Franchising is a carnival

April 23, 2011

A sideshow.

Life is a Carnival, The Band on Saturday Night Live in 1976

You can walk on the water, drown in the sand
You can fly off a mountaintop if anybody can
Run away, run away–it’s the restless age
Look away, look away–you can turn the page

Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch real cheap
Here on the street
I got six on each arm and two more round my feet
Life is a carnival–believe it or not
Life is a carnival–two bits a shot

Saw a man with the jinx in the third degree
From trying to deal with people–people you can’t see
Take away, take away, this house of mirrors
Give away, give away, all the souvenirs

We’re all in the same boat ready to float off the edge of the world
The flat old world
The street is a sideshow from the peddler to the corner girl

Life is a carnival–it’s in the book
Life is a carnival–take another look

Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch real cheap
Here on the street
I got six on each arm and two more round my feet
Life is a carnival–believe it or not
Life is a carnival–two bits a shot

Unlearning attitudes is critical

February 18, 2011

You’ve been told your whole life you need to settle for less.

Everyone’s told that and the key is to identify the voice on that tape playing inside your head (ie. your dad, older brother, teacher, spouse, etc.)

It’s not being selfish to demand better for yourself.

Be modern and caring buy not thinking about what you eat

February 14, 2011

Don’t even look at it says a fast food nation.

Just buy; feed that hollowness.  Anyone questioning food-based addictions and mindlessness are shunned. Those without straight hair may have a harder time, however.

Case in point: Woody pleads out to 5 instead of 30 years.

Blonds never tamper with food.

[Circa 1966, Jumping Frog]


By writing to your franchisor you show him to be a phoney

January 27, 2011

That is the real power of documents in a franchisee-directed wiki.

They speak truth to fraudulent authority.

Get busy living, Get busy dying

November 16, 2010

Funny how choices can sometimes get muddled up, eh?

Prisons come in many sizes and shapes but it’s the ones we build inside ourselves that’ll kill ya.

I wonder where my confidence went?


Who signs up as a sharecropping family in 2010?

November 2, 2010

Nobody does.

Nobody does it intentionally.

They think it is impossible in a free society for modern day sharecropping to thrive in plain sight.

They learn, partially and too late, that the business risks are deeper and wider than they could ever imagine. Before WikidFranchise, no one has inventoried these investment risks. They blame themselves, miss the patterns and like in all well-structured con games 50% of the marks are good for a 2nd go.
