A Thank You Note From A Successful HRN® Business Owner

A Thank You Note From A Successful HRN® Business Owner

Below is an e-mail I received today from a successful Homeowner Referral Network (HRN®) owner.   No greater reward than this! Dear Debra, Just wanted to thank you for the confidence your referral business strategy instilled in us. Since we first purchased our HRN business packet our company has grown steadily. We were apprehensive in the beginning but your program gave us the confidence to try new things. We have been quite successful in those endeavors as well.

HRN Success Story: Meet Debra Farson
