🎧 How to Become a Franchise Owner with Giuseppe Grammatico | Influencer Networking Secrets 🎤

There are always positives and negatives surrounding franchising, and that’s really at the heart of what I want to get to. But I wanted to start off with a little bit about you and your own words. You know I do the bio when we start the interview, but I always like to these things that the guests knows that I don’t know.

So, let’s start with a little bit about your background. You know you mentioned Wall Street, you mentioned being a franchise owner. How did how did how did what’s the story behind becoming what you are today great Paul thanks for having me, I am really excited. You know. As far as the history goes, I’m a first generation my parents were born in Italy and I’ve always aspired to be a business owner.

My parents owned the restaurant for over 40 years. I had worked in that restaurant and parents always said you know what you need to get a college education. So I pursued my undergrad and eventually my graduate degree worked for some of the larger companies out there, such as UPS and JP Morgan and after experiencing corporate America realizing the industry was great. I learned a lot in financial service.

It just wasn’t the best match. For me, it was, I felt like it was more of a number than that anything else. So, after my you know being in Wall Street learning about investments, I decided to go to business ownership. So I took a look at some existing businesses for sale in my area and I decided also to take a look at franchises and since they had such a great proven system, I didn’t have to kind of recreate the wheel and put some information online and a Bluebird, not a franchise consultant almost 15 years ago, had contacted me and we went through the process took.

I would say about almost a year at most to do my due diligence since I was working going, back-and-forth commuting to New York City and after my due diligence, I decided on a franchise here and it’s been great. It’s been 13 years of business ownership and the part I kind of make everyone laugh about is the day after purchasing the franchise I kind of went back to the consultants said. You know what I really enjoy the process.

How do i? How do I become a franchise consultant and he had a kind of a you know. Excuse me a chuckle and said you know it. We could definitely explore that opportunity down the road, but you know run the business for a while learn about business ownership firsthand, and we can explore that opportunity down the road and sure enough that was in 2007. I purchased. My first of many franchises leads us to today and now a franchise consultant so know took a little you know took, took a while definitely gained a better appreciation of what a consultant does.

But I definitely love what I’m doing and I’m here to help in any way possible. I’m glad you did I’m glad you started off that way. Giuseppe and the reason is, I think, a lot of entrepreneurs. I’ve certainly been guilty of this. I share this with you know, with with my clients and people that I work with, there’s just really no shortcut if you’re going to be in the consulting, if you’re going to be in any kind of thought, leadership position, there’s no shortcut around the hard work that You have to go through to have the expertise in the first place and I think a lot of people really want to skirt that.

Somehow, and and that’s one of the reasons I don’t claim – you know the title of business coach or something like that, because I don’t feel like that’s – that’s really something that I can legitimately say. Oh, I’ve run a business, you know for X amount of years and and that kind of thing, so I’m really glad you put it that way, because it’s a great it’s a great starting point, particularly if we’re going to talk about people who are you know, maybe On the fence about jumping into business ownership, you know, but but so I actually do want to drill on that a little bit, and that is to say, if you knew, if you, if France, I his ownership, was your first experience in business ownership.

What was the, what was it like to to springboard from that into the understanding you have now I mean: how long did it take you to become comfortable as a business owner? That’s a great question, so I helped to manage my my family’s restaurant, so that was so. You had some experiences there with managing people hiring firing dealing with financials so with the the franchise. I was involved in her that a few are I was involved in.

It took a little bit of an adjustment period to you know. Now, I’m investing my own money. This is my. This is my sole income going forward, so there was a few month adjustment of just trying to figure it all out. Luckily I was with a great franchise system, so everything was put in place. It was a newer company, so we were at the time developing new new ways of streamlining the process from billing to taking care of customer.

Maybe that wasn’t fully satisfied. So you know I come from an environment of much larger companies where you’re giving a smaller task. They’re saying, okay: this is what you’re going to do every day, you’re going to sell financial service products to this part of the country, whereas now you’re, you become a jack-of-all-trades, and I took me, I think it took me a little bit longer because I wanted to Be an expert in all areas I wanted to.

You know the accounting I’ve done accounting before this was a little bit different, so I wanted to explore every opportunity. I wanted to go out and work with some of the other franchises since I was a master franchisee. So I got some other franchisees in our territory, so my approach was very hands-on because I wanted to know the business inside out. I think it gave me a better appreciation of the overall business and really helped me to grow the business and to put people in place that could run the other business on a day-to-day mmm-hmm.

So then this goes over over about a period of 12 years. Would you say about maybe halfway through that finally had all settled in and you were just operating like a well-oiled machine, or did it come sooner or later than that it took several years? I don’t remember the exact year where we hired a general manager to take over the business, but for me it wasn’t that the systems were in place. It was more of a trust factor.

You know hiring finding that right person, you know, we’ve had management, asked to find someone that could manage the entire business and not just one part of the business. So it took a few years once we found that that person, that person actually was hired as a sales rep for our company and after speaking with them and knowing his background, had a lot of management, experience and sure enough.

A couple months later, we ended up hiring him as a a general managers to run the the entire business. I was still involved, but I had him dealing with a lot of the day-to-day questions and counting that that comes up. You know I like this just sends me off on a on a complete tangent, but it it’s funny. You should mention that, because recently, on a personal note, I’ve been exploring the concept of manage of stewardship and management versus ownership as part of my spiritual life, and I and I just you know, I really, I really think in view of what I read every day.

I think good managers have got to be harder to find than good owners. Would you would you agree with that as a sort of a rhetorical statement, not altogether true, but you know true a lot of the time good managers so hard to find somebody who doesn’t own the what you what you put them in charge of but handles it Like they do, I agree with that, because you’re looking so with the manager you’re looking for someone to run the day-to-day business, there’s that rust factor, you know, there’s no black and white.

This is just your role. You’re just handling one thing: you’re handling multiple things, and you know I was part of a smaller company that was growing, so you have to learning into that right. It’s not just this is the way it’s going to be every day is, is you’re going to start out here? Have your calendar filled and then end up at point. You know at point Z, will say from A to Z and today: you’ll have your your day plan that and then something will come up, and so you have to kind of adapt and say: okay, I’m going to I’m going to reschedule my day or maybe push My sales meetings to later in the afternoon just to address a customer that has a concern, but, yes, I would agree hundred percent, it’s the management or even stepping back employees.

Finding good quality employees is crucial to your business. There are some very strong franchises out there and, at the end of the day, some some are going to be more involved to help you find those key employees and some are just going to more or less give you a job description that you should use to Find those employees, but the employees, the the management extremely important, not every owner – is going to run the business the same way.

Some well-managed managers, you know more of a semi absentee ownership and some are going to be involved in the day-to-day and just delegate certain tasks to certain people, but extremely difficult to find good quality employees – and you know when you find them hold on to them, make Sure that happy take care of them and so that they stay, and you know at the end of the day you want. You want those employees as you grow, to bring people and just like themselves kind of like a franchise company.

