After many years in management and structuring processes, I wanted the freedom of managing my own business in a fun and rewarding way.
Plano, Texas (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
Twylla Bell has a strong business background under her belt, having worked in the financial industry for 30 years in auto financing and mortgage services. During that time, she continuously used painting as an outlet, exploring her artistic side with watercolors, acrylics and oil pastels. When Bell was ready to leave the corporate world behind, the wine and art franchise Bottle and Bottega caught her eye.
“After many years in management and structuring processes, I wanted the freedom of managing my own business in a fun and rewarding way,” Bell said. “It was key to choose a business that had a quality product and proven performance.”
Bottle and Bottega met Bell’s requirements and allowed her to unite her artistic interest with her business background. The franchise offers social art parties for public, private and corporate events with only one goal — unleashing the inner artist in everyone. Aspiring artists can visit the local Plano studio or partnership venues, or host a party in their homes or places of business.
“It’s not an art class; it’s an art party,” Bell explained. “Scratch the structure. Lose the lecture. Bottle & Bottega is all about friends, a canvas and a bottle of wine.”
While searching for franchising opportunities, Bell discovered Guidant Financial, a national business financing firm known for helping entrepreneurs leverage their retirement funds to invest in a business or franchise. Bell decided to use Guidant’s services and has been pleased with the knowledge and support she received. “Going into business on your own can be intimidating, but [Guidant] helped me gain more confidence in the decision I was making.”
Outside of the business realm, Bell is an avid runner. A member of the national Marathon Maniacs club, she has completed five marathons, nine half-marathons and 12 other distance races since Fall 2013. “Running keeps me grounded, and I really enjoy the camaraderie,” she said.
Bell’s new Bottle & Bottega studio is located at 1900 Preston Rd., Suite 367 in Plano. The grand opening ceremony is scheduled for tomorrow, Feb. 4.
