Fried Chips – The Precursor to Letting My Poor Brain Go

October 2, 2014 | Leo Eliades

Let your poor brain 'GO' and you 'WILL' create wealth.

When I was in my early teens I remember the trips to the country with my father. When we stopped for lunch I always ordered a plate of chips as this was the cheapest item on the menu and everyone else was eating steak. Everyone thought that I did not care much for steak, the […]

Master Franchising and the Impact on Franchisees

August 27, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Selling a Franchise

When a franchisee (also referred to as sub-franchisee) considers entering into a franchise system that operates under a master franchise structure, this requires not only additional documents to be reviewed, but raises issues that need to be carefully considered before a sub-franchisee signs on. Currently in Australia before a sub-franchisee can enter into franchise, it […]



Why Invest In Yourself? You Are the Product

August 18, 2014 | Pix Jonasson

Professional speakers know that to stay in the spotlight they need to invest in self-education, marketing and their business.

Basically, for many business women who are not just the business owner but also the product of the business, your business is really about you. For example, if you are a professional speaker, your speaking empire is based upon your own knowledge and your own ability. Therefore, your knowledge and ability are the ‘company’ assets […]



Franchises Are Not Forever

July 30, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Franchises are not forever

Franchise agreements generally have a set period that they are to exist, with no automatic rights to extend operations after the expiry date. Neither is there generally any rights for a franchisee to be able to sell its franchise for a period that exceeds the Term and any renewal options expressly set out in their […]



Should I Set Up a Master Franchise Structure Within Australia?

June 27, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Seting up Franschine Structure

In Australia we tend to see more overseas master franchisors who have granted a master franchise for the whole of Australia, as opposed to Australian based master franchisors who break up Australia into various territories (often, but not always based on State boundaries) that are then given to various master franchisees to operate the franchise […]



Is it Time to Ditch the Business Plan?

May 30, 2014 | David Solomon

Ring your insurance broker TODAY and make sure that your business insurance policy does include Tax Audit protection.

I’ve long been an advocate for very thorough planning – especially contingency planning. I think it stems from my time in the army (a long time ago) where I learnt that “Prior Preparation and Planning Prevents Poor Performance”. Being much more optimistic than pessimistic, I have since made that into “Prior Preparation and Planning Promotes Positive […]



Prepping to Sell Your Franchisee Business

May 7, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Planning your business strategies and foundations for 2015

Just because you own your own franchise business, does not mean you can deal with it or sell it to another as you see fit. Franchisees will generally be restricted under the terms of their franchise agreement in respect to when, how and who they can sell their franchise business and/or any right in respect […]



How to Create a Soul Goal for You and Your Business

April 23, 2014 | David Solomon

Business success - here's how to discover the soul goals that are housed in your heart.

Human beings are strange creatures. As soon as we set a goal, the average human being will automatically start comparing where we are at now in contrast to how we perceive we should be travelling towards the goal. Whilst this can be very motivating for some, for others it can have the exact opposite effect […]



Are You Ready to Start Building Your Franchisor Foundations?

April 9, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Don't hit the start button on your Franhcise operation until you do your homework.

Before you go to print on your new ‘flash’ advertising that you are now offering franchises or sign on your first franchisee, you should have commenced laying down your franchisor foundations. What makes up your foundations may not be a simple matter and I strongly recommend getting a lawyer and an accountant, with substantial franchising […]