They find a really good franchisee. They wan na they kind of want to in a way, I jokingly, say, clone you and find laws apply themselves yeah, yes, yeah. I want my employees to you, know, attract and bring people just like them, so makes my life a lot easier and just makes for a great overall working environment. Well – and that goes back to the whole – and I I’ve got it the questions gadget we will, but this just brings up a fascinating point.

I’ve had this discussion with a couple of the previous guests, and that is that the friend of mine Ron, Karrueche who’s, a consultant here in the Seattle area, said you know everything you do in your business has to further the vision and the the unique value that You bring to the marketplace and, if you’re not scaling off of that you’re not going to scale, and I think that I think that’s what you’re getting at there.

The franchise is looking to clone themselves because they’ve got a successful starting set of principles, visions, values whatever their and then they look for people who want to replicate that and right down to the lowest level employee. A good manager is going to do the same thing. So great way of putting it absolutely so I’ll get to the next question now now that weird now that we’ve we’ve we’ve tackled your intro and mined it for gold, and it’s been good – it’s been great so far a vague perception I would have my you know.

I think I mentioned to my dad was once in a franchise group. It was in Southern California, it stood up for a little while and then collapsed, and the CEO who was also the the majority owner was a great. I mean just a fantastic salesperson, so he could sit down a business owner or somebody of some degree of means who could invest in a franchise and he could just take a talk him into it. You know he could get them and he could transfer that enthusiasm.

So well that they would say you know this. This looks like the way forward, but it was the Peter Principle. The classic you know the guy should not. The guy should have been in charge of acquiring new accounts. He should not have been in charge of running the company, but he was the majority shareholder. So who was going to stop him now? Would you I mean? I don’t know that you pay attention to this, but would you say there’s a lawful lot of people in your industry kind of like in any other industry, where it’s it’s too much push and make the sale and get to the deal and all that and not Enough thinking it through and actually identifying, is this the right fit? Would you say that’s common in your industry as well? You know, I’m sure you know, as with any industry, you’re going to come across, that you know a lot of people looking to own a franchise.

They get excited, they get excited about a product, so sometimes it’s not even the sales force they’re just sold because they had a sandwich or a slice of pizza at a certain franchise, and that’s that’s the franchise they want. So the way I would answer that is, you know when you’re dealing with people sure I’m sure it happen. But ultimately I think I see from the candidates and people I’ve worked with and just friends and family.

You know throughout the years as people get excited and they invest or purchase a franchise for the wrong reason is okay. I can. I can even take a step a step further. So when you’re Frank choices is I’m an independent consultant with Fran choice, they don’t run since 2000, one of the innovators and what we do. We have 70 consultants total that that work for work with Fran choice, Fran choice. Our back office will actually bet that you know there’s over 3,000 franchise companies and we worked with less than 200 companies out there and why we do that is our franchise.

We’ll take a look and make sure that the companies are stable, that they’re growing, that they have great validation. You know they don’t want fly-by-night companies that just started. You know the put together at the franchise disclosure document in contract two weeks prior times. They definitely like to bet and make sure they’re dealing with some solid companies, and the reason I bring that up is not every franchisee is, is equal right? It’s not it’s not created exactly the same.

So there’s. Definitely some really good things that a lot of the franchise companies have put together, but ultimately, as a investor in a franchise, you want to make sure that fit is a good fit for you. So you are at the end of they. After working with someone like myself, I’m going to put you directly in touch with a franchise company, so you’ll be a with their franchise development person, their VP of franchising, and they will.

It’s almost like, like a two-way street. They’ll they’ll do a little bit of an interview figure out if you’re a good fit for the company, but you’ll also be interviewing that see if it sounds like a good fit. So, there’s a lot of a lot of things that that come into play, and I know I’m jumping around a little bit but kind of it’s the long answer, but it’ll cover all aspects through you, I mean when you work with someone like myself with a franchise Consultant and the reason I work with a consultant is you know we don’t I almost don’t even care about the actual franchise itself.

We kind of put that on the back burner. I want to learn about you. I want to figure out Paul, you know Paul. Are you a you good match for owning a business in general and you’ll say? Well, what do you you know? What do you mean could match them? I’m contacting you about a franchise or a small business and I’ll say well, a lot of people will get into it for the wrong reasons. Moon, you know they they’ll lose their job, they were, they were downsized.

You know the company’s going through a merger which, unfortunately, I’m coming to they’re three community. Last three companies prior being a business owner. I went through a merger, so so they’ll they’ll dive into it thinking the grass is, the grass is greener and I’ll push back a little bit and say the grass isn’t always greener. It’s not a good fit for you, let’s figure out if you’re doing it for the right reason, so we’re having a one to two hour conversations before the any mention of franchise.

More of learning about yourself learning about goals, activities hobbies any anything, you’re interested in figuring at the peace of being a good fit for business ownership, and once we get past that you know a so we’re working together, I can’t work with everyone right if they’re, if They’re not what I mean by that is, if they’re, maybe not the best fit for business ownership, I’ll give them my reasoning.

What we’ll talk it through? Sometimes maybe I misunderstood something, maybe maybe we we had kind of a aha moment as I call it and I’ll stay in touch with them. You know and say you know, maybe things will change, maybe give it a little bit more time. Give it a little bit more thought and maybe we’ll talk in six months to a year, so we have those conversations I’ll do I’ll put together a monthly newsletter that I’ll send out monthly or quarterly so I’ll.

Get that for me and then I’ll hear back from them down the road for the people that I feel are a good fit and we’re in agreeance, and we move forward we’ll sit down in and once again, not look not actually looking at a franchise say like An actual name brand well we’ll sit back and say what are you looking for, so we’ll look at attributes and characteristics which are how many do you want to work seven days a week, if you want to when you wake up in the morning view vision yourself Getting dressed and putting a key in that door and open up a location, maybe in a shopping, mall or office.

Where are you more inclined to stay in your pajamas and and go onto your laptop every day and not have to leave the house so we’ll go through multiple characteristics and only after figuring out those characteristics? I create a fully customized model. You know from my from my experience from our conversations, whet went and I’ll send them their model and say this is your ideal franchise model what it should look like from there? We would make some recommendations, typically to or through franchise recommendations.

I’m going to. We don’t even get into brands or discuss that until or just even you know, we don’t even talk about. Is food the best fit for me or fitness, we’ll figure out that model and really hone in on what you know, what type of business you’re looking at and then we’ll figure out through my research and due diligence? What are those brands that best fit that model? And you know with that being said: the behind the scenes stuff is also let us you know, we may find a brand that fits your model to a tee, but you live in Georgia and the whole state of Georgia is sold out.

