear.
As a franchise consultant, I really found my groove, which led me to my passion: helping others achieve the professional success and personal freedom. I wanted to share my experience successfully living an abundant life on my own terms with others.
Everyone’s path to franchise ownership is unique. My journey began working in hospice, where I learned the power of really listening. That experience has been instrumental to the success I’ve helped my clients achieve.
Understanding your life, relationships, and goals is critical in finding the right business match. I’m your executive recruiter, wealth manager, and therapist in one. My role is to walk alongside you to help you navigate this journey.
My life is richer because I have the time to pursue my personal interests alongside my professional goals. We are multi-dimensional people, and only you know your dreams.
Just like the chainsaws I wield outside, I’m not afraid to cut through the branches to get to the root of my clients’ desires to help them achieve the financial future of their dreams. Believe me, I had some fear when I became self-employed, but like holding a chain-saw for the first time it became not only easier, but very comfortable.
What do you want to build? Generational wealth for your family? How about balance in your life to enjoy your family and hobbies today instead of waiting until retirement?
It’s time to unlock your life’s full potential and take the leap towards building the future you deserve!

A Free, Consultative Approach
I provide complimentary consultation services to individuals considering franchise ownership. Much like an Executive Recruiter, when a match is made, the franchise company, sends me a placement referral fee.
