Sunday at Acceler8Success Cafe is the time for looking back over the past week. It’s a time for review as with so much going on at Acceler8Success Cafe I know it’s easy to miss a newsletter or two. Possibly my Question of the Week slipped by without you noticing, or an announcement I may have made just seemingly got lost amongst the busy news feed.
Just like an experience at your local cafe, I really want Acceler8Success Cafe to be conveniently located when you desire or need to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, and catch up on some reading. My goal is for Acceler8Success Cafe to be your virtual cafe. A place where you may frequently visit to enjoy a few minutes to yourself. I’d like the experience to be memorable by providing learning opportunities, by presenting a different perspective & insight, by spurring thought & reflection, by encouraging interaction, and by spotlighting topics that, frankly, may not be as front and center as they should or need to be.
Acceler8Success Cafe is open for business seven days a week. For the benefit of current & aspiring entrepreneurs, this daily newsletter is delivered each morning. As a way to jumpstart the week ahead, a weekly review is delivered each Sunday morning listing and linking to the articles you might have missed during the previous week. My goal is to provide an opportunity for you to begin the new week informed and with ideas that possibly could accelerate your success.
“America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.” ― Allen Boyd
Culture lives and breathes in all organizations. It must be nurtured – fed and taken care of. If sick, the virus causing the sickness must be addressed.
Having worked with many, many with entrepreneurs exploring franchising as a business growth and expansion strategy, I’m often asked the question, “How does a new franchise company sell franchises without brand recognition?”
Instead of just focusing on investment level, industry segment and competition franchise candidates should know about the difference between legacy and emerging brands and the advantage of one over the other.
Question of the Week: Is it safer to invest in a recognized brand with a proven system as opposed to investing in something new and relatively unknown?
How will transitioning corporate executives or well-educated young professionals (or combination thereof between partners) consider a brand’s franchise opportunity amongst the growing number of franchise opportunities across a multitude of industries and industry segments? How should a brand be best presented in today’s competitive market… in today’s franchise buyer’s market?
What are you passionate about? If you’re not sure or maybe you’re thinking about doing something different in life, think no more and follow Nike’s slogan to, JUST DO IT!
What must be done to make life in America sensible and great again is a focus on kindness, along with care & respect. It’s nothing new as it’s what most of us were brought up to do – be kind to others and show care for others & respect others. It really is a simple formula, but it must start at home, one person, one family, one community at a time… one act of kindness at a time. What we do makes a difference. Let’s all do our part!
Have a great day (and week ahead). Make it happen. Make it count!
