Brown noted that Wallis' experience and positive way of looking at things are two markers of an ideal Sidestep Coaching franchisee. Wallis connected with Sidestep Coaching through the franchise portal,, which Brown cited as an excellent source of leads for his company.

According to Wallis, the decision to join Sidestep Coaching was not an expected one at first. He'd relocated from Toronto to take on a position that he intended to be the last part of his professional career before retirement. After a short time, the company was restructured and Wallis' position eliminated. With his experience and skill set, he had a hard time finding a job in the current market, so he turned to entrepreneurship instead.

Wallis' Internet research for franchises in a reasonable price range brought him to the website. The information provided by was invaluable in his search, allowing Wallis to evaluate a few franchise opportunities closely before he turned to Sidestep Coaching. The combination of Sidestep Coaching's price, training schedule and product range is what ultimately won Wallis over.
