I know we have never stood “here”, so who knows where “here” leads in the next few weeks, but as a consultant who has a large pipeline of candidates who have mostly told me that they want to continue exploring,
learning and putting themselves into position, I want to encourage you to keep doing what you do!
We have never sold products and services. We are in the business of selling hopes and dreams! By maintaining and even increasing your leadership over the process, we are offering candidates who are sitting at home with nothing but time a positive, happy, life giving conversation that breaths life into their future and gives hope to their spirits.
We are needed now more than ever. Do we have all the answers about when they will actually be open for business or how they will fund, no, but let’s do what we can with what we have, and trust that the rest will work itself out in due time.
We all have to do our part in this crisis. That includes sheltering in place, helping our existing franchisees and inspiring more dreams for business ownership. Let’s show other industries how we can come together,
adapt to adversity and even thrive in the face of uncertainty. After all, adapting in the face of uncertainty is the definition of success in business ownership!
