This is a beef cow. Its ear is tagged to assign accountability if a steak kills someone.

Franchisees are not tagged, counted or valued in Ontario.

In all legitimate commercial activities,  If you want something you better count it. Can you imagine anybody not counting money in a bank? An auto industry without ISO standards?

cow People are More important than franchisee People

  1. Each cow is carefully counted, tracked, protected from disease,  and measured from birth to slaughter. There is sufficient regulation in place to protect public food safety. It is accessible for academic study.
  2. Franchisee are increasingly butchered for their life savings (bisons on the prairies).

Why should a government care about what an industry says when the elite refuses to maintain an independent, transparent method for tracking their franchise investors success or failures? This is particularly interesting when the Canadian Franchise Association, CFA suggests that they represent both franchisors AND franchisees which begs the fundamental existential agricultural question:

What half-assed farmer doesn’t bother to count their stock even though they have all the resources in the world to do so?

Mr. Cynical Bastard: It’s all about the flesh trade being passed off as a milking operation.

How anyone can legislate when there are zero credible quantitative measures to go by, is beyond me. The 1998 stats define the term “wonky”: the CFA simply takes the numbers the IFA commissions and divides them by “10” to Canadian-ize them. * This is the basis for overseeing/ignoring 40,000 (?) Ontario familys’ life savings.

* notwithstanding the fact that the U.S. has roughly 100 times Canada’s GDP and that there were, allegedly, 5,000 new lawsuits per year in Ontario  in 1998.

It’s enough to make a wolf smile.

Listen to a good Dr: Robert Hare says you should avoid subcriminal psychopathy and, if forced to deal with animals, keep them on a very short leash. That heaviness you’re feeling comes from a close encounter with what has been traditionally defined in Western society as evil.

As the majority of smart Ontario capitalists know after 4 decades of highly-publicized fraud:

Don’t rent any unilaterally changeable business model where your success or failure is never counted by anyone (eg. don’t fly on an airplane if a publicly accountable count of accidents is suppressed by the the airline trade association).

Double that when the “experts” want to trap in an ironclad  zero-sum situation (you lose, someone else wins) created by your own life savings (sunk cost).

Franchising and Google: More is always better, am I right?

July 20, 2010

Franchise sales claims are frequently inflated.So I was wondering:

What franchisee-related websites, weblogs, “communities” get the most Google search Results?

Here is what I found on July 19, 2010.

The Top 10

Rank Franchise Entity Search Term in ” ”
Results
1 IFA franchise.org 217,000
2 AAHOA aahoa.com 120,000
3 WikiFranchise wikifranchise.org 96,500
4 Franchise Chat franchise-chat.com 93,900

10 AAFD aafd.org 8,240

Happy now Les?

Sure: for what it’s worth…

  1. WikiFranchise.org is #3 (alive for less than 1.5 years) and
  2. FranchiseFool.com is #8 (3.7%) and
  3. together 16.5% (2nd only to the evil International Franchise Association).

Unfortunately, the industry continues to promulgate its long-ago discredited success claims (ie. BP Makes Discredited 90 Percent Claim).

These are the sites that I find interesting. Note that 59% of the sites are non-USA. The greatest translation site on WikidFranchise is Japan.
