How to Find the Right Franchisees, According to D1 Training’s COO

As an NCAA Division 1 athlete at the United States Military Academy, Dan Murphy quickly learned the value of a strong team — for success, and for his own sanity: “West Point can be stressful, and the soccer team became my respite.” After graduating and serving in the Army, he was craving that community when he discovered D1 Training, at the time a small gym in Nashville focusing on group training programs and coaching, started by fellow former D1 athlete Will Bartholomew. Murphy jumped at the chance to join the brand, and 15 years later, he is COO of the fast-growing franchise with nearly 50 locations and 150 more in development. That early lesson from his military days still holds true as D1 scales: There’s strength in numbers.

Unveiling a Croatian love story

Marita was a young nun on a Croatian island when she first met Fani, a fellow sister who would become her great love. 

“I simply followed my heart,” the 36-year-old says of their story — the subject of a new, bold documentary in the staunchly Catholic country, where LGBTQ rights are limited.

Titled “Nun of Your Business”, the film premiered at the ZagrebDox international documentary film festival over the weekend, scooping up an audience award. 

“It tells the story of an unexpected and unusual love, but my directorial focus was more on the issue of personal freedom,” Croatian director Ivana Marinic Kragic told AFP.

The two women “found strength to eventually fight for their love, which is not generally accepted in our society, and they made a U-turn in their lives,” she said.

With the help of actors to reconstruct some scenes, the documentary tracks the lives of the women
