Are you thinking about starting your own business? Consider buying a franchise if you don't want to build a business from scratch. Franchising is the best business model for many reasons. But, just like any business, it also comes with challenges, especially when you're not getting the proper support from the franchisor.
Now if you're the franchisor, remember that it's your responsibility to support your franchise owners because that can make a big difference in their chances of success. But what if you're unsure how to help them become better business owners? Brad Sugars offers excellent insights and sound advice for both franchisors and franchisees.
Brad is one of the most influential entrepreneurs and a top-notch business coach. He is also a bestselling author, keynote speaker, and host of The Big Success Podcast. As a husband and father of five, Brad is equally passionate about his family as he is about business. That's why he is a strong advocate for building a company that works without you–so you can spend more time doing what really matters to you.
Throughout his 30-year career as an entrepreneur, Brad has become the CEO of several companies and owns the multi-million dollar franchise ActionCOACH®. He created 90 Days To Revolutionize Your Life, a program where you spend 30 minutes a day for 90 days with Brad teaching you his 30 years of experience in investing, business, and life.
In this episode, Erik and Brad talk about a lot of fun stuff about franchising, like why the investor franchisee is better than the owner-operator franchisee, what the top franchisees do and how to become a top franchisee, and why franchisors want him to talk to their franchisees. They also discuss wealth-building and Brad's proven formula for success. There's so much value here that you won't find anywhere else, so stay tuned!
