I have a business relationship with the fine folks over at Guidant Financial in Washington state. Actually, it is more than just business. It is a fun relationship. Katherine and Anja are an energetic duo to say the least, and both of these gals go out of their way to help any franchise candidates that I send to them for some creative ideas concerning financing their franchise start-ups.
They even have blog! In their latest posting, they share with us how they have been able to actually "kill 2 birds with one stone." They are letting more of their employees telecommute, which means less smog. They are even strongly encouraging their emplyees to dump those nasty styrofoam cups for some cool Guidant ceramic mugs. The things that they are doing is not for PR. Good job, Guidant!
