Monkee’s of Fredericksburg
Why did you want to own your own business?
I guess you could say it is in my blood. My grandfather opened a hardware store in Roanoke, VA when he returned from WW2 and my father became part owner before I was born. At an early age I spent my free time at the store “helping”.
I saw the pride my father and grandfather had in helping people and the joy they got from running their own business. Owning my own business challenges me, which I love! Life is short and should always be lived right on the edge of your comfort zone.
Monkee’s of Houston
Why did you want to own a Monkee’s?
Being a mom, I wanted a career that would give me flexibility to be there for my kids. However, to leave my kids even part of the day – it had to be something I was passionate about!! Monkee’s was the perfect fit. I could join the retail world with a successful franchisors support and have the control of my own destiny. Let’s face it though, the perk of the job is shopping for a living.
