Song Dog I noticed under your name it says don't franchise. Is there a reason for this. I only ask because a certain company, Mr. you know who has been bugging me to start a franchise with them but I really have no desire too, but I not sure what reason to give them other than I am never going to work or partner with anybody ever again after what happened with my last employer.

You are not obligated to give them any reason...
Just do the Nancy Regan thing...



Song Dog has some good reasons...

Glad this came up.

Don't franchise or to franchise?
I would never franchise. Why? There is Nothing wrong with it.
But If you want to start your own business. That is exactly what it is your own business, Your thoughts your creativity you control what you buy and buy from. Franchise in my respects takes away your creativity. Even if your great at what you do you still carry the franchise's baggage Bad press history of complaints even if someone had bad service say in Mass by what ever franchise you use and the talk to friend's, relatives in say Florida and the had a bad experience with that company name you may already have lost that sale. You will never know. With Your company your reputation and good name no baggage unless you made a bad name for yourself. No franchise no history baggage that comes with their franchise name. you get to create your history your master piece. It's like art you painted the picture why let someone else put their name on it...It's up to you I would never. :no:

I had a company/guy call me almost daily. He offered to buy into my company. I flat out told him "No thank you sir! I have enough people with there hands in my pockets, Not enough room for another set of hands. Thank you and DON"T call again" haven't heard from him since!

I can go into great detail as why not do it. But it is late.
I would have to go into detail off forum. You are only allowed so many characters:laughing: to type.

In Christ,
