Kathy Stamps – Made in the Shade Inland Empire, CA
Made in the Shade proudly welcomes Kathy Stamps, from the Inland Empire area of Southern California. Kathy, who currently resides in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is no stranger to the world of entrepreneurship! She has owned her own interior design and staging company, as well as a successful franchise chain restaurant, for the last 14 years.
Kathy’s extensive experience with being her own boss and controlling her own destiny prompted her to find a franchise that would fulfill her true love – making homes beautiful and homeowners happy! When she discovered the Made in the Shade opportunity, she was able to check off all the boxes of what she was looking for in a new business venture.
What appealed to you about the Made in the Shade Opportunity?
Initially, what appealed to Kathy the most was the low franchise cost and no royalties. However, after speaking with the CEO, Cathy Morse, and Eddie Miller, the Director of Franchising, she was sold on the “family feel” of the franchise group. Kathy loves the fact that although Made in the Shade is a well-structured franchise model, the personal feel of the franchise was most appealing. Kathy confidently stated that the corporate attitude of finding the “right fit,” versus anyone who has a checkbook and can afford to purchase a franchise, sealed the deal for her!
What are your immediate business goals?
Kathy sets the bar high for her first year business goals, but as a seasoned entrepreneur, she knows what she is capable of accomplishing. After completing her February 2018 training in San Antonio, Kathy would like to be confident and knowledgeable of her product lines by mid-March. She would also like to reach $500,000 in sales by the end of her first year. The sky is the limit for this dynamic entrepreneur!
What are your long-term business goals?
Kathy’s ultimate goal is to be the TOP MITS franchise owner, while being a valuable help and resource to others in the group. How is that for team spirit?! We look forward to celebrating this goal with Kathy in the foreseeable future.
When asked about leisure hobbies and interests, Kathy smiled and said “Basketball games!!” Kathy and her husband “D” are the proud parents of 17 year old Legend Dary Stamps (yes, this is his real birth name!) who, at 6’9”, is showing some great promise for a career in the NBA! With Kathy’s goal to be the #1 MITS owner and Legend on the path to NBA greatness, keep your eye on these two superstars!
WELCOME to our MITS family, Kathy! Your superior client service skills and passion for people will earn you top honors on all levels.
