After being a PLN client and advocate for health I took interest in partnering with PLN on the Charlotte market. We pre-launched in early 2017 and opened our first retail location in November of last year. The success has been amazing. We are creating lasting change in our clients lives all while building a profitable business. We are on pace to surpass 1 million in revenue in our first full year.Jeremy Batt - PLN Charlotte
