Michael Arrowsmith, Veteran On The Move

Michael Arrowsmith, the Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa, came on the show to discuss franchises and the opportunities they offer for veterans looking to start their own business.

Michael gives tips on what to look for when researching franchises and how to find a brand that is a good match for you. He also goes into detail about the opportunities for veterans at Pinch A Penny and the team oriented company culture they have created.
