My Horn Football Clock Is Ticking.  At The Time Of This Posting, Only 27 More Days Until Kickoff.  Please Football God Let The Next Four (4) Weeks Pass Quickly.  I Have My Chin Strap Snapped And Ready To Begin My 43rd Year Of Season Tickets With  A Victory Over The Golden Domers.  Hook 'Em.





Is Living A Few Years Of Your

Life Like Most People Won’t,

So That You Can Spend The

Rest Of Your Life Like

Most People Can’t.



Are You Locked In The Prison Called "Fear & Uncertainty"?

A Window Of Opportunity Won’t Open Itself…


When I started the company I was 52 years old.  I had diabetes, lost my gall bladder and most of my thyroid gland.  But I was convinced that the best was ahead of me.

                                                                                                                               -Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds-


Studies have shown that the majority of Americans say they would like to own their own business.  But, only a few ever venture down the path of franchise / business ownership to freedom and independence.


Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving.†

  • Are you allowing your professional life to wander aimlessly, or stand still? 
  • Fed up with your job...ready to be your own boss?
  • "Burned-out" from corporate America?
  • Eager to infuse some excitement back into your work-life, but don’t know how to find your real niche in life? 

So, you are mentally stuck between the known reality of the unpleasant life in corporate America, and the unknown aspects of how you can get independence through business ownership... 


You are locked in the prison called "Fear and Uncertainty"..



The American Dream


Would this scenario be of interest and value to you…a process where you receive assistance to help you better identify your goals, financial requirements, lifestyle needs and what you would like for your work-life to look like; then provided information on self-employment options and guidance on exploring these opportunities within the confines of a supportive, educational and no-obligation environment?   


Using a Franchise Coach


Have a job you don’t like?  Seek other employment…I call that “Changing Your Curtainsâ€.  Perhaps, you prefer a bolder approach which may provide a new and invigorating work-life…I refer to that as “Changing Your Viewâ€.  In 2001, I decided to “Change My Viewâ€.  If you are ready…Let’s Talk.  I can help you “Change Your View†too…



A couple more weeks and  the legal and operational components will be completed for the franchising of Redd’s Barbershop.  Hopefully, in the near-future a Redd’s Barbershop will be in your local area.  


You live / work in Austin... I encourage you to visit Redd’s Barbershop and check out their unique and exemplary service.  Request Keesha Holland.  I believe you will enjoy the experience.

popdaddy, thanks for your kind thoughts.  Years ago, I read something like this... The period of U.S. history in which the greatest percentage of people became millionaires was during the Great Depression.  Yep, my timing has been questionable.  I left corporate American and opened my Handyman Connection franchise right after 9-11 when the U.S. was still on "Hold".  And, my present business, Franchise Quest in 2008 when the U.S. and world were entering a major recession.
