Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is really proud to have recently been selected as the “winner” of the 2018 FranCompare™ Franchise Recognition Program. After comparing and weighing over 40 FDD-based data points for four of the major franchise systems in the Child Hair Care industry, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids received the highest score!

Janon Otto, CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, as well as owner of two Shear Madness locations, says that, "We have worked hard to provide services to our franchisees that other franchise systems do not have.  We are constantly looking for ways to increase margins, and other opportunities for our franchisees to increase profits.  We also have worked hard to provide an internal intranet service that helps not only owners, but all employees to do their jobs better!  Our franchisees are wonderful and we all share information that helps everyone get better!  

Janon also notes that, "Shear Madness Franchising is open with figures from all of our locations, from service sales detail, down to detailed retail sales so that we can all learn from each other and motivate our staff to be the best that they can be within the system!  We are never finished with our goal of developing the 'Franchise system by which all others are measured!'"

With its extensive product line of books, websites, databases, and consulting services, the World Franchising Network is a preeminent supplier of reliable, up-to-date and easy-to-use information on franchising. The primary focus of FranCompare™ is to determine those franchise systems that have better identifiable performance metrics than their direct competitors. FranCompare™ and the World Franchising Network are also committed to assisting individuals in their quest for self-employment and business ownership. They seek to provide prospective franchisees with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the franchise systems we consider the “best” from over 4,000 active North American franchisors. They also feel strongly that the operating and system advantages that franchising offers make it the preferred avenue for 95% of those who want to go into business on their own. Want to learn more?

RE-INVENTED : Career Shifters Part 2

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Aug 30, 2018 @ 13:08 PM

careerpt2

A couple of years ago someone I knew attended a seminar at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. The students had the privilege of meeting Dr. Pankaj Ghemawat , a Harvard professor of over 30 years. Dr. Ghemawat received his Bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics and his Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University from which he entered at the age of 16, was accepted to the Harvard Business Ph.D. program at age 19, and graduated three years later. Ghemawat has also been the Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy at IESE Business School in Barcelona since 2006.

At this particular evening however, Dr. Ghemawat talked about globalization & the growing need for higher education. He explained how different cultures are experiencing economical shifts and how globalization is playing such a key role in our futures as countries, businesses, families, & individuals. Globalization can be described as ‘…a widening, deepening, and speeding up of worldwide interconnectedness in all aspects of contemporary social life, from the cultural to the criminal, the financial to the spiritual’ (Held and McGrew 1999: 2)

Gone almost are the days when people had a specific set of skills their job required and they performed them with little variation over a long period of time. Today's technology, global commerce, and increasing energy demands have pushed individuals to possess more skills, be more flexible, and somehow manuever a smaller carbon footprint all simultaneously. These shifts can seem overwhelming and exhausting, especially to a student who may or may not know what color shirt they have on, much less what their career path is. So what advice is there for people starting a new career or RE-Inventing one they thought they had?

Career Change Advice: After any economic crisis, many people expect to bounce back - against competition, consumption, and change. How though? What does one do when RE-INVENTING a career or life for that matter, after the game is well underway? It's recommended you start by taking a thorough inventory of your professional skills & accomplishments. By making a list of ALL the things you are great at and why you have an essential tool for success. If there are skills you wish to have, write those down too!

The truth is there is no secret formula to inventing your ideal career match. Lifestyle, financial needs, and personal tastes change over time. Assessing where you are presently is crucial when shifting careers!  After taking your personal inventory begin assessing your personal needs. What are your business goals? What are your financial requirements? What kind of work schedule will fit for you and your family? I found a very helpful career assessment resource available from K-State University here!

Don't Box Yourself In! Depending on your position and experience, talking to a career counselor may be very helpful when shifting. The goal of career counseling is to help individuals identify multiple career areas which reflect the person's values, interests, and ambitions.

Interesting Fact: Nearly half the careers that will exist in the year 2025 don't exist today. To prepare for the unknown is a process. It requires learning about yourself, what you are most passionate about and how that fits into the world we live in. This will likely change over time. And that big word globalization... is key in product and services exchange now and in the future. This is the "widening, deepening, and speeding up of worldwide interconnectedness.." Get inspired. Think Big.

  • Computer systems analyst
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Physical therapist
  • Health services manager

5 Questions to Ask before Opening a Second Location

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

5guidelines.jpgThe idea of owning multiple stores when you buy into a franchise is appealing. So why do so many people fail at it? Here are some guidelines for economy of scale that we use in our children's salons:

  • Never open multiple stores at one time: Your steepest learning curve will be at your first location. If that location is successful, number two, three and four become easier.
  • Find the right people and trust them: At Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids we call these people “charismatic connectors”. They have the organizational skills, leadership skills and understand numbers - and the ability to manage multiple locations for you!
  • Make sure the numbers work: At our children's salons we have a number that tells us how many services a day you should do before you even think about opening another Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salon. You should never move forward to opening another salon until you hit those metrics.
  • Know your customer: After your first location you should have a rock solid idea of who your customer is: where they live, how much money they have and WHY they are your customer. This should give you a blue print for your second location.
  • Never stop learning: They say in business that the only constant is change. Now more than ever that holds true. Ways of marketing change daily, customers are fickle, and brand awareness is vital. If you like a challenge, you should do well!

Owning multiple locations is an exciting way to build a future income stream for yourself and your family. Just remember one thing, business is a marathon and not a sprint!

