2020 was considered by many to be one of the most challenging years in our lifetime. As the calendar flips to a new year, we’re becoming more inspired by the future we wish to create for ourselves. There is no better time than now to take a leap of faith on yourself to make your tomorrow goals a reality.
“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.”Max Depree
Before Amanda and I dove headfirst into donuts, we were engulfed in our Corporate America jobs, working opposite schedules, spending limited time together and hoping to be able to utilize our two weeks of allotted vacation, based on company approval. We never dreamed that we could cultivate a truly flexible lifestyle that allowed us to travel when and where we wanted because we were immersed in our jobs at the time. We couldn’t fully visualize the long-term picture of “What’s Next” because our everyday life was clouded, and it seemed impossible to escape working for someone else and growing their dream.
Our tipping point finally came in 2014 when we came to a personal crossroad – we either were going to continue on this same path or start our own business. We chose the latter and never looked back. In any business, there is always a hesitation to get started and take the leap to become your own boss. You will always encounter challenges and frustrations and ask “am I doing it right?!” At the end of the day, being your own boss allows you control of your own destiny and to create the life that you want.
The most rewarding part of what we have built is being able to offer franchise opportunities for others to run their own business and live their own dreams. Our business model is more than just donuts. Making your business successful is a combination of hard work and dedication to your career, while also taking time to enjoy your family, freedom and creating a long-term lifestyle that you enjoy waking up to everyday. Will you be spending time in your happy place this year, on your own schedule?
