Introducing 'Founders Stories': Our New Podcast

We've launched a brand new podcast, and to say we're excited about it would be a bit of an understatement. 

A weekly show about ordinary people on a journey to build their own exceptional businesses, Founders Stories is hosted by founder and CEO of O2E Brands, Brian Scudamore – and he's on a mission to uncover our Franchise Partners' stories. 

Featuring Franchise Partners from our three brands: 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, and Shack Shine, each episode takes a deep dive into what lit that entrepenurial spark, the decisions that lead them to take the leap, and the celebrations and lessons that follow.

There's Jocelyn Gold, whose path to business ownership began with a visit to her homesick brother. Ron Flanagan, a retired cop who explains how for him, it 'all started with a bad diet'. Andrew Wilson, who ran a franchise throughout two deployments to Afghanistan. Ethan Brooks, who discovered his entrepeneurial spirit as a kid selling snowcones – and so many more. 

Season 1 starts now! Check it out on all major podcast providers, tune in every Tuesday for a new episode, and let us know what you think by leaving a review!
