Last Friday, June 29th, the sale of DOYLES was finalized, and I for the first time in a long time, am now an employee and not an employer. The transaction had mechanical challenges that I have experienced in previous deals, but this one was very different. I was very emotional throughout the process and took everything personal. Family legacy, personal promises, insecurity, and fear of the unknown all weighed heavy on my heart. I kept having reminding myself to stay humble and calm, and it was never easy. Ultimately, it has all worked out, and I’m beginning to feel relieved. Most of all, I am grateful.
