September 2017 Lifestyle Letter 1

It is my great honor to introduce you to Jon Golczynski, the new publisher of Franklin Lifestyle! Jon has been a longtime mentor and confidant, and when this opportunity came along, he was the one person who came to mind who I knew would be the best fit for our community!

Jon currently is the owner of Franklin’s Printing, and understands how our local businesses operate, and how important their marketing needs are. He is also deeply involved in charitable causes and giving back, something you’ll read about later this year.

Hello Franklin,

It is with great pride and excitement that we bring to you the 2017 Best of Franklin edition. We celebrate successes throughout the year but this is the one occasion where we honor everyone at once. Success in business cannot be taken lightly. You can be the smartest, work the hardest, have the most talented staff, sweat the details, make substantial investments and STILL fall short of your goals. Many of the most successful business people can identify with that fact. In my business, I spend the most time thinking about the customer experience. Business owners who cultivate customers who become true advocates of their brand have little to worry about.

If you run your own business, you understand the value of enthusiastic customers. I can tell you that the one common thread among the 2017 winners is that they all have genuinely enthusiastic followings. Let me tell you that it gets me excited to see how much customer and reader participation is involved in this year’s results.

I must give a very big, “Thank You!” to our readers, advertisers, winners and voters for making this Best of Franklin a genuine success. The Franklin Lifestyle team has really worked hard on this and I look forward to celebrating greatness in the many aspects of our community.

Jon Golczynski
