slide 1: Patience vs. Urgency: Which Do You Need for a Successful Franchise “Patience is a virtue.” “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” “The early bird gets the worm.” “Don’t put off to tomorrow what you can do today.” Our language is filed proverbs adages and clichés that confusingly extoll both patience and urgency. When running a business especially a franchise this contradiction in our society becomes readily apparent. Before you even buy a franchise people will tell you to “strike while the iron is hot” and to “not get left behind” but also to “wait for your chance” and save up and make sure you are ready. Successful people learn to strike the balance between these two. Knowing when to bide their time and when to dive into something head first. But if you’re looking to purchase a franchise how can you possibly know when which tactic is more prudent If you have no experience yourself it can be difficult to know when you need to do what to make your franchise successful. Emulate the best When you’re going down a path on which you have never been before it is best to learn what those have done before you. Let’s consider the most successful franchises in San Antonio Texas. San Antonio is a big fast growing city with a large diverse population and expanding market opportunities. There’s lots of money to made there but there is also stiff competition. How do you keep up Begin with patience If you are looking to win a foot race you must run fast. But you must also take time to prepare yourself for said race. If you’re out of shape you will not succeed. slide 2: The same is true of running a successful franchise in San Antonio. You can’t just decide to do it one day because you felt like quitting your job. You need to think through your skills and what you can use to maximize for success. You also need to identify your goals for having a business and establish budgets. One budget to fund the business. The other to cover your living expenses as it ramps up. This preparation takes time and self-reflection. Once put it place finding a franchise that fits your goals and criteria can be much simpler. Thefinishline in the race to success can come more quickly. Start sprinting Once you have found the right fit for you and your franchise opens it’s time to go full speed. San Antonio like much of Texas is growing. You need to work hard and fast at getting your name out there advertising staying open to catch as many customers/clients as possible. The first year of running a franchise is often the busiest time of a franchisee’s life but it is necessary to become successful. Strike a balance “All things in moderation” is cliché but it’s one that definitely fits here. As you begin to run your franchise you will learn how to strike the balance between patience and urgency. You will eventually learn things like when to urgently push your employees and when to be patient with them. Ultimately take your time to research franchise opportunities that could be right for you and learn about the market you want to serve in this case San Antonio. And once you see an opportunity move fast and grab it. Work hard work fast and then learn to strike that balance and you too can have one of the most successful franchises in San Antonio Texas.
