AI Can Handle your "Karen" Customer - Uzair Ahmed is transforming HVAC Customer Interactions

Steve Miller returns to provide practical advice on determining if franchise ownership is the right path for you in the world of entrepreneurship. Are you frustrated enough to make a go of it in the wild and oftentimes difficult world of small business ownership? For most home service-based franchise opportunities, Steve recommends having at least $170K in liquid form to weather the first year of getting the business off the ground. The two main reasons franchise ownership fails are a lack of demand for the product or service and a lack of liquid capital. Food businesses are the toughest to start and grow, but franchising offers you a way to research the business and the people involved before making a decision.
