Were we being too hasty? We had only visited 1 franchise and there was one more like it we knew about. Why not look at the competitor? What was their corporate culture like? We seemed to fit in with Comfort Keepers. Calls were made to some of the franchisees, we asked my Dad, who is a CPA to look at their Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet for us and to give us questions to ask about the soundness of their company.
We still had jobs. We were beginning to hate what we were doing and how we were being treated. The thoughts of taking control of our lives was dominating our conversations. The fear of doing something new would always bring us back to the fact that we still had jobs. One by one our colleagues began to disappear. Mike and I realized the clock was ticking faster and it was time to say yes.
