Building a Franchise
Tim Conn believes that consistency and hard work are essential to success. “Though the start may be a bit tedious, you must never stop,” he says.
Conn shows listeners that opting for a franchise business (instead of starting a business from scratch) can put small business owners on a path of accelerated growth. He explains that a franchise takes a successful system and duplicates it. And it’s important to use the existing system, Conn says, or difficulties may arise.
Franchise owners have big decisions to make when it comes to personnel. Conn says, “I tell everyone that the most important thing you can do is use your due diligence and make sure that the people you’re going to work with are people you want to work with. Because you’re not partnering with them, you’re signing a 10-15 year franchise agreement. It’s a lot like a marriage, a relationship where you need to feel 100% confident.”
