Franchisees can regain the Hope that may have been driven out


Bad habits need to be unlearned.

In my experience, it takes 18 months for franchisees’ families to re-build interpersonal trust and faith enough to really become effective.

  1. Patience is the art of hoping.
  2. All human wisdom is summed up in two words – wait and hope
  3. Patience is the companion of wisdom.
  4. The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.
  5. Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.

It’s too bad that most groups are sabotaged by their franchise bar lawyer before they reach that stage.

The time can be compressed if the partners get involved.

Patience is a virtue,

Possess it if you can,

Seldom found in woman,

Never found in man

    Les! You know that I read your site every day and enjoy always your presentation and explanation of the composition of The Beast of Franchising that destroys so many families in your country and mine.

    We try to spread the word! You were my mentor in that you taught me to look at “human nature” to understand how and why The Beast has survived among all of us who swear we believe in Peace on Earth and Good Will to All Men.

    Every time I think that I will burn my bridges and put this all behind me, I just can’t do it! I feel compelled to write and to warn, and to be, perhaps, my brothers’ and my sisters’ keeper — to educate those who will invest in good faith to know that “bad faith” is not restrained in the law surrounding franchising.

    Google. the great free University of the People, encouraged me to get my own blog, which I did. You can read my view of “The Great Franchising Robbery” on my brand new blog, and give me some hints!

    Life is funny, eh?

    Who would have guessed that it would have caused our lives to cross? There’s a reason for all this and as I was mentioning to someone today, while this or that may seem “good” or “bad”, the real test will be “Time will tell”.

    Any work done for the right reason and for others is never a waste, Carol. You have an important role to play as this unfolds.
