Liz Naber is a Pure Barre franchisee. Pure Barre is a total body workout that uses the ballet bar to perform movements that help burn fat and create long, lean physiques.

After a year of doing barre regularly, the company that Liz worked for was going in a different direction, and she decided to make the leap into becoming a franchise owner.
In this episode of Small Business Edge, Liz shares what it’s like to be a franchise owner and how it differed from what she expected.
