Guidance Along the Way

HOTWORX welcomes new franchisee, Dawn Bartholomew, who was awarded a franchise license in Fort Smith, Arkansas!

What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?

I have owned my own business for many years, and wanted to get into something I enjoyed. I was excited to get out of the extreme amounts of paperwork my other business requires.

What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?

I knew that franchises usually had everything pretty laid out for you and makes for a more simple way to start a new business.

What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?

I LOVED IT! It sold me even more, and if I was not opening my own studio I would have signed up.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?

I enjoyed getting to learn about the new science and learned about something I had no prior knowledge of.

How would you describe your Orientation Day visit and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?

It was very comfortable and made me excited for the future cruises and fun events that take place with this company.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?

They make it very simple, and give you guidance along the way. If you are nervous you'll be lost trying to open your own business, don't be. HOTWORX staff makes it very simple and easy to get started.

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?

1. The job security through fitness2. Friendly people within the franchise3. The unique business aspect HOTWORX provides

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?

A way for our busy working force who may not have time to get a 90 minute workout in can still benefit in the same way through our new, innovative studios.

What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?

My goal is to succeed so well in Fort Smith, I help my daughter open her very own studio somewhere.

How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?

It will help me achieve my five year goal of switching business directions but staying at the same income. I believe HOTWORX will allow me to do this.

Congratulations, Dawn, and welcome to the HOTWORX family!