So we’ll have to go to plan B and maybe look at another concept. That’s in a similar industry and or mention are you available? Are you open to possibly moving to the next state or the next city, or you know, whatever territory, we’re taking a look at so there’s a lot of back and research that we’re doing to make sure find not only the right fit for you, but also is There, a territory and availability in your market – hmm fascinating.

So so it sounds like to me, on average at least that falling in love with a certain brands, product or service is not the best reason to look at going into franchising, going in well being a franchise owner right, you’re, better off remaining just a happy loyal Customer maybe getting a job with the franchise but not owning it yourself, necessarily well what 100 % thought you know from experience, you’ll see people that maybe they had a specific brand in mind and it just happens to work out.

You know we’re not saying it’s it’ll. Never work, never yeah yeah, but it’s you know tough talking to some under some other people in the industry. It’s one of the biggest pitfalls for failure. You know people will just be so in love with the product, and I said you could be in love with a product, but not after she owned that restaurant or owned that whatever product or service the business is in so yes, I highly recommend you know being Open kind of starting clear, we call it a clean slate in our industry and just keeping an open mind.

I asked that as a favor, that’s one of the first things we talk about and if there is a particular brand that you just love and really want to consider we’ll put that aside and we’ll definitely bring that up and see how it falls into the model. Because it may just be, it may end up being a perfect fit for them, yeah yeah! No, I like that. I mean it’s so um not so long ago. I had this wonderful physical transformation and lost a whole bunch of body, fat and weight, and now I’m on the Saturday I’m competing for the first time in men’s physique and all along a lot of people have told me.

Well, you should start, you know your own training business. You know you should start your own fitness consulting her and I’m like. Oh hell, no, because I already know right III know from just anybody that I meet people I network with people. I talked to that. I am singularly driven the way you know like I mean you cannot keep me out of the gym and you in and you would have to force-feed me food that is not beneficial to you, know, maintaining low body fat and having an excellent physique, and I like To you know, stand there in a pair of shorts and hit these you know poses that.

Make me look like I’m on the cover of a magazine or something, but most people don’t like that stuff and most people, don’t you know hate going to the gym, love eating food that you know packs on the pounds and are extremely self-conscious and don’t want to Be out there on stage, you know wearing almost nothing and that kind of thing, and so I immediately made the connection and said I this is, this is a passion, but if I go out there and try to spread this, be the Evangel for this, and you Know get other people to do it and and and charge them for it.

I’m going to. I just know enough about the industry and enough about the average New Year’s resolution to say no this. This would this would turn me off of fitness if I turned it into a business, so kind of a similar principle, I’m observing there. Yes, I agree I had am just something probably to know about me. A lot of people don’t know about me in college. You know you start, you know, there’s there’s information overload on the internet and you start hearing people saying follow your passion, you know what do you enjoy doing every day? That’s what you should do and I’m not saying never to follow your passion.

But at the time I was at a big article game as a kid and you work with some nut smaller companies out here in the East Coast and did it for about six months and after six months couldn’t couldn’t stand a articlegame and stepping back and and And now I’m knowing what I know now, this is many many moons ago I turned something I enjoyed upon my downtime that I enjoyed to relax or after work or after after college after classes to a job and it kind of just lost it kind of just Lost lost interest completely, and so I I spin it the other way and say find a find, a business that will give you the freedom to do and follow your passions in your hobby.

So if we can find your business that will free up your nights and weekends and allow you to take a week off every month or every quarter so that you can go to travel over so layer games are to spend extra time at the gym. Why not you don’t have to actually own a business? You know in the fitness industry or in the article game industry, so something I’ve learned the hard way, unfortunately, but definite gain a better appreciation overall.

So yeah definitely now that one absolutely I mean that’s that’s pretty much what Arnold Schwarzenegger did while he was becoming the world famous bodybuilder. Was he had a side business that he ran when he wasn’t in the gym so that he could be in the gym and do all of the things that he did? You know he just he didn’t have to worry about how he was going to pay the bills, because he already had a couple of mail-order businesses that could be done piecemeal and for a couple hours a day.

And so you know he before he even became a silver screen superstar. He was already you know a millionaire plus he had all this prestige from winning all these titles, and that was what he enjoyed doing in life and so for me same thing. One question I wanted to run by you you’ve sort of touched on this already, but I thought of a couple of while I was still in the insurance business. I did. The online surveys for a couple of large corporate household names in insurance.

State Farm was one of them and they rejected me has the right kind of candidate, and I don’t know if state, for if those type of insurance agencies qualify as that quite the same as franchise, but it is practically. It certainly strikes me that way. You know you take on their brand and all their branding and logos and corporate practices, and you know you subject yourself to their corporate governance, but even I mean this was this was a guy with you know, four or five years by that time, experience selling insurance And I’d done very well and you know, would regularly field offers of recruitment, or you know people prospecting me over LinkedIn and that kind of thing.

So I looked back at that, though, and I totally agree with State Farm. I would have made a terrible State Farm agent because I’m I’m a rogue, you know I’m Kirill guerrilla marketer. I don’t do stuff according to their. They have I’ve had enough friends who are State Farm agents to know that they’re there box, so to speak, that you have to fit into would had driven me absolutely berserk. So, together with what we’ve already talked about, do you get? Do you get a fair amount of people who fail to consider the limits they’re going to place on themselves? You know subjecting themselves to creative in functional oversight.

Do you think they’ll do a lot of people that you that you end up talking to leave that out or do they generally come in and they they’re aware of it very good question that all a lot of that information comes out in our consultation, which is Typically, the second call, typically, I like to keep them at an hour and a half to two hours really dig deep to find out about them and then in there you make two two determinations number one is: are they business ownership material? In that you know? Are they just not? Are they doing it for the right reasons and number two is franchising, a good fit so obviously franchising.

I don’t really call it an industry in that it’s a it’s almost, you know jokingly I’ll, say a business in a box. It’s a business that it’s a structure of the system. That’s been proven and created for you, so I tell everyone: if business ownership is the right fit and you want to be in the cleaning business, you can own your start, your own cleaning business or purchase a cleaning franchise. You know so when I ask them, are they if we take a look at a specific franchise and I’ll say these are the services the franchise has to offer you? Okay with that and I’ve had people say, that’s great, that’s I don’t want to do anything more than that and then I’ll have other people say well, I want to branch off and do you know wearing cleaning, but I also since we’re at the office complex.

I also want to do oil changes and detail cars, and and and just things that are just complete outside of what the franchise has to offer. So when people want to add and have a lot of that additional flexibility and be able to offer additional services at any point in time, I may step back and say you know as a franchisee, you need to follow that their system and and sell the product Or sir, is that the franchise has created that you had it messed it in.

If you aren’t planning on doing all these other extra things, maybe we should look outside of franchising and I have a good friend of mine who could be able to help them out outside of the franchising industry. So mmm franchising, isn’t you know we may find that model or the put together that franchise model of franchising may not always be the best fit and you’ll get a lot of that just from what they’re looking for you know another way to approach, it is, if You want it to offer additional services you may want to look into if you have the capital, maybe two different franchises.

