There's A Wealth Of Knowledge You Can Leverage To Plan For The Future
It is difficult to plan for the future in the unknown of a post-pandemic world. What’s worse, it looks as if we are now in a ‘here we Covid again’ kind of scenario.
But reflecting on where we’ve been and looking forward, one thing is clear. Multi-unit franchise owners have gained a ton of insight and knowledge. Whether it’s been gleaned from the pandemic, the new presidential and political environment, or the social unrest, we’ve experienced history-making events and changes that have forced change in the way we do business. And we will continue to face changes and need to seek ways we can protect ourselves.
As we are talking to multi-unit franchisee business owners across the country, we are hearing, “I don’t know if we can do this again, I don’t know if we will survive a second round.” It may not be easy and you will likely be challenged with some hard decisions. In those moments, connect with your why - the mission and vision behind what you do - and lean on your years of experience problem solving and doing a lot with very little.
The ‘here we Covid again’ environment can create a feeling of panic and helplessness. However, you are in control of so many things, one of them being your state of mind. If you are feeling your mind racing with wonderment, take a deep breath and leverage the energy for good by moving from a feeling of panic to an attitude of resourcefulness.
As you are moving to a resourceful ‘Give me your best shot’ attitude, leverage what we know to your advantage.
