After leaving the corporate world behind, this entrepreneur created a legacy business for her children
When Linda Dunham made the decision to leave the corporate world behind, she and her husband wanted to own a business that allowed them to live a meaningful life helping others.
When the couple found Relax The Back, they knew they found a perfect fit. Today, Linda owns three Relax The Back franchise locations in Oregon, and after close to a decade in business, she is taking steps for her youngest daughter to take the business over when she retires.
This is her story:
Why did you choose to invest in Relax The Back?
We met with a franchise coach to help us explore options and we became very interested when we discovered Relax The Back. We knew the brand, but when we went to Discovery Day, we were impressed with how serious they were about the process. We trusted the leadership team and we decided that this was a great opportunity.
What makes Relax The Back unique?
When people come to us, they don’t know what they need. We help them, we educate them. We take time to find out exactly what their budgets are, their goals, and we provide a solution. It’s a very hands-on relationship with the customers – and it’s incredibly rewarding.
Who is the ideal franchise owner for Relax The Back?
You need to have an outgoing personality and be comfortable helping people who are looking for solutions. Relax The Back provides a great model and great support; all you have to do is follow the business model, hire the right people, treat them well, and work hard.
What are your hopes for your business?
When I retire, the plan is for my youngest daughter to take over the business. It’s very rewarding to know that I’ve built something that will continue on – and I know my daughter will make a terrific owner and be very successful!