One is a mobile service that maybe services your car, the oil changes and detail, I’m just making this up, showing them your second business. Maybe commercial cleaning so that’s also an option, but I I want to be clear that if you’re investing in a commercial cleaning franchise you’re going to be filing that product or service, there’s not much more you’re going to be adding. So some people love the structure in that they can focus on.

You know the four or five revenue streams or versus worrying about how many more to add and some people just want to keep it open and just say I want to sell food. I want to clean, I want to offer tax services, they want to do it all then I’ll, just kind of step back and say: maybe franchise membership may not be the right fit for you. Yeah no yeah and made me think of it used to drive me crazy Liberty, Mutual.

When I worked there, they had their corporate marketing department, you know and everything is sanitized and branded and you can either fit the box. You can’t well. I couldn’t and the funny thing was you know they. I couldn’t get cooperation from their marketing department. It wasn’t that they were telling me. I couldn’t go out and market the way I was marketing. They just told me: you can’t get our branded materials and are in the kind of support you’re looking for in order to do it the way you think it should be done right and I think there’s there’s some degree of shortsightedness to that.

But at the same time you know made it is their company and they’re certainly at liberty to do that and and say you know, you know this is how we’re going to do it, and this is what we believe the marketplace wants and we’re not going to, And we’re going to limit that, and so I think I just think that you know that’s one important thing to consider. What would you tell somebody, though who’s listening to this thinking? Okay? Well, maybe maybe I should start looking into a franchise.

What’s the? What do you recommend people do as preliminary research, maybe even before getting on the phone with you? I do yeah that’s an excellent question so before even speaking with me, because you know – and we can we’ll talk about this in a little bit – but you don’t have to go through a franchise consultant, you can contact the franchise company there right, we’re there and instead Of looking at, as I mentioned, the product or service, so I want to get into the food about money and get into you know.

Tax services, like you just mentioned, do love us a little bit of soul-searching figure out number one. If you can see yourself as a business owner, talk to other business owners, franchise and non franchisee, if you have a friend that maybe owns a specific franchise and have them, you know shadow that would be step number one see if they can see themselves doing the Exact same thing, and it doesn’t matter the actual business, it’s just seeing what that owner does on a day to day basis, buy them dinner, buy them lunch of drinks and shadow them for a day or two a week, and then, once you establish business, ownership sounds Like it may be a good fit figure out what you want that business to look like, and you know, don’t don’t try to figure out what I’m going to make the most money at just figure out.

Okay, these are these are certain things I like. So I always start off with money aside, we’ll just we’ll figure out do I do I want to go to a physical location everyday, or do I want to work at home off a laptop that alone will narrow down your your your search over offer for a Franchise you’re out, as I mentioned before the attributes, do I want to deal with a lot of minimum wage employees and seven days a week, and you know where my business is constantly open and food costs and things like that rising.

You know kind of you see. Food costs go up, it’s kind of like the stock market, they’re going up in demo, and you know when I tell people, does that sound of interest to you and they say no and I said well, I basically just described the restaurant industry, yes and right away. They’re, like that’s a very, very good point and I leave in a Lehman I’ll, even ask them and say: well, you know what is it about a restaurant that you that you enjoy and they’ll say well, there’s a line out the door they have to be killing It and I said well so you’re, basically looking for a product or service and high demand, so we kind of step back and figure out what that line means because if you know there’s certain franchises that will sell their product at cost just to bring people in The door hope it hopefully up selling them a new product or services naming any names, but so so going back figure out if business ownership is right, figuring out what your day looks like you know what you, what you anticipate doing, that they basis if you’re, you Know you can run a franchise and have a manager run it, and if you just love sales, and that’s all you want to do you take over the sales role, you can just show up once a week for an hour and make sure everything is getting done And manage managers, so that’s the part you should really figure out and it doesn’t hurt to go a franchise Expo or a show or go online.

But it’s information overload. I I always say knowledge is not power. It’s it’s applied, applied knowledge. It is truly power and what you do with that knowledge, so mister got your hands on a copy of my book before I released it, because that’s what I said wide knowledge is everything man, knowledge information is cheap, yes, no, and – and if you talk to I Used to work with a business coach and he said believe it or not, he goes.

I don’t know if you know this, but 99 % of the stuff we’re going over is free online. You can access it right now, and I said you know why the heck am I working with you then, and he said well, because that 1 % that’s not available is me actually helping. You apply it and holding you accountable to make sure you’re actually following it. What a sales pitch I go! That’s uh! You definitely sold me on that.

So, needless to say, I had signed up with him and we worked together for a while, so but yeah it’s that there’s no right or wrong. I, as a franchise consultant, can help you get through that process. Maybe a little bit quicker, we’ll figure out the business ownership aspect. We figure out those attributes we’ll take it one step further and say through frame that will narrow them the number of franchise.

We should look at because many of them don’t meet our our criteria. Many of them are brand new or they’re, not growing, or a lot of their lot of their franchise owners are going out of business, so frame choice will bet and help with the process, and I didn’t I didn’t tell you the best part, but the best part Is our services or 100 % free there’s, never a contract, there’s never a fee for our services, and you know many people say well yeah.

You do this because you love it. I mean. How do you get compensated? I absolutely love it. I’ve been successful in my last franchisee ventures and business owning multiple businesses. We do we do get compensated, but that compensation is like a real estate agent or a headhunter where we’re paid by the franchise company themselves so bright, red new after the after the agreement has been reached and all the betting has been done and the due diligence Has been has been covered yep, that’s it just a bit, so there there’s no there’s no sales, there’s no pressure.

If you decide to to invest in a franchise great in many cases, it’s just not a good fit in other cases. It may not be the right time and we’ll stay in touch. You know, are any general questions you have. I apply, you know I’ve worked. I basically apply all my work experience, so I have the experience of being a franchisee and franchisor. I’ve been on both sides. I’ve worked for corporate America, I’ve been downsized, you know through a three mergers.

The last three companies that work I’ve worked with I’ve had the two-hour commute on the train and two into New York City, and it just one day. I said enough is enough. I am getting back in to believe it or not. People think I make this up and it’s the god-honest truth February. 2Nd of O 7 is when we, when I decided I’m going to sign that that contract directly with the franchise company and I’m going to move forward as a business owner and three days later, we found that my my wife was expecting.

So we had 10 years. Look, it was, I guess, the the definitely some great motivation and I’m not saying everyone should go out and do that right. It just happened to one way for it to happen. That’s so that’ll put some fire under your under your under your seat. There were small, multiple fires. Yes, absolutely so you know I’m here to help I I was part of a newer franchise, so there was pros and cons where there were certain things being developed, which I choose nice, because I got to give a little bit of feedback and some areas took a Little bit longer to grow them and that’s fine as well.

