Ten things franchisors should tell you before investing in their franchise but probably won’t! Franchisors are human beings just like you. They probably have children, parents, siblings etc. They are human beings who get scared, who worry, who…

I have rarely had a more frustrating week in this. We have a project that is ongoing with a particular supplier who don’t seem to understand things like ‘deadlines’, ‘timeframes’ and ‘consequences’. They think it’s ok to ‘promise’ one date and then let it come and go, then set another ‘deadline’ and then let it come and go.    When you stop and think about it, this is probably one…

I have become very interested in the American elections, overwhelmingly because of one man: Donald Trump.

We are talking about a man who has created…

Last week I went to Symphony Hall with a friend of mine to see Chris Hadfield, the astronaut. He started off by talking about how as a boy (like many other boys I guess) he wanted to be an astronaut, but being Canadian the chances were non-existent, as Canada had no space program. Anyway it was yet another story about how someone succeeds in living their dream against all odds through persistence and…
