Christine Robinson Purchases Existing Renew Crew Franchise

Unstable Economy Spurred Former Accountant to Take Control of Her Future

St. Louis, Mo. (PRWEB) September 09, 2014 - Christine Robinson’s job search wasn’t going as well as planned after she left her 17-year career as an accounting manager at a small business. Rather than wait for an opportunity to come her way, Robinson took control of her life and jumped from employee to employer.

"As the years go by, I have less and less faith in the stock market and the economy," she said. "I felt very strongly [that a business] was the safest place for me to invest my money and have hope of getting a return on my investment."

Robinson purchased an existing franchise, Renew Crew of St. Louis (formerly Wood ReNew), which cleans and protects outdoor living spaces, including decks, fences and siding, as well as stone, brick and concrete surfaces. Renew Crew uses a three-step proprietary process to power wash surfaces with eco-friendly products made exclusively for Renew Crew.

When searching for a way to finance her franchise purchase, a business broker recommended small business financing firm Guidant Financial. Using a process known as Rollovers for Business Start-ups, Guidant walked Robinson through a 401(k) rollover to fund her new business without paying a tax penalty.

"The idea of investing my hard-earned 401(k) in a corporation that was controlled by me was very appealing," Robinson explained. "[Working with Guidant] was a great experience with great people who were responsive and helped me through every step of the way."

Both Robinson and her husband enjoy the satisfaction that comes from being their own bosses and benefiting from their efforts. In her spare time, Robinson enjoys searching for antique treasures, DIY projects and gardening.

Renew Crew of St. Louis is open for business. To learn more about their services or schedule a free estimate, call 314-453-9663, email crobinson2012@live.com or visit stlouis.renewcrewclean.com.

About Renew Crew

Since 1993, Renew Crew has offered excellent personal service while delivering a cleaner clean, a greener clean and a longer lasting clean — all without risking damage to your surfaces. Their unique, three-step process was developed as a result of this goal, as did their exclusive, eco-friendly products and the decision to never use damaging high-pressure spraying. Step one is the application of a foam cleaner to soak and loosen dirt and grime; step two is similar to traditional pressure washing to spray away the grime; step three is the application of a protective sealant to keep outdoor spaces beautiful longer. The process is suitable for wood decks, wood fences, concrete patios, driveways, vinyl siding, stucco, log homes and many others. Learn more at http://www.renewcrewclean.com.
