The Best Franchise in Child Hair Care!

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Sep 13, 2018 @ 11:09 AM

francomparesmfaward

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.
