“Owning an Amazing Athletes franchise has completely changed my life. This amazing opportunity has allowed me to work with youth, make a difference in both kids’ and parents’ lives, and help do my part to make my little corner of the country just a little bit healthier. Coaching, sports, and kids have always been a passion of mine, and owning an Amazing Athletes franchise has allowed me to live out my dream in a very exciting way!
Honestly, I don’t really feel like I’ve even ‘worked’ since I started the franchise. I think that’s a huge testament to how much fun it is to do what we do.”
