Every business has overhead. Also referred to as indirect expenses, overhead are/is expenditures a business must make to function, but this outlay does not contribute directly to the generation of profits.
For example, most businesses need to buy (or lease) office furniture for employees to be able to function. Without the furniture, the employee could not effectively work. The office furniture itself, however, does not produce profit.
Some other examples of business overhead could include …
- · Utilities: Gas, water and electricity keeps things running, but may not add direct value to the product or service.
- · Taxes: These governmental expenditures add nothing to the cost of goods sold, but they do serve to support the underlying infrastructure as well as provide protection from fire and theft.
- · Professional Service: Legal and accounting services are necessary, but they do not doanything to ramp up product (or service) value.
- · Insurance: This provides for protection against certain catastrophic events (fire, flood, theft, etc.), but nothing to directly improve sales.
Like any other business, professional services franchises likely incur many of these overhead items. There are three, however, that you might not consider … three that are vital to business success. Business cards. Coffee. And Tire Tread.
Success within the professional services industry (whether or not the business is franchised) hinges on relationships. As all things being equal people do business with those they know, like and trust. To build this involves networking – getting up out of your office and connecting with people.
So, if you are contemplating a professional services franchise (or better still, you own one), you need to factor in [to things] those three things. To be successful, you will have to …
- · Down more than a recommended amount of coffee; and
- · Log countless miles on your car.

Just Say “NO”
By Frank Agin
The number one thing that every franchise consultant or franchisor wants to hear from a prospective franchisee is … you guessed it … “Yes, I want that franchise opportunity. How do we set this in motion?”
This is no surprise. This is why consultants work tirelessly to connect candidates with the right opportunity. This is why franchisors work so hard to create an air of success within their franchise opportunity. It is all pointing towards the “Y-E-S.”
The number two thing that every franchise consultant and franchisor wants to hear from prospective franchisees is … perhaps surprisingly … “No, thanks!”
No one likes rejection. Consultants and franchisors are no different. Hearing “no” is, after all, never euphoric. Nevertheless, quality business professionals know they will not make every sale, or close every deal. Hearing “no” is not personal, and it is simply part of the process – a cost of doing business.
The last thing that franchise consultants and franchisors want to hear from prospective franchisees is, well, something akin to nothing. “I am thinking about it.” … “I will get back to you.” … “At the tone, please leave a message.”
As much as consultants and franchisors loath “N-O,” it is much, much worse to be left in limbo. At this point, the situation torments consultants and franchisors. They want to take action, but are paralyzed by not knowing what they should do. They don’t know how to best help their client / candidate. They can only ponder, “Has the deal gone dead? Or, is there still a viable prospect with whom you need to be responsive to?”
In essence, there is great value in hearing “NO.” As unpleasant as those two letters can be, that one word provides the broker or franchisor with closure. They can then move on and re-direct energies towards that next potential prospect.
So, if the opportunity is right, please give a hardy “YES,” and good luck to you with whatever you are signing on to.
If you are not sure (for whatever reason), openly communicate your questions or concerns. In short, have the courtesy, respect and professionalism to do your best to address your uncertainty.
If, however, you cannot get beyond the uncertainty or clearly, the opportunity is not for you, just say “No.” No one will take it personally. While that word might create a moment of discomfort, that moment will quickly pass. When it passes, you can be sure that the franchise consultant or franchisor will have nothing but admiration and respect for you.
