  1. Thanks Patrick for another insightful show on how to obtain Business Freedom – as a business owner I know that is something I always strive for and I’m sure most others do as well! Thanks for the great tips about developing an operations and training manual. Looking forward to your next show.

  2. Thanks, Patrick, for a lot of good information on operations and training for your business. It makes sense that having all these systems set up like a franchise would make for a more successful business.

  3. Great info about Franchisitizing your business Patrick. Your client’s goals are the same as my own, i would like my business to be self sufficient, and even bringing on additional help is forcing me to track and asses my operations and training processes so that someone else can easily step in and become educated about my company quickly. Thank you for sharing.
