Act in Haste, Repent At Leisure Potential franchisees and franchisors alike should remember this quote when contemplating a move into franchising, not because franchising itself is bad, but because bad decisions about franchising can be catostrophic.

by Jason Gehrke

failing to prepare a business plan that demonstrates the viability of the enterprise, and failing to get advice about the franchise agreement and business model. So in other words, the rush to replace an employed income with a self-employed income causes many potential franchisees to make bad decisions based on a lack of knowledge. This is the “act in haste” stage.

Take for example, the person who is made redundant from their job (an increasingly likely occurrence at the moment), and who decides to change their life by transitioning from worker to boss by buying a franchise.

Then what potentially follows is a gradual realisation – especially if the business has not met the buyer’s original (and often unrealistic) expectations – that they’ve made a poor decision and the best option is to exit. Thus enters the “repent at leisure” stage.

Unfortunately the redundancy package isn’t so large that the person can afford to search for the perfect franchise indefinitely before their cash reserves run dry, so they quickly decide on a franchise based on what they think they will enjoy doing, and move to finalise the arrangement with the franchisor.

The franchisee can then discover to their great surprise that in poor condition, their business could be worth less than what they paid for it. Or that there are no buyers for that particular type of business in their particular location at that particular time. Or generally that the business will take far longer to sell than it took to buy.

Commonly, the undue haste of a potential franchisee – particularly one who is not currently employed – can lead to fundamental due diligence factors being overlooked.

In hindsight, the franchisee may also realise (but struggle to admit) that they should have done more research up front before buying the franchise, so that they could be better prepared for the challenge

These fundamental factors can include

ahead, or make a different purchasing decision altogether. Similarly franchisors should beware of acting in haste, especially those new to franchising. Not every business that evolves into a franchisor will be successful. There have been many concepts in Australia that have been franchised which were not adequately sustainable, not adequately profitable for either franchisees or the franchisor, or which did not have an adequate leadership team to manage its growth. Examples include high-profile franchise collapses such as Kleenmaid, Kleins and Angus & Robinson. However for every highprofile franchise collapse, it is likely that several more very small franchisors also crash and burn, often because they should never have been franchised in the first place. In these instances, the haste to grow a small business by franchising failed to deliver the results for either the franchisor, or their franchisees, and when a business collapse occurs, the consequences are farreaching and enduring. Like the headline says, act in haste, repent at leisure.

Revolutionary Change by Paul St. Clair, F.C.A., Dip. Fin. Services In every area of activity some major form of change is taking place. The publicity given to change is greatest in such areas as climate, medicine, Paul St. Clair population, living standards, telecommunication, computers, economics, military hardware, space and aeronautical technologies.

With change, we will have fluctuations in investment values. These values will be driven by world population increases, establishing needs, which is the mother of invention. If the experts are right, world population will peak around 2050 creating other economic problems.

The experts have been telling us that world knowledge doubles every ten years and the rate is increasing. Such rate of change has never been experienced previously, amounting to real revolutionary change.

If this success continues a new and important chapter will have been written in our economic books. It is these types of changes, if finally successful, that will lift economic standards, employment and reduce poverty.

At present economic experiments are being implemented under the names of Quantitative Easing and Abenomics. The purpose is to attend to toxic debt, reduce unemployment and lift economic activity. So far these changes appear to be successful.

In the main the changes taking place are for good. Problems can arise, some being as a result of unforeseen circumstances. As experience has taught us, humans have been able to adapt to the new circumstances. This may well be at considerable loss of life and resources. Since change in some cases is measured in money terms, the effect on investment can be profound. Consider in 2003 there was no iPhone, no iPad, and no Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Some may remember Bakelite radios and crystal sets and now digital TV and global roaming. Further consider the remarkable medical discoveries, their operational functioning, resulting in humans living longer. In the 1900s average life expectancy for men was 55 and for women 59. Today it is 80 and 84 respectively. Medical experts tell us that within the next twenty years one in three Australians will live past 100 and the first human to live over 150 years has already been born. One scientist goes as far as to say that the baby who lives to 1,000 is just two decades away. If you do not believe this opinion, the fact is that we are living longer, healthier, and have more active lifestyles. Managing the retirement problem in Australia is well planned. At present Australia spends 2.75 percent of Gross Domestic Product on the age pension and by 2050 it is anticipated to be 4 percent. 8 Australian Business For Sale ®

