Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
Valerie and Blake Nicholson both had long careers in technology at internationally known companies. After the birth of their third son, they decided to find a way to combine their love of technology and people while building something for the future.
Their solution: use their retirement accounts to purchase a TapSnap franchise. TapSnap is a modern take on the photo booth that leverages the latest advances in touchscreen technology with the incredible popularity of social media and digital photo sharing. It’s also one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s “10 Most Promising New Franchises.”
Valerie Nicholson is enthusiastic about the service: “TapSnap is great for making sure guests have a blast at weddings, corporate events, trade shows, golf tournaments and more. The system enables event organizers to bring guests closer together, generate buzz for their event (while it's still happening!), and create photo and video mementos of any special occasion.”
Once the Nicholsons had their hearts set on TapSnap, financing the venture was the next step. TapSnap recommended Guidant Financial, who assisted them with a 401(k) rollover. “Guidant simplified an otherwise complex process and enabled us to focus entirely on the business itself. Their team is exceedingly professional and responsive,” says Valerie.
Blake Nicholson sums up the new venture: “For us, one of the best things about having this business is the excitement of building something together. We want to be an example for our kids, of following your dreams, and also leaving a legacy for the next generation.”
The Nicholsons will start accepting event bookings for TapSnap next week—just in time for holiday festivities. You can find the Nicholsons’ TapSnap franchise at tapsnap1073.com, email them at blaken(at)tapsnap(dot)net or give them a call at (512) 800-0766.