You take you, take the pros, there’s some pros and cons, but I learned a lot ie from my experience. I can definitely add value. I can definitely narrow that in your search and hopefully speed up your search so that if we rule out business ownership, you didn’t waste years and years of calls and and going to franchise discovery days and possibly going out of business to help you out and we As I mentioned, there’s never a cost for the service, and not only do we assist with the figuring out of everything we just discuss on the call, but I will also make a recommendation.

You have a few partners that could help with funding, because many people that will call us will say I have you know 50,000 or 100,000 Bank, and I said well, you know what else do you have to invest and they said well, you know that’s all. I have I just have the money to bank to find out, they may have a million dollars in a 401k, and our investment partners will take a full up. They take a holistic look, they take a look at just about everything and figure out.

Okay, well not sure if you realize that, but you can use your 401k or retirement assets for your first business or for any business and use that to purchase the franchise. Startup cost next off the salary without any type of any type of penalty. And coming from the investment world, I always told people or was taught never use your retirement assets they’re going to want to wait and use those. You know it use that for retirement only and over the years I said okay.

Well, that makes sense, but as a franchisor business owner, you know this is a much more active investment. I’m going to be actively managing my future and maybe taking a hundred thousand out of a 401k that was in a mutual fund, which is, let’s face it. Passive investment – it’s just sitting there and you’re hoping to make your whatever you’re making as far as returns sure. But why not? You know when I grab some ownership and say I’m going to take this $ 100,000 and I’m just using a number as an example and apply that to myself myself invested in myself in a business that I have full control over and not have to wait too.

Read about what the holdings did on CNBC or whatever, whatever station you’re reading, so it’s taking control, I’m not, and I’m not advising everyone to use their retirement assets, but where it’s not dim yeah, we could definitely give you some additional options as to how to actually Invest in the franchise or maybe keep your job for the first year, while you know managing someone, that’s running your business for the first year, while you transition out of you’re out of your job, so we’re able to bring some really good people to the table to Help out and basically give you all the options available to you, mmm mmm, that’s good.

The last thing I wanted to cover here, Giuseppe is: have you got a story, maybe more than one that you could share real briefly. If somebody you’ve come into contact with who’ve, you know, they’ve got some painful lessons. They’ve had to read, had to learn as a result of not consulting with you or somebody like you with Fran choice or any other franchise consultant before getting into it. To you. Have you met people and have you you know collected any short stories like that, then maybe you could share one or two of them just to give people sort of an illustration of the the painful lessons they’ve had to learn right.

So some of you know – and these are more shorter lessons but number one a lot – a lot of people don’t know that franchise consultants exists myself included. When I, when I was first looking at franchising, I actually fill out a form online. They didn’t understand exactly what the company did and I was was put in touch with a local company and that’s how I started speaking with a consultant and then sure enough, you know, became a franchise consultant.

So what I’ve seen what I’ve seen in the past? And this is through some family who’s for this specifically with with family, is they have fallen in love with a concept and they went full full steam ahead? You know went to the bank first and was reading the figuring out loans and things like that to find out the territory was completely unavailable and in another case the franchise was not available period.

They were just not registered in a particular state. So you know one thing that I do is: I am NOT going to show you a franchise that is not available in your territory or that may not be I mean I’m in New Jersey. We cover the whole country and there’s one brand that I truly love and we they’re not available in my home state. A friend of mine was asking about it and then just said you know we do all that that diligence for you so those there there.

Luckily, they’re not, I wouldn’t call them stories where they have lost lots of money. It was just more of they, they got their hopes up in disappointment and there are some friends of mine also that have went directly with this. This is another thing that came up. They went directly with a franchise company, they called them direct and purchased the rack, and I asked well, why didn’t you utilize the services of a consultant and they said? Well, you know I didn’t wan na, you know I figured it would cost more and, and that union said going back to our fees.

If we don’t charge any fees, the franchisor who pays us, they are not going to charge you more or less. When you bite the right, we’ll do that, so the the process is definitely, you know involving there. There’s a lot of work involved a lot of time saved by going through a consultant, but we will do all that back end research for you and to take it a step further. I am speaking directly with the contact.

It can be the owner. Typically, it’s the VP, some a VP of franchise development and that’s the exact person I’m going to put my candidate touch with so before the candidate. Has that intro call don’t know everything about I’ll, create a I’ll send them over a questionnaire that the candidate has the left for us, which covers likes dislikes financials, and things like that, and I always tell the candidate and send information over I’m going to send over That exact franchise model to them and say, I think, they’re a good fit.

This was there, and these are the reasons so they’ll have a full picture of them and on occasion the franchise company will say this. This may be a red flag or you know I think, they’re a really good fit and we talk it out and if we feel like it’s a good fit, I let the candidate know if they’re, okay with it, I send over the information directly to the franchise Company and they get a call within 24 to 48 hours.

Hmm football and they’ll get a a franchise disclosure action document, which is the actual franchise agreement directly sent to them. So the ball is rolling immediately. They already know a lot about the candidate. You know the the other, I would say this is not their experience, but a UH. Just a general pitfall is the candidate that the first time business owner just say, that’s looking to buy a franchise, they don’t they don’t know what questions to ask um.

What are you asking? Well, what kind of money can I make or what’s the royalty that that’s great, they can answer that, but what about setup and and how many employees you need, and you know the marketing spend there and all that kind of information they won’t. They won’t know what questions they’ll be given a lot of that information and the franchise disclosure document. But if you don’t know, if you’re not asking the right questions you’re going to make, I guess an uninformed decision or misinformed whatever you want to go you just you.

Don’t have the right amount of information to make that to make that decision. So I see that as a common theme. So I tell everyone you have nothing to lose, but maybe some time that you, you know maybe a few hours on the phone after the the first and second call but we’re here to help – and you know when I speak directly with the franchise company. Your name is going right on top of the list. They know you’ve been qualified, they know you sound like a good match.

They’re excited, you know, they’re excited to speak with. They want people that have been qualified, both as a good fit financially and they want to speak with. That. First is maybe a few hundred leads they may randomly receive through their website. Oh someone, Fran choice leads someone like myself. Sending over lead is going to be fully qualified. You know, we think they’re a great match and it just makes the process so much yeah yeah.

No, I agree I mean I I would rather have that one person who fits like a glove then a hundred names and phone numbers of people – I’m not you, know, know nothing about them. That’s that’s a ton, more work and yeah. You might get something out of it. You might strike a strike build in there, but I’d rather just get to that one person who fits the bill because that’s where that’s where the money is right, that’s where you get the eventually is the franchise or you know, you’ve got the right person who’s going To be is likely is to be successful, running that business and so that in the long term, that’s income that you don’t really have to work for all that much.

You know the way I perceive it anyway: you’re just you’re collecting those franchise, royalties and fees, and and that’s it yeah. Well, Giuseppe. This has been a wonderful conversation, I’m looking forward to seeing the audience reaction to this and and I’m looking forward to getting this into their hands it’s into there in front of their eyes and in their ears. It’s been great having you on the show.

