You were taught to hate yourself

July 3, 2012

But can you hate just yourself?

What about the more vulnerable in your family.

Your spouse and kids.

You have the right to squander their lives by not resisting?

This goes for franchisees as well.

Where do you get unbiased franchise war reporting?

January 26, 2011

Certainly not from salespeople, captured academics or industry talking heads.

Learn from those reporting back from their own experiences via published media articles. They’re captivating war stories in many “veterans” perspectives.

Read for the closest-to reality check you’ll get.

At least so far.

Learn modern commercial warfare tactics from  specific executives, trademark systems and business risks.


I work for those with a future in franchising

Power never takes a back step — only in the face of more power.

February 21, 2010

The first month that an independent franchisee association survives proves that franchisees are more powerful than any franchisor.

Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. You don’t need anything else.

Maybe a little help with tactics and training…

If you got to give up your life up, let it be even-steven.

Malcolm X on the difference between House & Field Negroes.

  1. House negro -few, favoured, loves master and
  2. Field negro -many, hate master

Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it’s against the oppressor. You don’t need anything else.

When I was born, I was black. When I grow up, I’m black. When I’m ill, I’m black. When I die, I’m black. But you – When you’re born, you’re pink. When you grow up, you’re white. When you’re ill, you’re green. When you go out in the sun, you go red. When you’re cold, you go blue. When you die, you’re purple. And you have the nerve to call me Colored?

It is incorrect to classify the revolt of the Negro as simply a radical conflict of black against white or as a purely American problem. Rather, we are today seeing a global rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.\

I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they’ll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.

Watch him on a Canadian game show broadcast on Jan 1965 called Front Page Challenge (after Mecca). The minister was slain within six weeks.

House slaves in Franchising

November 19, 2008

The term “House Slave” is being used lately. It is a term I was unfamiliar with until I watched Malcolm X define it on this animated video.

There were two types of negroes: House and Field.

House: The house slaves lived in the master’s attic or basement, ate what the master ate, wore decent clothes, spoke correctly and loved the master more than the master loved himself. The house negro defended his master’s property, even more than the master did.

Field: The field negroes lived in shacks, ate the worst food and wore rags. They hated their master because of his cruelty. They wished his master only the worst.

I have known many franchisees who I would classify as House Negroes.

  • House franchisees are willing to continually degrade and betray their peers in order to ensure their favoured position.
  • I have only contempt for anyone so weak.

Maybe that’s why field franchisees like me never receive many Christmas cards.
