Know your purpose, what you're doing. For me, that is the most important thing is knowing why I'm here, what I'm doing, and reminding myself of that day in and day out.” (Sara) * “That’s the most important thing is growing the community, right? If you don’t know why you’re doing it, it’s really hard to invite people to be included in it.” (Michele) * “Learn about other franchises. Take some time to research what is out there and learn what kinds of training they have for their franchisees. It's worth taking the time to learn about what else is out there, even if you know that's what you want to do.” (Sara) What Do You Think? We’d love to hear from you!
