I often hear from laundromat owners or former owners that when they first bought their laundromat it wasn't what they expected. Often it was significantly more work and stress than they anticipated. 

Many owners cut their losses and sell their laundromat business. They then go off and explore other opportunities. A very few tough it out and either eventually find success, or eventually throw in the towel. Even less end up selling their laundromats only to regret it and buy the exact businesses they sold back.

That's Nathalie Beaubien's story. After a stressful and overwhelming start in her laundromat journey, she got to a point where she needed to sell her businesses. Shortly after she did, she regretted it. 

In today's show, Nathalie tells her story about why laundromat ownership was overwhelming, why she sold her businesses, why she bought them back, and what was different the second time around that turned her into the "Soap Box Queen!"