In the last one hundred years many economic experiments have been tried, many have failed, with dire consequences. It is fair to say that the present economic system of the market economy with its faults, is the best economic system known. Warren Buffett said, “Since my birth in 1930, the Dow Jones has increased from 100 to 12,000 and the standard of living in the US has increased sixfold. It has unleashed the human potential of wealth creation like none other in history.” It would seem there will always be challenges, be they political unrest, revolution, war, famine, genocide. In Australia we are less likely to be tested by these types of calamities than many other countries. To develop Australia as a strong viable nation, there are those in Australia who would like to see an increase in Australia’s population from the present twenty-three million to seventy million by 2075. The challenges will be to employ an extra eleven million workers, building eight million homes, an extra seventeen million cars on the nation’s roads. So we will see the challenges permeate through all sections of Australian society. If we had seventy

million people Australia would have a car industry into the future. Just as Australia will be quite different in 2075 to Australia today, so too the world will be different. We may be able to guess to some degree what the world will be like, but as history has shown, many revolutionary changes are likely to eventuate between now and 2075 which we cannot imagine. So in these circumstances how should we conduct ourselves? The first rule is always keep abreast of what changes are taking place and act appropriately. Move with these changes as they affect us. Difficulties may be experienced with investments. Always consider quality investments. The old rule of holding investments long term may need some rethinking. As the revolutionary change gathers pace, what looks like a quality investment today may not be such in years to come. The so called long term investment rule needs some flexibility. The effect of revolutionary change will be just as important for business. A successful business must move with the times otherwise it will be left and possibly fade away into liquidation. Consider for a moment those big and profitable businesses of the eighteen hundreds that were involved in building sailing ships, transport by horse and cart, and ice for domestic cooling of perishable goods. We all play a part in this type of change, including owners and management of businesses, governments and unions. The changes may necessitate reeducation, changing jobs and even addresses to find employment. In brief this is restructuring of the economy which at present is having a major impact on the Australian economy as the car industry and capital expansion in the mining industry, are unwinding. These structural changes are best dealt with by those involved having the right balanced attitude towards them. Work smart and hard and the rest will follow. Remember you may be around for many decades.

Publicity - A Hidden Goldmine For Your Business And The “Secret” Pathway To Success By Bob Lyon Product publicity is the "secret pathway" to business success everyone wants. In simple terms, product publicity is a kind of advertising that costs you nothing, yet brings in the orders for you. Regardless of what kind of business you are operating, you should want, and strive for, as much publicity for your business and your products or services, as possible. After all, it’s "free advertising" that is essential to the growth of your business. However, your publicity efforts should be well thought out, and pre-planned for maximum results. The first and basic form of obtaining publicity is through what is known as … the press or news release. This is generally a one page story about your business, your product/service or an event/happening related to your business that is about to, or has recently occurred. These publicity stories are generally "shot-gunned" to all the various media: local newspapers, radio and TV, and trade publications. Problem number one is getting the people to whom you've sent these publicity stories, to use them, that is, to publish or broadcast them. And this leads us back to the "right way” of writing them and sending them in. In every case, send a short cover letter addressed to the person you want your material to be considered by. This means that you send your story to the city editor of the newspapers; the news directors of the radio and TV stations; and the managing editors of the various trade publications. It will do you no good what-so-ever, to send your material to the advertising, circulation or business managers describing how you're a long-time advertiser, subscriber or listener. The most important thing is that you make contact with the person who has the final say as to what is to be published or broadcast, and at the bottom line - this person's use of your material will somehow make him a "hero" to his or her readers, viewers or listeners. The cover letter should be a short note. 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

Let’s take the Better Business Report - my regular publication for serious business owners to bring in new customers - as an example. You might send the following note to the editors and news directors of the media in their areas: "Here's something that’s new, and for a change, truly helpful, to business people trying to grow their customer base and those wanting to know how to write advertising that sells. Should be of real value - interest - to your readers. Please take a look - any questions, or if you need more info, give me a call at: 043 883 0937." Then, of course, you skip about four spaces, type your name, your business name, and your address - sign your name above where you’ve typed it, and staple this note in the upper right hand corner of your news release. So, now you've got a cover letter, and you know who to send it to. Then take it to a near-by quick-print shop and have them print 50 to100 copies. Now you need the actual publicity release, which also must be "properly" written if you expect it to be used by the media. Above all else, there's a proper form or style to use, plus the fact that it must be typed, double-spaced, and short - about a half page in total length. You can do it a number of ways, but here's one that’s worked for me: • About an inch from the top of the paper, with an inch and a half margin on each side of the paper; from the left hand margin, type in all capital letters: “PRESS RELEASE:” Then, underline these words. Immediately following the colon, but not in all capital letters, put in the date. Always set the date forward by at least one day after the day you intend to mail the release. • On the same line, but on the right hand side of the page, and in all capital letters, write the words, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: • Underline this, and immediately below, but not in all capital letters, type your name - your phone number - and your address. Skip a couple of spaces, then in all capital

