HOTWORX congratulates franchisee, Shannon Miller, who was awarded 3 franchise licenses - 2 in the Bend, OR market and 1 in the Medford-Klamath Falls market. She recently opened her Redmond, OR (South) studio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
After working in the medical field for ten years, I decided to pursue a career in esthetics, helping others with their skin care, mainly cellulite. The beauty industry has been exciting while also unpredictable. I realized I need consistency, especially with opportunity to grow.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
Having an independent business has been extremely difficult and expensive. Being able to walk a path that others have cleared and tested is proving to be more of an adventure than a job.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
I chose to do a Hot Yoga session and was amazed at how I felt afterwards. The air was so clean and fresh and, though I did not understand about the infrared heating, I noticed a glow to my skin and I had more energy than when I came in.
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
It took longer than I had expected. I had no idea how much had been done to create this company and all I needed to learn. It was an easy process to follow the steps and I began looking forward to the phone calls.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
It was so exciting, even through the computer screen. Everyone explained what they do and their reason for being with HOTWORX.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
If it's a match, do it. There will never be a better time.

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
People coming together for a healthy activity to increase fitness levels, detox, and decrease stress levels.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
Making as many friends as possible, show up, and be consistent. The numbers will follow.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
Personally - it is already giving me a reason to set my alarm an hour earlier and get started on the day. I feel connected to so many like minded people. Professionally - I want to set an example for my two daughters that a single woman can buy into a franchise and be as wildly successful as she decides to be.
