Early in my career, I was told that sales is a game where it is easy to keep score. There is no hiding…the customer either buys or doesn’t buy. While this is true in sales, it is a bit harder to know where you stand with respect to competition as you are running a business from a general management perspective, especially in industries where there is imperfect information.
I have had a long franchising career and have been around a lot of Franchisor’s. When I left Camp Bow Wow, the largest Franchisor of Doggy Day Care and Boarding facilities in North America in 2014, I set out to only work with the best of the best in the service industry. I have always loved helping people and wanted to continue on the path of finding passionate and successful franchisees for brands I cared just as much about as Camp Bow Wow. The moment I met the co-founders of SafeSplash Swim Schools through a mutual franchise associate, I knew I had found my next big passion.