letters - centred between the margins type a story headline, and underline it. • Skip a couple of spaces, and from the left hand margin, all in capital letters, type the words, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: From there on, it's the news or publicity story itself. You can write the headline before the story, and then a story to fit the headline or the story before the headline, and then a headline to fit the story - either way, it's basically the same as writing a space ad or a sales letter... ... You attract attention and interest with the headline and fill in the details with your story. Here's an example of the headlines I use on publicity blurbs for the “Inside Secrets Of Advertising” home study course: HELP IN GETTING MORE CUSTOMERS ... FAST NEW CUSTOMER-GENERATING PUBLICATION FOR SMALL BUSINESS Notice how I continue to sell or involve the editor - His readers are always looking for better ways to make ends meet, and he’s specifically interested as to what our promise involves. He wants his readers to "think well" of him for enlightening them with this source of help, so he reads into the story to find out who, what and how. Suffice it to say that your headline, and the story you present to the editor, must sell him on the benefits of your product or service to his readers. Unless it specifically does this, he will not use it. You must sell the first person receiving your materials. Keep this fact uppermost in your mind as you write it. The person you send your press or publicity release to, must quickly see and understand how your product or service will benefit his readers - thereby making him a hero to them - and he must be assured it will do what you promise in your headline. Come right to the point and say your product is lower in price ... or more convenient to use ... or whichever way your product or service is useful to the people in general. It's also a good idea to include a complimentary sample of your product or an opportunity for him to sample your services.

Pages_003-018_Pages_003-018 17/02/2015 11:56 am Page 11

Remember, the editors receiving your information are fully aware of your purposes - Free Advertising! They are not the least bit interested in you or your credentials. If you've sold them on the benefits of your business to their readers, and they want background details, they'll call you. That's why you list your telephone number and address. These people are busy people. They have not got the time or the interest in reading about your trials and tribulations or plans for the future. They want only "a flag" that alerts them to something new and of probable real interest to their readers. Sell the editor first. Convince him that you've found the better mousetrap. Show him that your product or service - your business -fills a need and/or will interest a large segment of his readers, his viewers or listeners. When an editor uses your publicity release, always follow-up with a short 'thank you' note. On the other hand however, never, ever send a publicity release to an editor and then call or write demanding to know

why he didn’t use it, use it as you wrote it, or only gave you a quick mention. Do this once, and that particular media will "round-file" any further material received from you, unopened! If your first effort is not used, then you should review the story itself; perhaps write it from a different angle; make sure you` re sending it to the proper person and try again! As I said, these people are busy, with hundreds of publicity releases passing across their desks every day. They only have so much space or time. Therefore, your material has to stand out and in some way, fit with the information they - the editors - want to pass along to their readers, viewers or listeners. 7 Regardless of your business, product, or service, you must build your press release - write it - around that particular angle or feature that makes it beneficial or interest to the readers, viewer or listeners of the media you want to run your press release. Without this special ingredient, you're lost before you begin! The timing of your press release is always

important. Try to associate your press release with current events in the news. A story on how hard it is for small businesses to survive, carried in the newspapers, on TV and radio, would prompt me to get publicity release out to all the media on the help and opportunity offered by the Hot Tips Advertising Letter! There's another kind of timing also to keep in mind ...Publication deadlines. For best results, always try to time it so your material reaches the editor in time for the Sunday paper. This is because that's when the papers have their greatest circulation; the most space is available; and the people, the most time to read the paper. For articles you'd like to appear in the Sunday paper, you'll generally have to get your release in at least nine days prior to the date of publication. If you're in doubt, call and ask about the deadline date.

Low Interest Rates. Time to Act The Reserve Bank has cut interest rates to a record low. Is this your opportunity to reap the benefits of these low interest rates? Could this make a difference to your short-term cash flow requirements? Could this be a sign to look at your long-term financial objectives and begin to explore how to create an investment property portfolio? Could this be the right time to investigate the benefits of consolidating your existing loans? Here’s what others are saying about this record low interest rate cut and what’s possible. Property analyst Tim Lawless from CoreLogic RP Data says, “Lower mortgage rates have the potential to add some fuel to what are already strong housing markets.” In a recent blog article Mark Bouris from Yellow Brick Road elaborated on a number of strategies for debt reduction. He says, “This is a great time to consolidate and pay down your debts.” So, what does this really mean for you and your business? One thing is for sure, if you don’t make time to get these questions answered, then it may just pass you by. At the same time, I do want to acknowledge that running a business can be an all encompassing, time consuming beast that never lets up. However, as the owner you get to set the tone, call the shots, and choose what’s important. All you need do is to clarify whether or not it’s value for money to dedicate a few hours of your time to review what benefits you could reap from this record low interest rate. Maybe, and just a maybe, what if the Reserve Bank was on your side – how might you take advantage of this decision? Step One: make a decision to reconnect with your accountant, mortgage broker, financial advisors – whoever is on your financial management team, and begin the conversation 12 Australian Business For Sale ®

