I see a lot of wanna be business owners each week. And the one of the biggest things I try to impart on them as of late, because I recently realized this to be truly important, is that you must ultimately keep full eyes on your business. Owning a business isn't easy -- if it were, everyone would be doing it. What most of people don't necessarily realize about a franchise, which some might misconstrue as a business that absolutely runs itself, is that they still require a lot of work. It's still their business. The franchise model only works if people who ultimately have the most skin in game actually have the passion to make it succeed. No one else will make that happen for them.
