Celebrating World Entrepreneurs Day

Celebrating World Entrepreneurs DayWorld Entrepreneurs Day is August 21 and its purpose is to create awareness for entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership throughout the world.  It is a time to recognize those who have started their own business and learn more about their challenges and successes along the way.

Franchisee Spotlight: Bill and Sheri Granger

Franchisee Spotlight: Bill and Sheri Granger If you have ever looked into franchises and how they work, it’s always interesting to see how one comes together.

The automatic transmission is a little like an orchestra conductor, making sure the electric ... read more

You might sail over one without any issues whatsoever, and your car may feel the lingering effects from one for some time.  Those effects can be quite costly, however, as the American Automobile Association (AAA) estimates, drivers spend $3 billion a year on damage to their cars from potholes. If you do hit a pothole, here are some things to keep in mind. Don’t panic. Try to not panic or get too angry at yourself for driving over a pothole. They’re everywhere. In Denver, for instance, the city fills 60,000 to 100,000 potholes a year. Houston h ... read more
