Scaling a business to 21 locations...a business you started in your youth... imagine what it takes to see that through. Imagine just how many twists and turns you might have taken to get there. Just to name a few things..patience, courage, desire, commitment.
Hayley Henning, CEO and founder of Characters.io, and I are having that very conversation about traveling the entrepreneurial journey at scale and her 21 location scale-up.
After starting Characters.io in 2008 at age 19, she took the concept from a single location to a successful 21-location franchise that performs thousands of events nation-wide, most recently pivoting into the virtual space as a result of COVID-19.
Characters.io brings exhilarating characters with unlimited possibilities. Bringing fairytales and self-empowerment to schools, at-risk youth, critically ill children, camps, businesses, birthdays, virtual memberships, and more!
In this episode, we’ll talk about…
Why patience is a virtue in entrepreneurship
Why your goals should be aligned with priorities
How testing everything gives you major freedoms
