PEOPLE BUSINESSES
IT'S
A SPECIAL
It's a special
career indeed that allows you to
make a difference in society as well as make
a good living. In fact, several companies we
profile in this issue do well by doing good.
"This is really a people business and we
are changing people's lives," notes Jeff Bevis, president and CEO of FirstLight HomeCare (page 48). "If that appeals to you then
this may be a franchise to consider."
Frank Samson, CEO of Senior Care Authority (page 62), has a similar view. "People get into this because it really makes you
feel good at the end of the day," Samson explains, "the fact that you can make a good
living, build equity in the business and really
feel like you gave back by helping families."
FirstLight HomeCare and Senior Care
Authority both help families care for their
eldest members. Other business models focus on clients who are quite a bit younger.
"Everything we do on a day-to-day basis
[is] with the care and education of children
in mind," explains Greg Helwig, the president of childcare provider Kiddie Academy
(page 58). "We focus a lot on character issues, which you don't often hear about, but
for us it's very important to teach children

manners and politeness in addition to all the
essential educational pieces."
Then there is Tutor Doctor (page 64),
which helps students who might be struggling academically. "The biggest gift that
students come away from the program with
is the confidence that they can accomplish
anything they set their minds to," President
Frank Milner observes.
Of course, all franchises should have some
positive impacts on their communities. But
if yours specializes in giving people a hand,
we'd love to hear from you.
