Jean Kuhn of Bounce Solutions

Business Consulting – Jean Kuhn

Jean Kuhn, is a serial entrepreneur who became self-employed on April 29, 1985, at 8:52 pm, when the nurse put that first baby in her arms, and she immediately knew she wasn’t going back to a job she hated.

In 2002, Jean bought her first bankrupt franchise business and turned it into a profitable cash-generating machine in 12 months.  In 2006, she bought a second bankrupt franchise business and created another cash-generating machine in less than 12 months.

In both cases, Jean added $100,000 to the bottom line for each company in the first year. She did this with no list, no help or training from the franchise, and no budget for marketing. She created low-cost/no-cost marketing strategies that she still teaches her clients today.

Jean, has been a successful business strategist since 2006 when she started helping all types of businesses grow and scale their businesses.

Legal Shield, Identity Theft Protection, Prepaid Legal – Lynn Lionhood

Lynn Lionhood is with LegalShield/IDShield and she works with individuals, families, small business owners and employee groups to protect them and their families with the help they need in their day-to-day issues that need resolution.  Maybe it is an issue with insurance, car repairs, mortgage or landlord, airline, utility company, cell phone, internet, neighbor, creditor, school, employer, family law issue, whatever your particular issue; wouldn’t it be great to have an entire law firm to assist you?   Maybe you haven’t gotten around to preparing your estate documents like a will, living will and medical power of attorney.   These are complimentary.   Do you really know where to begin to restore your identity once it has been compromised? Do you realize your children have a social security number since birth and no one really looks at it for 16-17 years?  The criminals know this and find them a ripe target. What about your business, do you need help with contracts, collection of debt, HR issues or maybe government compliance?  Maybe you would like to offer employee benefits but can’t afford it.  Let’s have a conversation and see how I can bring a smile to you today.
