Dom is a franchisee to BookKeeping Express. BookKeeping Express, a national organization and franchise that provides businesses with professional bookkeeping services. Bookkeeping Express was founded in 1984 in California.  Next we meet with Nick Rizzi of the Smart Tax franchise opportunity.  Smart Tax allows its franchisees to own a tax preparation business without requiring a background in finance, accounting, or tax law - it's a business that is easy to start up and operate, just by following the established and comprehensive Smart Tax franchise system.In Part Three, we are meeting with Tab Burkhalter: Founder and CEO of Numbers House, which specializes in helping entrepreneurs legally start their businesses, as well as providing back-end office support in bookkeeping, payroll, etc. Tab is a licensed CPA who can provide expert commentary and insight on all things business-related in the home services field.

Franchise Interviews Meets with the Black Tie Moving Franchise
We are meeting with Dustin Black, Founder and CEO of Black Tie Moving.  Dustin is no stranger to the moving industry. From the time he was a child, Black worked for his father’s moving company, learning the ins and outs of the industry while also getting a behind the curtain view of exactly who homeowners were trusting their belongings.  With eight locations open and 24 new franchise territories under development, Black Tie Moving is rapidly expanding across the nation.  Black was not impressed with caliber of movers available to consumers at that time, so rather than following in his dad’s footsteps, he turned his sights on baseball – even gaining a college scholarship before a knee injury sidelined him and removed him from school.After a terrible experience using a moving company that damaged $34,000 of his furniture, Black knew there was a hole to fill in the moving industry. In 2013, he founded Black Tie Moving, a luxury moving and relocation concept, with the goal to create the first professional moving service customers could trust and rely on. Black holds his movers to a higher standard of presentation and professionalism, while offering affordable comprehensive moving services. His company is so successful, it has garnered the interest of several big name celebrities, including Carrie Underwood as a client and Rascal Flatts lead singer, Gary LeVox as a business partner.In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
