Successful businessman turned franchisee and motivational speaker, Basil Plews, reveals the secrets of buying and running a successful franchised business in his new book, â€˜The Franchise Wayâ€™.
Published by Authorhouse (ISBN 9781438994550; price Â£11.99), the book not only explains how to find, buy and run a franchised business but also explores the character, talents and motivation of successful franchisees.
â€œLots of people watch â€˜reality TVâ€™ shows and feel that, if they got a chance, they could be successful and live their dream,â€ Plews said.
â€œThey feel that they have a talent but they might not have the skill set necessary for success in the business world. Thatâ€™s where buying a franchise could help them because they become part of a team and buy in to a brand and a system.â€
Plewsâ€™ first book â€“ â€˜The Complete Franchise Bookâ€™ (ISBN 09548883-8-3), published last year â€“ is already out of print, so Plews has produced an updated version to take account of the economic changes that have happened in that time. Read on.
