Do I Need Prior Experience?
As An Owner, Do I Need To Be Full Time 'Hands On'?
It’s important you spend significant time in the business to learn the intricacies of it, build your team and personally ensure each of your initial pools are successful. As you grow into new pools, you’re likely to step away from the day to day, and focus more on the bigger picture. Or, like some of our franchise owners, focus more on vacations and your golf swing! All in due time of course.
