but the ones who really excel - our top performers - tend to be Type A individuals who love marketing.
It seems to me that in general, people who do well at business are those that love to interact with others and are extroverts.
A lot of times though, even extroverted people have problems coming up with a business idea and then focusing on it. That seems to be where the franchise concept can really help.
An entrepreneur can spend his/her entire career looking for a business model that works and never hit on anything, or possibly skim across the surface of an idea but never dive into it to really exploit it's potential.
A small business owner can have a hell of a time trying to see the bigger picture when they are stuck in a box that they have created because they don't have the time to do anything else but today's tasks. When that happens, you can't rise above and work on your business, versus working in your business.
I'd love to see one of our forum members get into your franchise and talk about all they experience and learn from the process.
