This past weekend was the Annual Franchisee convention for Max Muscle. It was two days of meetings and networking. We had a great time, got to meet a lot of other store owners, learned some new things and got some great motivation.
This last year has been a blur. Trevor and I work really hard to do what we think and feel is right for us and our business. There are many forces working around us and its easy to get caught up in the drama of it all. Trevor doesn't usually let this other stuff get to him, I get all worked up and worried about things.
On Sunday, at lunch, there was an awards ceremony. Our store was awarded "Outstanding Store of the Year". They gave out three of these awards, one for the East, one for the West and one for the Central. We were honored to have recieved this award.
This award was validation of all we've done thus far. It was very satisfying and reminded me what its all about. When you do what you believe, what you think is right, things usually turn out okay! No matter what everyone else thinks or says, you have to do what is right for you. In the end, it just might make you Outstanding.
