Powerful words…


One of the most asked questions I get as an entrepreneur is:
"How do I franchise my business" 💡
The answer is not simple - and it is definitely subject to change according to what field you are in. 📊
Here is 4 P's for you to focus on:
🧩 The Product
🧩 The Price of the Product
🧩 The Place (as in where are you planning on promoting)
🧩 & the Promotion of the Product
But this is only the starting point and will take much more out of you to make a success of it 💯
I do show people how I did it because I have a PROVEN MODEL

What a fantastic testimony from Chris Faulkner

⭐️26 YEARS AGO TODAY⭐️ On the way back from visiting a Karate school ( A style I had previously trained in before moving to Devon) which unfortunately was closed. I was driving home disappointed that I wasn’t able to train, while driving through Barnstaple I saw a sign for MATT FIDDES BLACK BELT ACADEMY so I thought “ why not, what have I got to lose “. On entering I was met by someone who was younger than me in a uniform ( I would find out that it was Taekwondo and the owner & Chief Instructor Matt Fiddes himself). Classes had finished but he offered to give me a 15 minute introduction. In my Martial Arts journey my previous instructors had always been older than me but here was a 17 year old with a ponytail and a 3rd Dan at the time ( so he had my respect as a martial artist but not as a person ( I was always taught to respect my elders but he was younger than me ). After the introduction he went through a presentation on the programs offered at first I was skeptical due to it being monthly standing order for monthly classes ( Direct Debits wasn’t a thing back then ) I was used to to paying a couple of pounds every time I trained.
I was taken back by his professionalism and the fact with it being a monthly payment that even if there was 1 or 20 students there would be a class ( again previously if there was only a few students the class would be cancelled due to the instructor not being able to cover the venue hire ).
I am a student, Instructor and Franchise Owner.
Matt Fiddes has been my Instructor and mentor for the last 26 years.
I always think where would I be in my Martial Arts journey if the class I went to visit would have been on.
As I train towards my 6th Dan retest in November I thank all those I have trained with over the last 26 years an to all my students that I have taught & trained with.

Respect Always
