U.S. Navy Veteran Derek Harris Gives Thanks for the Opportunity to Start His Own Business

Derek Harris is veteran of the United States military, having served 6 years in the Navy. Like many other veterans, he was faced with the question of what to do with his life after active duty. The United States is a nation where its citizens are free to pursue the American Dream. Derek Harris did just that and started his own Tailored Living franchise business. Looking back, he is very thankful to have had the opportunity.

“One of the greatest things about this country is that we are all free to pursue our aspirations,” said Derek Harris. “Whatever we can dream up, we can make happen. In my case, I’m very thankful to be able to run my own Tailored Living business!”

Veterans often make ideal franchise business owners because the skills they obtain while in the military can be directly applied to the business environment. These skills include discipline, leadership, determination and teamwork. Plus, franchise businesses have set structures and support systems similar to those in place in the military.

“When I was in the Navy, we had an established protocol to follow in order to accomplish objectives,” said Derek. “We also had a team-oriented support system, something I’ve experienced from the Tailored Living corporate team that I’m thankful to have.”

As a way to give back and encourage veterans to become franchise business owners, Tailored Living has launched the Million Dollar Franchise Event which grants a significant discount off the purchase of a Tailored Living franchise. For more information please click here.

Store Your Seasonal Belongings Easily with Functional Garage Organization Solutions from Tailored Living

The holiday season is a magical time, beautiful white snow on the ground, everyone in happy spirits, and friends and family gathering to share in each other’s good company. But despite the holiday cheer, it is also the time of year where husbands and wives find themselves wrestling the holiday decorations down from the attic, up from the basement and out of their yearlong hibernation. And every year they vow to organize their decorations and make them more accessible next year to decrease the stress that comes with taking down and setting up all the seasonal décor. This year, store your seasonal decorations, sports gear, apparel, and equipment in an easy to access and well-organized area – your garage!

The garage has plenty of space that is often wasted by poor organization or even a complete lack of garage organization solutions. There are many ways to convert your cluttered garage into an organized and streamlined space used for storing your seasonal belongings. There are two main spaces of your garage that are perfect for storage; these areas are the walls and the ceilings. Now, when it comes to finding the right garage storage solutions for your specific situation, you have to take into account what kind of space you are working with. Can you install full sized garage cabinetry units along the sides and back of your garage? If you can, that may be your best option for storage of larger objects. If you don’t have enough room for full-sized cabinets, you can always try implementing customized garage shelving that will keep your items organized and off the ground. OR you can go with the widely popular gridwall racks available through your local Tailored Living. Gridwall racks provide a garage storage solution that can work for anything from bicycles to tennis balls and everything in between.

Aside from the walls spanning your garage, you have an entire space of ceiling that is often overlooked by homeowners. Overhead storage is the perfect garage organization solution for seasonal decorations, sports gear, equipment, and apparel. It stays out of the way for the majority of the year, but when you need it, it is easily accessible!
