Robert & Chelsey Pegram: Entrepreneurial By Nature
Robert and Chelsey Pegram, are Fibrenew franchise owners in Virginia. They vibrate with entrepreneurial enthusiasm and energy and they simply love what they do!
Prior to coming on board with Fibrenew, the couple was running their own landscaping business but were having issues finding their place in a very crowded market and were stagnating due to what Robert refers to as a lack of support and resources. That's where the systems and support of a franchise looked appealing to them and they decided to make the switch and started Fibrenew Hampton Roads in August of 2021.
They have lots to share about their journey and offer some sage advice for fellow entrepreneurs looking to start new a venture.
From Brazil to California with Fibrenew
In 2019, Alex Fachinello, his wife and their 2 children sold everything they owned in their native country of Brazil, relocated to Southern California and started a Fibrenew business. In this podcast conversation, Alex talks about their huge leap of faith, how they worked through the E2 investment visa process, and how he eventually found a sense of comfort and belonging not only in a new country but as a business owner with Fibrenew.
His story is extremely inspirational - it's one of courage, of risk and reward and hard work with no looking back. If you want to speak directly with Alex, you can find him at fibrenew.com/newport.

Planning & Goal Setting
In this episode, we sat down with Fibrenew's support leaders Al Crnjac, Scott Neal, Michael Carter, Chad Hendry, Paul Gingras and Bruce Nurse. We talked about what each one of them is planning for the year ahead, and what they want to achieve and see happen in their own businesses. We also stepped through a time machine exercise and imagined winding the clock back to their 1st or 2nd year of operation, and knowing what they know now, what would they be focused on in building and growing their businesses.We hope you enjoy listening in, cheers!
