Preparing to do another period of social media detox... I wonder if I'll find it more difficult than I did two years ago. Maybe more rewarding? In any event, starting today I will be working on a minimum of a week-long personal social media detox. The only activity to be noticed will be promotion of Franchise Today which populates across various platforms. The same may be true for other business-related activity for Foundry and its brands. So, for at least a week, goodbye Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram & Pinterest. See ya soon enough, but for now I'm looking forward to giving myself a break!

This week on Franchise Today co-hosts Stan Friedman and Paul Segreto welcome to the show, Sabrina Wall, CEO and co-founder of Franchise Brokers Association. Sabrina discusses the franchise broker segment of franchising and its role with both candidates and franchisors. She also provides insight about founding the FBA in 2008 after working for a brokerage with unprofessional practices. Hearing many franchisors complain about her colleagues in the field, Sabrina was motivated to try to help codify best broker practices and offer training, regulation and certification.

Some of the most successful brands – in any sector – are franchises. In the restaurant business, they are household names. For many independent operators, franchising their concept is the so-called “Big Hairy Audacious Goal”. Before you take that leap, there are a lot of small and critical steps to consider.

Hearing about accidents, severe illnesses and death, especially to or affecting someone close to us, all have a way of stopping us in our tracks and making us think, ponder, reflect... What if it were me? Which, of course stimulates the thoughts of what else do I want to do while I'm still alive? What have I missed in my life? What have I put off, thinking there's plenty of time to get it done? What should I do differently now and in the future? Yes, extreme circumstances makes one think long and hard about these things. From my perspective it also has me reflecting upon the quote by Steve Jobs, to "have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" and why this is so difficult to do that it takes looking at something like one's own mortality to actually do so?

Think about how things have changed over the years in business and how it's been entrepreneurs who have responded and have taken to new heights what were widely recognized as traditional companies in traditional industries using traditional business models. Why? Because they saw change coming or that change was necessary, thought outside the box and acted swiftly and decisively to seize an opportunity. #Acceler8Success
