Advice for Car Wash Guy

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

“Jim” developed a nice Michigan business over 15 years of washing cars at people’s homes. He offered an old-fashioned hand washing for $30 to $40 for a van or a larger vehicle. He developed a steady clientele of customers who liked this service. All they had to do was pull the car out of the garage without having to take it anywhere. In addition the car didn’t have to go through a harsh carwash. With Michigan’s regular summer rains and winter road salt, this developed into a popular service. He also serviced cars at a customer’s employment location. They liked driving to work with a dirty car in the morning and going home with a clean vehicle in the afternoon.

When a Prospect is too Positive

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I spend time working with clients to locate a franchise opportunity that fits their background, passion and investment tolerance.  At times I connect with a prospect that is too positive about an idea before they get very far into the process. What generally happens in these circumstances is that after a period of extreme excitement, they totally disappear from the radar screen and won’t return my calls or respond to me. I believe they either get excited about another idea or, more likely, a reality they don’t want to deal with begins to soak in.

Practice Your Presentations

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

When I worked in international trade, I attended a dinner with about 300 people. Shortly before the meal started we learned the speaker would not arrive due to some weather problems. As the organizer scrambled for a replacement, I offered to give a talk I had given before. Because I had my notes in my briefcase from a recent presentation and had given the talk a number of times, I could deliver it again on such short notice.

Our Legacy

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

We will all leave a legacy. The question is what type of legacy will we leave behind? Often it is one event we don't realize makes as big a difference as it does that becomes the legacy others remember. I will use examples from politicians because they are known to most people. However, I use them for example only and not to make any political statement.
