Daring To Innovate: The Key To Finding Success As An Entrepreneur

While you may be used to hearing “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” from the Star Wars movie franchise uttered more often by film-lovers around the world, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Dr. Simon Ourian swear by these words in his day-to-day life as an entrepreneur as well.

How to Succeed as a Franchisee #podcast

“While franchising’s prevalence in the U.S. economy indicates that franchisees can succeed, hundreds of franchisees fail each year. The most frequent causes: lack of funds, poor people skills, reluctance to follow the formula, a mismatch between franchisee and the business, and poor management. Often, it’s the small stuff that separates winners from losers.” – WSJ.com
