May 15, 2008 // Franchising.com // On May 19th, The Balancing Act, the television series dedicated to addressing the issues facing today's professional woman, will feature Andrea Molitor, a successful Fantastic Sams franchisee from Florida, talking about the life-balance benefits Fantastic Sams salon ownership offers to working moms.
According to Molitor, being part of a successful franchise like Fantastic Sams enables working moms to be in business for themselves, not by themselves. She adds that being an owner allows her to schedule her hours around her family and that one of the reasons she chose Fantastic Sams versus other franchise opportunities, is that the business is fun, tends to be recession resistant and that she didn't need industry experience to become an owner.
