Sometimes, I run across opportunities that aren’t franchises. The business type doesn’t really matter much to me as long as it’s a real opportunity for someone to get into business for themselves. And it’s proven.
I’ve been a referral partner of Speaking Roses for 2 years. If you’ve read any of my 1,000+ articles on franchising and small business, you know that I’m a skeptical soul. I’m picky. Real picky. So, when Rene, (the CEO of SR) approached me with his “opportunity,” I was..well… skeptical.
That was until he sent a beautiful bouquet of roses to my wife’s office. Rene didn’t do it to impress me. He wanted me to see how she’d react to The Roses.
After they were delivered, she called me….
Wife: “Joel, where did these come from?”
Me: “Hi honey. Do you like them?”
Wife: “Yes! How did you get Grace’s (our daughter) picture on a dozen red and pink roses?”
Me:“ I didn’t do it.” They’re from Speaking Roses, a cool business out of California. Do you really like them?”
Wife: “They are really amazing. Everyone in my office likes them, too!”
Me: “I wasn’t quite sure about them. I thought that you would think that they were tacky.”
Wife: “No. Not tacky at all. Tell me more, Joel…and my friends at the office, too.”
My wife’s a tough sell. And she loved the product. So did her office buddies.