Why Your Franchise Isn't Performing Like You Thought It Would

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

whyI was recently on a website where franchisees can go to complain about there franchisors. The common  theme amongst the complaints was that the franchisor made a lot of promises that they didn't keep, the numbers weren't adding up like the franchisor said they would and they weren't being trained properly.
 
Of course, it's important to understand that when you buy a franchise, you'll need to wear  a lot of hats! Not only are you the head of operations, but you will need to recruit the best employees and constantly train them, give customers great service, track the numbers and watch your expenses and keep your finger on the pulse of your business. 
 
There are lots of reasons that franchises fail. Running a business is not for the faint of heart. But if you bought into a franchise, you bought into a system or process that has succeeded at some level. So my suggestion is if your franchise is not performing like you want it to, make sure that you are following the system! Franchisees often get their business up and running and then begin to change or modify existing services, advertising, products and even the quality and consistency of the customer service that they are delivering. This not only can lead to poor franchise performance, but can unfortunately be a violation of the franchise agreement as well. Yikes! So long story short, you'll definitely want to be sure to follow the franchise system you invested in, as it's a proven model for success!

Watch This Metric To Find Franchise Success

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

watchingThere are lots of moving parts to a franchise, including your franchisor's opening assistance, training and ongoing support. All of the aforementioned are important to your success as a franchisee, and the best way to measure these are to talk to current franchisees. 
 
As important as all these factors are, many people looking to buy a franchise fail to look at what is arguably the most important component of all: the customer. More specifically, how many customers are there for your concept where you want to open? Or, how many times will they come back in a given year, and how long can you hold on to them? This is called customer long term value, or CLV, and it can be the difference between your success or failure. 
 
Think about this, would you rather own a business where your customer comes back twice a year, or 8 times a year? Will they come back for the next 2 years, or the next 8? Will you be able to create a loyal customer or one that only needs your service once or twice per year?
 
Customers are fickle! Make sure that you have lots of them in your trade area, and that the franchise you are looking at can hold on to them for a long time.

Why You Picked the Wrong Franchise

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

wrongfranchiseI was floored recently when I talked to a friend of mine about the franchise she bought. You see this wasn't what  I would call your "typical" franchisee. Jane (as I will call her for the sake of this blog) has been in the franchise consulting business for 25 years. She has trained and taught both franchisees and franchisors about what to look for in a franchise, how to run a successful franchise business and what makes franchisees successful. 

After years of consulting and teaching, Jane had decided about a year ago to buy into a franchise. Unfortunately, it failed after less than a year. With all of her expertise, all of her knowledge and all of her coaching, she forgot to ask herself one of the most important questions, "Can I see myself in this business?" People tend to look at franchises by how much money they can make and the cost of the franchise without ever stopping to look at what their day-to-day lives will look like. 
 
Most of us are creatures of habit. We pretty much follow the same daily routines like planning vacations in advance, or trying to schedule our lives the best we can.  As humans we get into our "comfort zones". The problem is that when you become a franchise owner, your comfort zone becomes disrupted. That's what happened to Jane. She told me she was surprised at how hard it was to manage the people and how much time she spent working on her business. 
 
When Jane went from consulting to ownership, she experienced "where the rubber meets the road" if you will. Her comfort zone was disrupted, and the very things she had taught for 25 years  she could't apply to herself. Now, try to picture what your day will look like in the franchise that you are considering. Call existing franchisees, as they are your best source and can give you an accurate assessment. And don't forget to ask yourself, "can I see myself in this business?"

Top 5 Plus Reasons to Own a Franchise!

Posted by Janon Otto on Wed, Jun 13, 2018 @ 13:06 PM

5reasons.jpg"YOU ARE DOING WHAT!? That's the question we heard most when we told our friends and families that we were franchising a Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids," says Janon Otto CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Franchising - as well as a multi-unit franchisee for Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids. "They would also ask us what franchising is, and if we had gone crazy! Looking back, it's obvious that although there are franchises all over the place, most people have no idea what a franchise is. That's why the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids franchising toolkit (available below) is so important. It really helps explain what franchising is, as well as the advantages of owning your own franchise business."

Ultimately though, it's important to understand that a franchise is a business model. When a business owner decides to expand their business, they have options.  One of those options is to franchise.  Franchising allows others to own their own company yet use the name, logo, and systems of the franchise business owner (the franchisor). And although a franchisee is responsible for the success or failure of their franchise location, there are some significant advantages to franchise ownership. This includes the following...

1. The franchisee doesn't not have to come up with their own unique business idea!
2. The franchisee can use the systems that have already been developed and used successfully by others, which dramatically shortens the learning curve!
3. The franchisee gets training and support with a business partner who knows and cares about the success of their new business.
4. If the franchise system is progressive, the franchisee doesn't have to worry about ongoing costs or keeping up with trends needed to develop the concept further, as the franchisor is responsible for this. Meanwhile, as the system grows, the name brand recognition grows - thus growing the business of the franchisee!
5. Tools to use for advertising and graphic design / marketing is usually provided as well.

And there is a BIG bonus to being in touch with business owners who are all trying to do the same think you are is a wonderful thing - many heads are much better than one!

Shear Madness Franchising franchises Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salons. We have worked with franchise stores in providing franchisee support (in order to encourage continual growth and business success), and have sometimes seen the unexpected happen! When it does, we help by identifying and helping with challenges that might arise for franchisees. Additionally, we work to present options that can help prevent these events as well. As many franchise owners may not have opened a business before, having someone who can advise them is a significant advantage of franchise ownership!
