While my work has, up to now, been for free on the internet (here and at WikiFranchise.org), I too need to charge for my services. I have invested in a technology that franchisees can access to improve their situation.
One thing I have learned about franchisee/franchisor relationships is this:
Franchisees are not powerless. It is a lie that franchisees cannot improve their situation, although an unthinking, passive legal-only strategy will almost always fail.
Franchisee champions that call me require a willingness to learn: to accept an education, advice, training, leadership development and coaching that quite frequently moves them outside of their “comfort zone”. After an initial interview, we customize a plan to protect the leaders and start re mediating the damaged/broken franchsie relationships.
I teach a PhD course in franchisee empowerment.
I choose my clients carefully because these are long-term, highly confidential trusting relationships. I am available 24/7 and have many resources to draw upon (see LinkedIn). Franchisor over-reaching (opportunism: self-interest with deceit) is a chronic condition that goes for as long as anyone is a franchisee. There are very few short-cuts or quick fixes.
