A letter from Audra, owner of Rhea Lana's of Southwest DFW, to her dad.

This is a personal story written by Kristie Smith, owner of Rhea Lana's of Searcy. It's her recording of an experience that changed her life, and her family's life, and a boy named Michael's life...all because she was working at a Rhea Lana's event with her sister. I asked her if I could share it because it has inspired me (and many others) to do things we never dreamed!

Last August one of my son's friends collapsed on the football field during summer workouts. He was rushed to Arkansas Children's Hospital with an internal temperature of over 104. Tyler was a healthy 16 year old boy who has played summer sports since he was 6. On that day, his body didn't cool like it was supposed to. His coaches and medical care staff did everything they could do, but Tyler died in December. His family is now working to educate parents about the danger of summer heat.

That's all I can think about as I reflect on the great weekend I just spent at our annual Rhea Lana's Franchise Owner's Conference. Not only were we in the beautiful Crowne Plaza in Little Rock, but the beautiful ladies and families who are our company made the weekend a huge WOW!

There's a lot of talk today about a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics about sports drinks. We often get these out in the summer time at the ball parks and at picnics, but are they the best thing for all children? The report also wants parents to be aware of what they are letting their children drink when they splurge on an energy drink. SPORTS DRINKS AND ENERGY DRINKS are not equal. 
 So what's in your fridge?

We're super excited about all the new franchises we've added this season! We have hundreds of applicants for franchises as our excitement rubs off on those who come to our super events and want in! We have a hands-on approach to selecting those cities and folks who will be representing us. We are honored that so many want to be a part of our family, but the best fit for success is what we're after as a company.
These pictures were taken at different events this season as new franchisees trained with us:
