As an international franchise success story, Mary Ellen Sheets — developer of the largset franchised moving company in the United States — is beyond driven.

And she’s the latest episode in the podcast series, Be Relentless, from the Traverse City marketing company Oneupweb.

“Mary Ellen is a true motivator,” said Lisa Wehr, Oneupweb CEO and founder.  “With all of her success, and willingness to share her challenges and advice, she’s the perfect role model for every business person and budding entrepreneur.”

Oneupweb’s monthly podcast series, “Be Relentless: Business Success Against the Odds” delivers the inspirational stories of Michigan’s leading entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals.

In the latest episode, Sheets reveals how she first started her franchise moving company with only one truck and a $350 investment. Today, Two Men and a Truck consists of over 1,300 trucks. Taking her business by the wheel with the help of her three children, Sheets has earned countless awards and recognition. Amongst the many titles she’s received, both the International Franchise Association and Franchising World have named her Entrepreneur of the Year.

“Two Men and a Truck is a brilliant business success story,” says Wehr. “And Mary Ellen narrates her entrepreneurial journey charmingly.”
