On today's episode of Franchise Friday, we're joined by Linnore Gonzales, serial entrepreneur and Decor & You franchise owner.
About Our Guest
Linnore grew up with her family being entrepreneurs so she always knew that she will own and operate her own business. In 1999, Linnore and her husband bought a paint-your-own-ceramics studio in Englewood,CO and converted this independent business to a Color Me Mine franchise. In a span of 10 years they owned and operated three Color Me Mine retail locations in Park Meadows, Boulder and Cherry Creek.
In 2003, Linnore joined with the Decor & You® Franchise and opened a Decor & You® decorating firm in Highlands Ranch. Linnore employs a talented team of designers and design assistants who provide design services to the Denver Metro Area and Front Range communities.
Since opening the Highlands Ranch office, Decor & You® has been a phenomenal success winning numerous awards and accolades from “Best of the Best” in Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock and Englewood to winning the “Award of Excellence” at the Colorado Decorating and Remodeling Show. In 2011, Decor & You® was chosen as an Interior Design finalist by the Homebuilders Association (HBA) Bar and CARE Awards committee for a sustainable home they designed and decorated in Elizabeth, CO. Decor & You® also participated in numerous successful TV promotion campaigns:9News Rescue My Ugly Family Room makeover promotion, the local ABC station’s D&Y Makeover contest and Fox 31 Space Lift.

Jack Kovac's debut EP, "The State Line" is an expansive and introspective look into the mind of a growing, prolific songwriter. On each track, he inhabits the in-between spaces that separate musical expression from private rumination, giving artistic vision to every word and riff throughout. A Los Angeles transplant, Jack left the City of Broad Shoulders for the City of Angeles to study guitar performance at the University of Southern California. It was in the midst of musical learning and discovery that his world was opened up to the art of songwriting, He brings stories to life in music with an experimental edge that makes beautiful use of arrangement and dynamics, effortlessly pulling inspiration from the singer/songwriters of the 1970's and today. And he joins us this Friday with some of the new songs from his album, due for release Oct. 27, 2014.
Sa’ra Charismata is a musical muse born to Eritrean parents, raised in Stockholm, Sweden, and most recently residing in New York City. This tri-national millennial writes and co-produces songs of the yearning for freedom around the world and destruction caused by a culture of greed. In her process, she seems driven by forces beyond herself and the music puts you under the spell of those forces, which is why she was Nominated "Rookie Artist of the Year" at the 2014 Denniz Pop Awards. Sa’ra possesses that uncanny knack for drawing in a listener with triumphantly beautiful melodies and trippy beats while cleverly addressing the critical questions of her generation. We preview cuts from her debut album due out this fall and hear her inspiring story this Friday.
Today's Franchise Friday guest is Frank Soccorsi, President at Driven Brands Mobile services. He'll be joining us to talk about the ins and outs of his franchised business, diving into a profile of the ideal franchisee, exaimining the lifestyle choices afforded to franchisees, and much more.

Seattle-based Ransom and the Subset are set to release their debut album “No Time to Lose” on October 7, 2014. Fronted by RanDair Porter, Ransom and the Subset are an alternative rock band full of harmonies, magnetic power-pop chords, and soaring keyboard riffs that build arrangements that keep listeners coming back. When Porter assembled the band, he picked the best musicians he knew; producer and multi-instrumentalist Brian E. King (Guitar/Bass/Keys) and Grammy-winning engineer Ducky Carlisle (Drums/Background Vocals). Together they deliver a dynamic blend of heightened pop sensibilities and modern rock influences that appeal to all audiences.
Accompanied by a 21-piece band, Rory Partin is spreading his genuine passion for entertaining and making great music people can enjoy and most important, dance to. Having traveled to and performed in places such as Brussels, Paris, Prague, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Toronto, London, Helsinki, and many more, Partin plays standards, new songs, long-time favorites, and Cajun music from his home state Louisiana. There is nothing like Partin out there today. He can move from standards, to love songs to pop with ease and joy. And he has a new album of all of the above out. And he is with us this Friday to tell us how he does it.
Unfortunately I made the mistake once of saying on Facebook that I didn't remember it was Friday to which a friend of mine so kindly posted Rebecca Black's song "Friday." It has since always jumped into my head to remind me what day it is (sometimes other days too). Join me, Russ VanAllen, for a hard-hitting break-down of this weeks news and entertainment. The main portion of the show will be talking about the GOP...and why they suck at running campaigns. I should know, I work for them. You're about to be Russinized! Don't fight it...
