Nineteen years ago, I found myself in a position that I would never have imagined before that day. The company I worked for filed for bankruptcy and I was forced to search for a new job. At the same time, my parents-in-law had just moved in with my family due to health concerns and my two children had just entered middle school. I knew that my next position needed to offer greater flexibility and allow me to work remotely. This was 2002, years before the COVID-19 pandemic would make working remotely commonplace, so my only real option was starting my own business. Out of necessity, Registry Partners was born.
