How It Started: A Background Brief
Teri’s background has a rich experience in the Marines. After six years of serving in the Marine Corps in Norfolk VA, Quantico VA, and Okinawa, Japan, Teri assumed that the transition phase-out of the military life would be simple. However, entering into the realm of civilian life wasn’t as pleasant.
Teri found it hard to combine her background expertise with finding a new job and starting a career.
Her military accomplishments, expertise in the M16, computer programming in the Marine Corps, and training Marines in the field did not translate into a regular, 9-5 job which would ensure a “white picket fence” to come back to.
That was when when she knew that she had to create her own future.
She kicked off her 20-year career in the trenches and moved into the financial services industry. She possessed different roles including a loan processor at a mortgage company, a mortgage loan officer, then a bank manager. Through these roles, she realized that those who have more financial stability and wealth are those who are self-employed.
Why You Should Go for It
When Teri first started her new life – the civilian one – she sought out starting a new business and landed on franchising. She wanted to invest in an already-proven and established business, and franchising was the answer.
She owned and operated a Massage Envy for 10 years by which she followed the systems and processes set by the franchisor. After only 6 short months, Teri was able to step away from the daily operations of the business to become a semi-absentee owner who essentially managed the manager. After growing the business to $1.5M in annual revenue, she was able to sell the business for a very profitable exit.
From Amazing Lash Studio, WaveMax, Laundry to Pet Evolution, Teri kept investing in franchise brands as a way to grow and diversify her portfolio. During this time, she also coached other investors on how to learn about and discover franchising opportunities as a vehicle for growth.
Whether you’re interested in creating a secondary income stream or parlaying the earnings into additional opportunities to grow, there is a franchise that fits your goal. Remember, scaling and diversifying your investments is the key to creating LEGACY WEALTH.
