Jumping Out Of Airplanes

Untitled

Would you do it?

Would you strap a parachute on, wait until the airplane is at what the pilot deems to be the right altitude, and

Jump?

I wouldn’t.

Peter Shankman does. His tweets @Skydiver made him stand out when Twitter was still young.

Now… you can follow him here. He’s hilarious.

(He always remembers my Birthday, too)

 

Would You Jump Into A Franchise Business?

I wouldn’t. But, not for the reason you think.

I wouldn’t jump into a franchise because I’ve been there and done that.

I wasn’t a good fit for franchise ownership.

That’s because I don’t like rules. Or politics. Or, BS.

Are you right for franchise ownership?

But, still…being a franchise owner was a great experience.

And, I still love franchising…and all of it’s possibilities.

I just want to make it better for everyone that’s involved in the industry, so the industry can become even better than it already is.

In my own gentle way.

And, while some may want to compare me to Chris Christie (I would be flattered. I really like the guy), it’s about my heart. My intentions.

I only want the right people to buy the right franchises at the right time in their lives.

I want franchisors to only award franchises to candidates that are right for their systems, right for franchising, and who have enough money to make it through the ramp-up time.

 

Buying A Franchise?

If you’re thinking of buying a franchise, you need to make sure that you’re ready to become an owner.

Business ownership can be a bit scary.

From my good friend, Rieva Lesonsky:

“If you’re thinking of starting a business, the idea probably scares you at least a little bit. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t feel a bit nervous at the idea of starting a business and making such a big change in your life. But what if you don’t feel scared at all? Great news, right?”

So, what can you do to alleviate your fears?

What can you do to avoid feeling like you’re about to jump out of an airplane?

Read this post on Rieva’s Small Biz Daily blog.

She has the answers.
