In the guest chair:
Franchise expert and regulator contributor, Leslie Kuban, from Frannet joined us in the studio today to talk about knowing yourself and what you’ll like and be good at.
Frannet has a test called the Proven Match Technology that helps people narrow down what kind of business is right for them and Leslie talked about how and why it works.
She also mentioned that listeners of The Dana Barrett Show can access the test at no charge by contacting Leslie directly for a private link!

In the headlines:
- The King & Queen buildings may go on the market again and could get the highest price ever paid for an Atlanta area office complex.
- The Atlanta Civic Center may not me closing but moving – forcing me to ponder, once again, what a civic center really is and why Atlanta needs one?
- The City of Atlanta may ask some departments to compete with private companies to keep their jobs. I kinda love it.
- And you know how we thought the Braves move to Cobb was happening in an underhanded kinda way… well that is no longer speculation. An AJC reporter ran a story over the weekend alleging that Cobb County Commissioner Tim Lee hired a lawyer off the books to negotiate with the Braves.
