Peter Tourian, founder of SYNERGY HomeCare and Araya Clean, eats the same big breakfast every morning.

Tourian founded and operates two emerging franchise companies out of Phoenix, Arizona.SYNERGY HomeCare is a non-medical in-home senior care company, and Araya Clean is a power-washing franchise.

Before becoming an entrepreneur, Tourian served as a deputy in the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, and that's where he developed an appreciation for a strict morning regimen. Every day he gets up at 5:30 a.m. and spends 30 minutes checking his email and industry news before a 30-minute workout.
