Should I Buy A Franchise?

I generally interview guests who share insights into running a successful business. But I recently met someone who caused me to consider the idea of reaching to another audience as well.

What if you have yet to make the leap into entrepreneurship? What if you are feeling the urge to leave your 9-5 job but need help deciding what type of business to start?

My in this episode of Radio Free Enterprise is, Faizun Kamal of FranNet, is an expert at helping first-time entrepreneurs decide whether purchasing a franchise is the correct course for them to follow.

In spite of the billions of dollars of revenue generated worldwide on an annual basis I have not always been a fan of the franchise model.

But, after learning more about Faizun and the process her company uses to guide novices into the world of business ownership, I felt it was important to share what she had to say with you.

Startup Team Building

Poppir, a tech startup based in the Washington, DC area, is bringing the sharing economy to the commercial real estate industry.

When co-founders Moh Ducis and Derek Nickerson asked me to give a pep talk to their – currently – unpaid team of developers, marketers and biz dev folks as a kick-off to an all-day team building meeting, I wasn’t quite sure what to share.

While I do have experience in startups, it hasn’t been entirely positive. What could I tell these folks that would be entirely honest but which wouldn’t have them running for the exits? The solution I created is heard in this podcast, recorded live in an empty night club in the middle of a Saturday afternoon.

What I shared can be categorized under four Cs:

  1. Communication
  2. Capital
  3. Culture
  4. Career

I’m glad that I recorded the presentation because I believe it was well-received by the people present and may well benefit other founders and team members at current and future startups.
