June is for Gents

OK, gentlemen. You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all things masculine.

To gather information for this issue, we looked to the experts: the men of Franklin! You might even recognize a few faces. I once read the following quote: “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.” Leadership takes many forms, and the three gentlemen we feature have had many successes and failures throughout their careers. They offer a few words of wisdom. We also feature some local businesses owners who use their hands to make art, clothing and even keep your smile bright.

Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, a day to celebrate the fathers, brothers, sons and men in our lives we adore. Browse the gift guide and locally owned businesses featured. We feel certain there is something for everyone—even for the guy who has “everything.” Or, if you really want to go big with a “wow” factor, go outside—to the garage that is. Garages don’t have to be filled with junk anymore. If the guy in your life is looking for his own space, it’s possible to deck out a garage to make it an amazing liveable space for him to unwind.   

So, gents, crack open a cold one because this month is all about you!
