I have a passion for entrepreneurship, particularly in the realm of creating positive change. After starting my career in a large Consumer Product Goods brand, I searched for an opportunity to apply my skills in a more purposeful and impactful way. I found this opportunity as the General Manager of the first School of Rock franchise in the Midwest. Despite facing significant challenges and a steep learning curve, I persevered and successfully established the Chicago location within 9 months. My experience and success was recognized, and I was promoted to a leadership role where I developed and shared effective strategies and best practices for hundreds of franchisees. Today, I work with potential franchisees to achieve their dream of purchasing a child based franchise and walk them through the First Steps to Success.

I own multiple units of 3 different franchise brands that are each focused primarily on childhood education.  My first franchise was School of Rock in 2008.  I was very inexperienced in both franchises and businesses focused on children.  I had the good fortune of working with Paige when she was the Director of Operations and her guidance and expertise allowed me to ultimately excel and thus branch out to 30 locations.  I wish I had Paige as a resource before I opened my first location.  I would have gone into it with better knowledge and expectations and I firmly believe I would have been even more successful and would have achieved that success faster.  Paige is a great resource to help anyone getting into any kid-oriented franchise business.  I highly recommend the early investment into her and her guidance… it will pay off in big ways

Anyone interested in a child-enrichment franchise should hire Paige Peavler. Her knowledge, expertise and experience working inside several child enrichment businesses coupled with her knowledge, expertise and experience in the franchise industry is unparalleled.
Even better than her knowledge is her ability to teach others. I first met Paige when I was a franchisee and she worked for the Franchisor. I learned so much from Paige, as was evidenced by my position in the Top 10 revenue-producing franchisees in the world. 
Paige is also really good at dishing out tough love. If she notices a concern for you, she will not hesitate to express it. You don't need to surround yourself with people who tell you what you want to hear. You need people who will tell you what you need to hear.  Paige Peavler is who you need.
