“After nearly 25 years of working with the same Company, taking on more responsibilities and longer hours each year, I finally realized that half of my life had been spent working at a job I no longer loved.  While searching the internet for new job opportunities, I came across “Your Own”.  I thought to myself, why not consider franchise ownership?  It would be nice to work for myself rather than putting all my efforts into another company that reaps the profits.  I was very fortunate to fall under the guidance of Franchise Advisor Greg Bast at Your Own Franchise.  Greg shared several different franchise options with me, based on my personal profile analysis.  After a few short weeks of leading me through the research and investigation process, Greg had helped me discover a business I would have never realized existed, much less become a perfect match for my skills and desired life style.  I am now a new franchise owner, and can’t wait to get started with this exciting new life for myself and my family.  It really has been rewarding to find Your Own Franchise.”
