Scott Thompson, CDO at Big Blue Swim School, was featured on Mainland's Live To Tell Podcast. Scott dove into his background and how he overcoming adversity made him stronger providing a road to success.
"I was a franchisee first. I took the reverse routes that most folks take. I started as an entrepreneur and had a passion for fitness, and bought a few locations in Massachusetts and had great success there. But, I don't think that success translated over to the franchisor side or the corporate realm. I was told by many people and actually was laid off." explained Thompson on Live To Tell. He began to talk about his transformation, and explained, "One of the things I really focused on is that I loved franchising and believed in the model of franchising and how it can truly take someone from poverty to prosperity, as long as you have the work ethic and the desire to become successful," explained Thompson on Live To Tell.