If people want to know more about you or get in contact with you or learn about what you do with Fran choice, where should we send them? You can contact me directly. Nine. Oh, eight, eight, seven, three, six one, three, four! You can call or an airline people eat the tips nowadays, so you can call or text that number the email address is G gramatica. So I’ll spell it so long when it’s G G RA mm a TI, co @ Fran choice, so f, ra, n and the word choice.

This article is about how to make $ 1,500 to $ 2,500 within the next 90 days, starting from scratch be sure to read all the way to the end. There’s a section there, a list of businesses to help you get started hey. This is Glendon Cameron. Founder of hustlers come food.Com, be sure to get your free nineteen business courses first link below recently, we’ve had a win. Someone went through the child support course and got his child support case dismissed pretty cool stuff.

You can learn how to fix your credit, and you can learn how to get your child support case. Dismissed all for free, first link below be sure to get on it. Let’s have a chat. You want to start a business. You want to start an online business. You looking to make some money right, but there’s a few problems.

You want to make money online, but you’re hearing a lot of stuff. We’ve tried a lot of things and based upon your own experiences, it’s been slow. A few wins here, a few losses here. Typically, it takes 2 to 5 years to build a business online. However, I got something a little different for you. You can build a business offline, wait a minute just hold up hold up hold up. I know you, your front. A lot of stuff just hold on a second: you can build a business offline within 90 days, make 1,500 to 2,500 dollars.

If you are hustling now, I know doesn’t sound like a lot of money, but typically with my consulting business and talking to people the biggest problem that most entrepreneurs have is: how can they make money to support themselves while they build their business? Well, here’s an answer for you create a service based business. While you build your online business now for some people that seems like I don’t want to do that.

I want to be like you Glen and I want to have digital, be a digital citizen. Have my online business I’m not trying to work a job or start some hustle? I just wan na go straight online. Okay, that’s going to cost you either a bunch of time or a bunch of money. Do you have that? That’s the reality, you’re going to spend a bunch of money a bunch of time and if you don’t have either one you’ve got to work with what you have to work with, and that’s the reason I’m talking to you like this.

The last three weeks I have talked to a few hundred of you. Yes, a few hundred of you and 90 % of you are in that I want to do some. I don’t know what I’m going to do and I really have no problem talking to you, but I’m not going to be your girlfriend on the phone to talk about your dreams and ambitions when you ain’t doing shit with your life, that’s where a lot of people Are that’s why I’m you’re being the brother? You never had telling you this stuff because you can want until the cows come home you can want.

You can hope you can wish, and it’s just not going to happen Playboy until you actually start to make it happen. Now 10 % of the people call me actually have businesses or doing something and they’re a little stuck, but essentially everyone has the same problem. I got to put food on the table, but I want to do this business. How do I do both and that’s something I thought about number one, going back to 30 days to 2,500, the people really rocked out has sales experience and the whole time there was.

So what we’re going to do is more on that later, we’ll talk about that. Just stay tuned: let’s talk about what you need to do number one. You got to pick something you got to pick something to do. You have to pick something to focus on now. I get a lot of people and this is where I get the pushback. Well, I don’t want to do that. Well, until you get the skills to do what you want to do, you got to work with what you have and that’s the reality of it and you sitting there not wanting to do something, hopefully wasting you’ll think you’re wasting time.

Your really recent time, because time is ticking, that clock is ticking all right. So that’s our little chat. Let’s get into the educational aspect of this. Why do you want to create a local business when you’re hearing all this stuff about making money online speed? Like I said toward the end of the article there’s 10, I think there’s 13 to 15 business models, things you can pick, and maybe you won’t want to do one of those, but at least they give you some information to stretch your imagination, where you can think Of something that you want to do, because this is the thing this is where we are, unemployment is much higher than people are telling you way higher.

There are certain segments of the population with unemployment, 50 % and that’s on both ends of the spectrum. People under 25 and people over 55 that’s a lot of people. You need to start the business now. This is the plan. This is what I have for you number one to make 1500 to 2500 dollars in the next 90 days. You’ve got to give a service based business. This is something that if you have legs hands a car, you can do grunt work.

You can get this business started, that’s not the hard part, and this is where many people start to stumble and fall. They go out. They hustle they get some jobs, they start making some money, then either they’re working or they’re, not working or they’re, chasing business or they’re doing business and there’s all of these gaps. It’s like feast or famine. It’s like hey we’re, making money we’re doing this stuff in the lull period.

Now. One of the reasons that these low periods occur is because of a lack of professional sales training. So you pick something that you can get reoccurring revenue. That’s first thing you do like. I said I’ve got to list the stuff toward the end of the article. Then you go out there and you execute now. This is the difference between you and other people. Somebody out there right now who’s, not reading.

This article is executing they’re building one of these service based businesses and they’re, getting money but they’re going to type out because they don’t know how to build a system and infrastructure, and that is probably one of the most valuable things you can do for your business. It’s incredible what they can do for your business. Now you hear a lot of stuff of everybody wants passive income.

I don’t do anything. I just sit back and collect the money, everybody that I’m going to group with that’s doing it. That’s a seven-figure earner or a figure earner they’re working their asses off every last one of them every last. One of them is working their asses off. They may not be doing a hundred hours a week but they’re putting in the good 40 to 60. They are working this passive income thing mmm, it happens, I have it, I’ve had it, but I’m telling you it’s very short-term and the market can change on you in a heartbeat.

So if that’s your only source of income – and it goes in the world – I hurt so let’s just let that go for now go ahead and get yourself some active weekly income, that’s meaning you’re, making money. Every week I don’t care from the beginning. It’s only 100 bucks. You can build from that and then once you get to 1500 2500 3000, then you can start pushing your internet business model. But the thing is you got to keep doing your service based business, while you’re doing your internet business model.

Now I’ve said this before so this several times, I’m going to say it again. When I shut down the upscale garage, sell through the illness and went into becoming an internet marketer, I wasn’t sleeping on the sofa my car was paid off. I had money in the bank, I was able enough money live off of two years. Why? I did this? My situation is atypical and there are many people’s like that. Guy looks like me, he did it.

I can do it, but you don’t know the details and I keep trying to tell people I keep laying out, but many of you are hoping for rain bolsters are going to come out of a unicorns ass and bless you with some magic jelly beans. It’s not going to happen. Many of you are trying to fuck with no pussy you’re lying. Many of you are trying to fuck with no pussy you’re lying. Many of you are trying to fuck with no pussy you’re lying.

Many of you are trying to fuck with no pussy your life, but there’s no pussy and you’re wondering why you’re frustrated you have got to do something. You got to start building something and get busy and stay busy. Now. The next step is once you go ahead and get your business going up, then you have to scale it and you have to automate as many parts of it as possible. Now there’s someone that’s going to come in the comments.

