In 2005, Dwyer-Owens released her first book, “Live R.I.C.H.: How to build success in your company and your life with a proven Code of Values” and became a popular international motivational speaker on the topic of Living R.I.C.H.

Both books are available for purchase at Values-INC.com.
Dwyer-Owens is the 2010 past chair of the International Franchise Association (IFA), the world’s oldest and largest organization representing franchising worldwide. In this role, she testified on behalf of small business owners before the United States House of Representatives Committee on Small Business, was a guest speaker to the China Franchise Expo in Beijing, and shared the stage with President George W. Bush at the 2010 Annual Convention for the IFA, along with her more traditional duties.
Dwyer-Owens also spearheaded the reintroduction of the IFA’s VetFran program in 2001, which now includes some 650 franchisors that offer franchising financial incentives to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. To-date, more than 6,000 military veterans have become franchise owners through the VetFran program. In 2002, the IFA awarded Dwyer-Owens the Bonny LeVine Award, the IFA’s highest award for women who mentor other women and advance the careers of women in franchising.
