For the past six months, I’ve featured a regular series of podcast episodes on Social Geek Radio about The Culture of Franchising.

Some of the most exciting industries in which to start a business this year involve anything related to home-improvement or auto repair. Regardless of how the recovery goes and how quickly some local businesses open, travel will be limited or still just not an option for many Americans.