It’s like tell us what kind of business once again: there’s 13 business models or 14 or 15 at the end of the article. It is up to you to go through them and to do the research. Like I said in the beginning, the article I have 19 free business courses for you, you you got, the information you’ve got structured courses is once again it’s on you to get busy now. This is something else I’m going to talk about, and this is a big problem.

Many people want someone else to do the work for them. You want someone to hold your hand now, as a business owner, that’s not going to work. You are going to have to be self governed and you’re going to have to start to scale your business you’re going to start pushing your business now. The third component of filling a service-based business customer service and back office. Now these are the two parts where things just really start to go crazy.

Like I’ll tell you something I’ll share something with you since we’re like friends and everything, hustlers kung, fu calm is free right now for a reason for me to gain static data that I would not gain any other way and I’m getting a lot of it. This is what’s happening, people are coming in and they’re looking at what the new stuff that I’m doing, they’re completely ignoring the older stuff. Now I just told you, someone went through the south support course and got its case dismissed now.

What does that mean? It works, but the information only works. If you work, it is a hundred percent free and you still have people looking for shortcuts. I’m not going to hold your dick dry dick, Danny mm-hmm, no, no! No! No! No! So it’s going to be up for you to go and shake it. Part of the problem here is, and I’m an internet guy, so I’m in this community that there are many of you who actually believe that you can actually go from nothing to a lot of money with little to minimum effort.

I’m here right now to slay that myth it doesn’t happen if it happens, is a typical and it’s not the norm, and you need to let it go and prepare yourself to work. If you do the work, you will be successful if you keep dilly-dally and waiting around coming up with these excuses. The next two years are going to pass next. Four years are going to pass. The next SiC here is going to pass. The next decade is going to pass and you’re going to be in the same place that you are right now now who’s going to be mad, who’s going who’s going to be mad, then who’s going to be mad, so go ahead.

Read the article get to the end. Look at that stuff check it out and start setting yourself some goals, because when I did the first 30 days to 2,500, it was a dude by the name of cleaver, and this is advice that I gave two and a half years ago, cleaver was like I’m On my friends, sofa, I don’t have a car, I don’t have money and I say you need to start a surface business and I’ve been trying to steer people to this.

But it’s like nothing. I want to do anything, but I want to live the dream chest during the same time. Few people can do it most can so. The same advice that I gave cleaver and he’s around he’s in the group is you need to start some kind of service based business, so you can start generating some cash cleaver within the matter of three weeks, went from nothing to. I think twenty two hundred dollars cash and he was on foot on foot – ended up buying the house that he was staying in with friends.

He did this in like six months. That’s the power of a service-based business. There. Some people took the original 30 days to 2500 and they’ll. Remember that same advice I gave two and a half years ago, I’m giving it to you right now, and this is your path out of poverty. This is your path away from this bullshit you’re dealing with now. Let’s have another conversation here. You got a job you’re going to have to work, double-time you’re, going to have to keep your job and then you’re going to have to work just as hard.

If not it’s hard on your business until it becomes costly for you to keep your job and at some point it’s going to become costly and that’s the point. You quit your job, because there are many people who want to just quit right now and they have no infrastructure. Nothing set up. So that’s it. So that’s how you make 1,500 to 2,500 dollars from scratch in the next 90 days by starting a service based business and busting your ass.

So for those of you who are still here who are not offended left the room but, like I said, I’m going to just give you a quick breakdown of some business models that you can use to jog your imagination, to give you some ideals and read that Section take notes and just push yourself to think of some – that you can do to get some service business based income. So with that, let’s get down to the examples.

Okay, this is the list of service businesses that I curated for you and the reason I say curated is all of these. Businesses have a serious component of reoccurring revenue. There are way more service type businesses that you can start, but they don’t all have reoccurring revenue. So check it out, you could do mobile spa services now with there’s a certain legal component to this, so if you’re already a massage therapist or in school.

This is something that you can do on your own. If you learn how to sell and book clients and get them on a monthly service, you can kill it, you could totally kill it now. Another service business that is tried, tested and true car-washing Mobile Detailing you have a spy posted up next to another business. This is tried and true it’s been going on forever, because if you have someone who is really busy and they have a luxury car and they have the income, it is cheaper for them to have you wash their car once a week twice above then for them To spend an hour and a half out there detail detailing it within their free time, because what people are buying is their their bonding time, they’re buying freedom.

So if you work 60 hours a week, last thing you want to do is wash your car on the weekend big big service, big opportunity. I have a friend who owns a car, wash he’s been in business many years. He does one point for the 1.6 million a year gross revenue washing cars, yes washing cars. Another thing you can do is referral service. Whenever you you move or sometimes you will get this pack of coupons in the mail.

That’s a referral service. There’s several different ways to do it, but the thing is there, you reoccurring revenue component, you go ahead. You start the referral service. You learn how to sell. You learn how to go out there and make things happen. Then you get reoccurring, customers, you know. If the customer gets a good result, you sign them up and then you’ve got ten people who are paying you them off.

You got 20 people we’re paying your muff. You got 30 people paying your month, it’s pretty pretty sweet. Another tried and true apartment cleaning. You go ahead and get yourself a few apartments every month, you’re working and the thing is to have that reoccurring, revenue to get to know the industry to get to know how often apartments have churned. That’s when people move in and move out once again a very lucrative business if you get into it right and you set it up right next thing is residential cleaning.

There are people, I have friends, who’ve had cleaners for the last 20 years. They do not clean their own house, they may do some light stuff or, but they all. This is for some people a necessity. It is not a add-on, it’s a necessity. So this is a great service business that you can create recurring revenue. Another one came out there copywriting. This is, for you know, people such as myself, who have to write a lot of sales copy who have to write a log blog post.

If you are really good with words, there’s a ton of business out there for you. So that’s another reoccurring, revenue model event planning now, there’s so many ways you can do this, you can specialize, you can shotgun or you can do you can do a mixture. You can take this referral service right and then bring it with the event planning. So what you would do is go out to 10 15 20 businesses and say: look I’m going to throw an event, I’m going to advertise the event and then you can come in and talk about your business.

There are people doing it on the high level, where it’s twenty five thousand dollars to attend. One of these events, so definitely just going to take a great deal of planning and execution and getting out there, but I’m just letting you know this is another reoccurring revenue service based model, I’m a service business model. Yes, a service business model and it’s just kind of crazy, as I said here and tell you this, because there are people who are doing this.

Every quarter they’re putting together these dinners with ten people at twenty fifteen grand a pop and they’re just introducing high influence people to high influence people and getting paid for it. So just something you think about and another thing window-cleaning, very, very profitable business. If you set it up right, if you put it together and once again it has that reoccurring, revenue component sales training as someone who has gone through professional sales, training and who’s gone through a great deal of self-education, I cannot tell you how helpful sales training is And part of sales training is marketing.

