Define Success

What are your goals?

If you decide to pull the trigger, and actually buy a franchise…become an Owner, what would need to happen for you to consider your business to be a winner…to be a success?

Seriously: What would successlook” like like? What would success “feel” like?

What would make the risk you took worth it?

Can you define success in a personal way?

You should. You should need to write down a few things…very specific things, that you feel will make what you’re thinking of doing-worth it.

After all, no risk-no reward, right?

Quotes On Risk

Charles Duhigg

You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together.”

Earl Nightingale

Annie Dillard

Alan Alda

When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we’re given.”

Would winning in franchising include one of these things?

  • Having more freedom-as opposed to working for someone else
  • Having more control than you would ever have at a regular job
  • Building equity- BizEquity
  • Accomplishing something “big
  • Establishing a legacy for your kids
  • Adding new jobs to your local community
