So how do you get a franchise that will make you money like KFC did for Colonel Sanders?
You can buy one. Yes, every year, in various cities there are ‘Franchise Fairs’. These are like JOB FAIRS, but the owners of the large franchises – like KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Chik- Fil-A, Dunkin Doughnuts, Hertz, and Ace Hardware. You go and you can actually talk to REAL PEOPLE from each company and they will tell you what you need to start up with them. In some cases, the investment is really going to cost you over $500,000.00, and in others it will be far less. But what you will wind up with is a well-known brand that people recognize and will buy.
There are drawbacks to buying a franchise, of course. You will owe money. You cannot change your inventory or menu without permission. You have to have sales when the company tells you to have sales…and so on. You will ‘own’ your business and you will make money – but, in reality, you will be more of a ‘general manager’ because you have to follow someone else’s rules.
What if your idea is to START a franchise? Once again if you go on line and ask ‘How do I start a Franchise’, you will get the same answers as before. Someone may even say it is impossible to start a franchise – you have to buy one. And that is wrong.
A Franchise is started by any smart person who runs a business according to a plan When that business is doing well enough to expand to new locations, that smart business person develops the new location and ‘sells’ it as a franchise to a trusted employee or a favorite customer. If you are careful to develop your customer base, develop your brand and market your business model, you will be able to not only create a new business, but also franchise it for additional profit!
When you invite your family to your house, you prepare some type of refreshment, or even a meal to show your love and concern for them. If you are not a good cook, you may ask other family members to bring their favorite dish, or you might call a catering company and have them prepare and deliver the food. If you are a good cook, you may decide to make it all yourself, just to discover your favorite recipe tastes ‘funny’ when you expand it from 6 people to 16.
When you hold an event, or a fundraiser, though, it is not so easy to get enough refreshments. Sometimes a catering company will donate food, and sometimes everyone in the organization will contribute, but most of the time one or two people are ‘elected’ for the refreshment duty, and if you are one of those people, you have experienced the type of panic attack that comes from realizing that you have a limited budget to feed a lot of hungry volunteers.
We have all been helpers at that ‘Event’ where we were given peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a bottle of water for lunch and we were happy, and we have all been at the event where there are chickens roasting when we arrive and we have also been happy. We all know the experience of being finished and saying, “Let’s do this again next year!” only to have someone else say “Yes, BUT we have to put someone else in charge of food.”And what about those annual events that we all sponsor? The ones where we collect food and then cook meals for those less fortunate? Many times, I have found myself making a lot of food in small batches because cooking big batches of food takes special skill. It is not enough to double or triple the recipe, because the extra ingredients affect the cooking.(How many cans of beets is it possible to sneak into a batch of pasta sauce?). One does not double the hot peppers simply because one doubles the amount of meat.
There are not that many guides that will help you when you must cook for large events. When you do, remember many churches and community halls have fully functional kitchens just to put on events that require refreshments. You can walk into that kitchen with a list of carefully budgeted supplies and make everything from pasta dinners to dozens of pies without over or under seasoning and keeping right to your budget..
Imagine financial independence.

One cannot help but wonder, “Has whole world has gone crazy?” And as I sit here and I look around I see madness erupting constantly. I see the most reasonable people suddenly taking offense at things they used to ignore and call ‘too trivial to bother with’. Reasonableness, compassion and love are being attacked by sick, obsessive insanity and hate. It is as if Lucifer, himself has opened the gates of Perdition wide, and freed his underlings and demons of dark thought to prey upon us and turn us into demons also. Why else would soldiers kill police? What else would make Christians murder in a church or cause a Moslem to bomb mosques? Mothers are selling their children to drug dealers, and old people are abused by their caregivers.
I cannot keep listening to the silly people point to these happenings and say : It only happened because they are not doing God’s will.
Bad things are not ‘God’s will’. In case you missed it, ‘God is Love’. The EVIL that is happening with increasing regularity has a lot to do with darkness of the soul and Satan and nothing to do with God. Lucifer is the trickster and always tries to use seemingly righteous things as a disguise and shield; it is our job to defeat it. It is not always easy to see evil, much less overcome it and send it back to its place. Yet, once you remember these “Tools of Faith” you will be well armed to move forward and share the messages of peace and love
Mark 12:31 - The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. ‘There is no commandment greater than this.”
Luke 6:35 – But love your enemies, do good to them and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High.
Romans 13:10 – Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Ephesians 4:2 – Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love.
1 John 4:18-19 – There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4:7 – Dear Friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Proverbs 10:12 – Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
1 John 4:8 – Whoever does not love, does not know God because God is love.
Let us all take these to heart and start over and start healing with peace, goodness and love.
Professionals like Doctors, Lawyers and CPA’s, have almost always had the option to work from home. Home daycare workers and tutors have also had this option because it allows them away to spend time with their own children or grandparents. But, until recently, most people did not have the ability to work from home and actually hope to make a livable wage.
But, why would YOU want to work from home?
Well, if it is hard for you to get around, or you are the primary caregiver for an elderly parent, you face a daily struggle to keep your family in balance. It is even harder if you face a hundred mile drive to get to work, if you live in a part of town that is virtually unsafe to work in, or you have special needs yourself.
You may even feel that your job presents challenges to your faith or lifestyle because your co-workers have work habits and attitudes that are totally in conflict with yours. Up until now, you have had to pray for strength and guidance to get you through your difficulties because working from home has not been possible unless you were a member of a huge company or organization that encourages ‘telework’