Part of sales training is developing your customer relationship management protocols. Super super important, and anyone that gets into a good sales training program will see an immediate increase in revenues. That’s how important it is. That’s why they’ll Carnegie has been around forever because there’s always a need, because most people do not know how to sell and lawn care once again service based business reoccurring revenue.

My long guy is two hundred bucks a month. Year-Round that’s the deal they do the leaves they do all this stuff and they just come three or four times a month and that I’m just speaking as a client of one that, if you’re busy – and you know, if you like doing your lawn and cutting your Trees and trimming the hedges, if that’s a form of therapy and peace for you, I get that. But if you hate that stuff there’s a ton of people out there who hate it don’t want to do it, don’t have the time and paying someone is just freeing them up.

So that’s another thing: now this one gets very broad hair care service. There’s a lot of sub components here, there’s coloring that people will just do colorist their stylist, there’s folks, who just do haircuts, I mean one again: people have to have their hair done once a month every six weeks, two weeks, something so depending upon where you are In that spectrum, because a lot of this stuff, you have to have a license, some of it, you don’t I don’t know – I don’t know but before you do anything, make sure that you go ahead and look at your laws and what you have to do to Be able to put your hands and someone’s head, but once again, once you get your qualifications and your certificates, whatever you need, this is a killer, reoccurring, business model.

I had a friend, he was dating this girl and he was just like man. She always has funny. Always has money, that’s like. So what’s your problem, it’s like man. She has a lot of money and it’s like he said. I don’t understand it’s like you know, she’s, a hair, stylist right, that’s, okay! They make good money, he said. No, you don’t understand. Didn’t kind of find out, she didn’t tell him, but I actually told him it’s like she owns the salon.

He didn’t know that he was blown away about how much money she makes. But you know she worked really really hard, but there’s a ton of money in that type of profession. Another service based business is handyman now in this economy. In the way the world is a lot of people not getting married. So you have a lot of people. Male and female, who are not handy and they will pay someone to come, hang a picture and they will pay someone to come do stuff.

They could do themselves, but once again people are buying back their time. So, instead of spending a week in painting they hire you, they go to the Hamptons come back, the walls are painted, handyman service, properly, positioned, properly set up can be very, very profitable and there’s so many different things that you can do now. Is this any stretch of the imagination all of the service businesses know what I did once again going back to curation is I put together businesses that have a reoccurring revenue model because a reoccurring revenue model is so important and if you hold on for a minute In the next segment, I will explain to you exactly why and how you can take advantage of that.

You hey, this is Glendon Cameron, founder of hustlers kung-fu comm, I’m going to tell you about how to sell big premium sales training. One of the things that happened when I built out 30 days to $ 2,500 per month was some people crushed it, but other people yeah they didn’t do so well, and I was just wondering why I mean it really really messed with me. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. The people who did well had sales training, the people who did not do well had no sales training.

That was the difference and it’s critical. So, if that in mind, I’ve designed a new program bringing themselves training, what we’re going to do together to make you successful is at first is a one-on-one business evaluation. Now, what does that mean? You have a business and I’m going to tear it apart and tell you everything, that’s wrong with it and how you can make it better by implementing a sales process.

Now I know it sounds like I’m being somewhat presumptuous to assume that you don’t have a sales process, but I’ve talked to a number of people who don’t it’s common. I’m in a Facebook group with people who sell everything from high-end airplanes to life insurance, and I went in one mere hours after joining and impacted and put in some stuff that these sales professionals did not know did not understand, and these people sell every day.

Good sales training is the difference between $ 100,000 a year in $ 1,000,000 a year. That’s that critical. So another thing that we’re going to talk about which no one else talks about is how to build out your CRM, which is customer relationship management software. Most people who have a business, don’t have it. It is critical. It will make the difference in your business. That will blow your mind, we’ll teach you how to develop a sales pitch.

Many people don’t have one, because what I liked it, what I hear from folks is I hand out my flyer, I hand them my business card. Your flyer and your business card are not going to sell anything unless that person has an immediate need for your product or service. At that moment, if that need for your product or service comes up six months later chances are, you will not get that business? You have to learn how to pitch.

You’ll have to learn how to qualify. You’ll have to learn how to set it up, and you have to learn how to follow up. All of that goes back to CRM brand. Your business simple, create a sales funnel. That’s why you need CRM, build a web page that converts there’s something that I’ve been doing with some of our clients. That’s been working, amazing and you’ll. Get that how the market, how to find customers manage your back-office, a community of business owners.

Now this is how it works. It’s two hundred and fifty dollars a month. Currently, it is grouped training once we you sign up we’ll set a time where I’ll do a business evaluation with you and your business, then from that point on you’re going to get group training, there will be webinars, a lot of things would be recorded and it’s All going to be in a Facebook group, so you can access it at anytime anywhere.

If you can get on Facebook, you can get in that way. If you lose your login, you don’t have to worry about keeping up with that stuff and it’ll all be in one central location. Super easy super convenient and you can get this information that will change your life change, your business. So simply weekly sales training will be happening in the group and what I’m going to do for everyone that signs up, because there’s a special cold here and you don’t get that code.

Unless you read the end of the article there’s a special code, everyone that comes in here will get to business evaluations. The normal deal is just one so we’re going to have your main, a business evaluation, and probably a month later, we’re going to have another one. So you’ll get that as a signup bonus, but you can only get it from this link. That’s attached to this article, so nowhere with the link B you’re going to have a little screen that will pop out.

That will be your annotation or, if you don’t see the link, there’s going to be a little. I take your finger and go to MS. It currently is, at the top right hand, corner just press your finger in that space and I’ll pop up pop down, and you can check it out. You’ll be added to the facebook group within 24 hours, except on weekends. Maybe longer then my assistant will reach out to you, get your name your number and we will set up a time to do your one-on-one business evaluation and there will be sales training and a lot of stuff that you’ve never seen anywhere else before in the group.

I just posted the breakdown of a 1.2 million dollar lunch. How much money was spent on Facebook ads the the whole program? That’s currently in the group that you can go back, reverse-engineer pull out stuff that you can use for your business or you could just try to use that whole done. That platform, that whole sequence use that sequence. If enough place, if it’s applicable to your business and there’s going to be a lot more of that stuff, that’s coming, and I shall tell you you want to get in now, because it is currently 250.

As I make the group more valuable and I’m going to talk about value, if I can get some of the people that I want lined up to come in and talk to you, it’s going to go up, because these are has some high profile people. But as I make it valuable more useful to you, because currently the way that it is, if you just came in for a month and learned how to build out your CRM, develop a sales pitch and create a sales funnel, you would use those skill sets.

For years, those skill sets can be worth not a hundred dollars to you, not a thousand dollars to you, but literally over time, hundreds of thousands of dollars, hundreds of thousands of dollars and they’re this. I know that you being smarter than the average bear you’re going to jump all over this, and I will see you in the group. You you
