Before I became a Gideon Franchisee I was working as a physical therapist. As I learned more about Gideon, I realized what an invaluable source of supplemental education it was for my kids and other children. I quickly recognized how that aligned with my upbringing and the way I valued education. Gideon allows us to focus on kids’ strengths and weaknesses. It’s self-paced and individualized.
I’m a mom of three elementary school kids. As my kids grew older, my career felt so separate from my children. I wanted something more that allowed me to help others, especially children. As a Gideon franchisee, I am able to keep my day job as a physical therapist and spend my evenings at the center with my kids. Gideon has become such a part of our family that my children are excited to continue with this business as they become adults.
Right now, I’m really seeing the growth in my business and the way it’s growing in the community. I believe that this will eventually replace my physical therapy job and potentially even my husband’s physical therapy job. The revenue is strong enough that this is a possibility that my family is considering. Even with my physical therapy job, the flexibility with Gideon allows me to take care of myself and focus on my health. I know this will be even greater in the future when I am solely focused on my center.
This is a service that’s nonending and year-round. You’re not just giving. You’re also experiencing the fulfillment of children’s progress and watching their self-esteem grow. The intangible things make up the beauty of being a Gideon franchisee. The experiences are priceless.
