“Heidi is a powerful, dynamic speaker – wonderful in front of a large audience, and equally engaging in a small group setting. It’s not just that the account of her personal and professional life is interesting and poignant, it’s that she delivers it with such sincerity and humility that everyone in the room feels a connection. Highest favorable rating from event attendees for any outside speaker we have ever had.”

– Joe Stewart
Executive Director, NC FreeEnterprise Foundation

“Launching a franchise is not for the faint of heart, but when you love what you do as much as Heidi Ganahl does and so wonderfully describes in this book of inspiration, the risks and challenges are just way stations on the road to a greater goal. It also helps to have customers who immediately show their satisfaction with yelps of joy and wagging tails.”

– Matthew Shay
President and CEO, International Franchise Association
