    After 17 years in corporate sales and distribution, Christy Wilson Delk
    decided to risk it all. In 1996, she sold her house and cashed out her
    401(k) for the down payment she needed to buy and build a Kids ‘R’ Kids
    Academy franchise in Orlando, Florida. Over the next 15 years, Christy
    expanded twice and grew her business into one of the largest franchises in
    her industry before her multi- million dollar exit in 2012.

    Now, as a college professor and a sought after franchise industry expert,
    Christy has turned her focus to helping franchisees realize greater
    professional rewards by complimenting existing franchisor systems and

    and her book, Adventures in Franchise Ownership: 4 Pillars to Strengthen,
    Protect and Grow Your Business, to teach others how to implement their own
    4 Pillars Approach and lead them to higher performance and success through
    consultations, workshops, and speaking engagements.