about consolidating any existing loans, and seek their advice about how to take advantage of these current conditions and build a longterm financial strategy. Step Two: if any of your advisors want to keep the status quo, and not make any changes, then seek a second opinion. Your financial future is your responsibility so begin to put your best interests ahead of what’s considered easy or not seen as a priority. Step Three: use the low interest rates to your advantage.

Consolidate and reduce your debts Consolidating is a type of refinancing that usually means getting a new loan to pay out a number of other loans. Any good mortgage broker will advise you on how best to maximise your borrowing capacity. In looking at how to consolidate your finances, the best place to start is to take stock of where you are. List out all your current debts. Then look at what your most expensive high interest debts are such as credit cards, and personal loans. Imagine the money you might save by getting a consolidation loan, with a lower interest rate, to pay off debts. What’s important is that you find out from your broker if you are in a position to refinance your mortgage to consolidate your high-interest debts. Because, by refinancing you may find there are better ways to use money.

Building your wealth As a business owner, you are interested in building wealth correct? At the same time, you may be trapped in a mindset of “I can’t afford to invest in anything other than my current business.” Well, today’s interest rates make investing that much more affordable, and manageable for many people. The shift that needs to occur is the way you think and have a mindset that says, “I can afford to invest, and I will explores all avenues about

by William de Ora how I can build my wealth.” This isn’t just about positive psychology or hype – this is about you becoming the investor within your business, and gaining the maximum leverage out of your efforts. With such low interest rates on mortgages, this is your opportunity to think about using your home loan to build wealth by leveraging investments. The secret to building wealth is using the equity that you have already built up in your property to assist you to invest in an asset that appreciates in value. By looking to invest in neutral to positive cash flow investments there are many benefits in terms of your investment strategy. The house essentially pays for itself – with money left over. These types of real estate opportunities increase your serviceability, making you more attractive to banks and lenders. In short, if you can find the right investment property, and

increase your income you are able to borrow more. However, in making the time to review your current circumstances, it’s also prudent to ensure that you have a strong plan for the future to adjust, accommodate, and work with any potential rate rises. Considering and planning for all possible scenarios is just wise management. It’s what you do every day in your business to keep things on track. The difference is that you’ll be investing time in creating a future that truly works for you. Some day one day, you will need more than your business to generate your income. Therefore, if ever there was a time to rethink how you’re managing your money, hopefully it’s now.

A New and More Exciting Way of Getting into a Your Own Business by Vivian Shaw – New business reporter Up until now, the only real way of getting into a business was either by buying an existing business, buying a franchise, or starting up on your own business. All of these methods have their pros- but they also have their cons. Matt Buchel, founder of Portable Building Business-ina-Box, has combined the good parts of the three business models that I've mentioned above; that is he's got the systems of the franchise, the knowledge and the data of an existing business and the low cost of a start-up business all combined into one package. Plus he offers support for your first 12 months, giving you a full turn-key system with no on- going fees and the option to have leads delivered straight to your own website. Portable buildings are in high demand with the booming

granny flat market, booming mobile accommodation, homeowners, business owners, even corporate departments all looking for portable buildings. Look around and see the big players such as Ausco and Atcoportable buildings, all the building sites, all the different areas that people need accommodation. Portable buildings are a much more cost-effective way of doing an extension to a home or adding a new room or accommodation to the backyard. Now, the portable building business in a box program gives a instant start into this lucrative industry with this unique new program created by Portal Building Business-in-a-Box.

Location, Location And Location An established restaurant in highly sought after precinct 5 km from CBD south is for sale. Sits 120 people and has a liquor license and ETP. A lot of foot traffic throughout the day from locals to international travellers. The area is known for family friendly even late at night. Current operating hours are fairly limited. With the innovative mix the sky is the only limit for the right person. Established in 2006, this soon became a popular spot but the vendor has always been unwell. It soldiered on but finally decided

to sell it to concentrate more on health. All plants, equipment and artefacts are included in the sale. Great effort went into branding but It’s not necessary to continue on with the name. In 2014 this restaurant was a Finalist for Gold Plate Award and Australian Hotel Association Excellence Award. The Lease is in place for ten years (5X5) which commenced in 2013. The rent is very competitive given the popularity of the area and the high visibility. Owner does not want to be contacted by agents or advertisers.
