Wade Yarbrough, Owner

I wish I had done it 10 years ago.

Wade Yarbrough grew up in an entrepreneurial environment that valued mathematics — his father owned a business that Yarbrough also worked in, and his mother was a geometry teacher. Now, after spending more than 30 years in corporate America in the health care software industry, he’s ready to take on entrepreneurship himself.

“I wish I had done it 10 years ago,” Yarbrough said of his decision to purchase an existing Mathnasium franchise. “My favorite part of business ownership is being able to make all of the decisions regarding the operation of my franchise.”

Mathnasium is a math-only education center that teaches grade-schoolers mathematics in a way that makes sense to them. Mathnasium of Apex has a long history of working with the students, parents, teachers and schools of the Triangle area. “We’ve developed community relationships with many of the local schools, and we know what students should expect to see in their classrooms,” Yarbrough said.

A friend introduced Yarbrough to a 401(k) rollover as a way to fund his business. After researching the option, Yarbrough found Guidant Financial in an Internet search and used the small business financing firm to guide him through the process. Thanks to Guidant’s support, he was able to leverage his nest egg funds without triggering a tax penalty.

“The process with Guidant has been great,” Yarbrough, who also owns a 14-acre horse farm with his wife, explained. “They provided the support I needed, answered all of my questions and provided the follow-up to make sure I met all my deadlines.”

Mathnasium of Apex, located at 962 U.S. Highway 64, is open for business. To learn more or take advantage of their tutoring services, call 929-465-3907 or visit mathnasium.com/apex.
