Passion Is Key To A Successful Business
Passion. Passion alone can make your business successful. As an entrepreneur, you are a passionate person. For why would anyone invest such incredible amounts of time and energy on something they have no REAL desire to do? If you do such a thing, then it's just bullshit. You have built an unreal, superficial way work environment and based on that you most likely are not very satisfied in what you do.
Being passionate means having the inner drive, desires to make your goals and achievements real. An entrepreneur is passionate at heart. He/She loves everything they do and when they work, they do wonders for the world and it shows. Look around at some of these businesses that we are all familiar with. Bath and Body Works, Jamba Juice, Bill Gates, Friendster and so on. They are all fellow entrepreneurs and they are all obviously very successful.
What's made them successful? Let's look at these basic factors. When it all comes down to it, they had an idea. They grew their idea to fruitation and then over time, why just look at what has happen. Turning basically nothing into something is worth some credit. They provide services we as consumers want. But how did it all begin in the first place? With the idea of course. They took the idea and they ran with it. But an entreprenur is passionate about their idea. Why, if these people did not have this passion within them I am sure these businesses would never be existing today.
A passion for making your business happen is what drives the entrepreneurial business. It's a known fact. Passion is a sense of personal power. It is needed for your fuel. It is needed for when you are facing tough challenges, passion is there to help you through. It shows. Just look at the business models of some of these above mentioned companies. A lot of their strategies and successes were based on passions. A passion to grow the idea to fruitation, a passion to open up more businesses, a passion for their customers and so on. When you do your research and break the business models into detail a simply fundamental element that lies behind all these inner workings of the company is based on passion alone.
Without this inner drive, the want, the need for your company, the foundation is nonexistent. Every single successful entrepreneur has had a passion for their idea. And depending how much you have within yourself to grow this passion, mold this type of passion and show it off to the world will determine ones level of attainable success. I can't think of one business that was built without some source of passion. Can you?

Why Do Franchisors have Exclusive Territories
The reason we Franchisors call it an exclusive territory is because we will not sell that area again to another franchisee. That is your area to market and to conquer and to generally obtain as much market penetration as possible. If you are a home-based business or mobile franchise then this is a serious issue. You can put as many service units in your area can support and try to make the most reasonable profit you can per each service unit you put into your exclusive territory. Most franchisors charge a percentage of the gross income and probably make a little off every service unit you buy, so they want you to expand.

Covenants Not To Compete: Another Franchise Quandary
Imagine that you have operated a successful franchise business for the past several years. Your franchise agreement's term expires in the near future and you are contemplating whether renewing the agreement would be a wise business decision. In the past couple of years it has become all too apparent that you are receiving little, if any, benefit or assistance from your franchisor. Yet, you continue to pay the franchisor thousands of dollars each year in royalties and other fees. You therefore decide that it would make better "business sense" to operate independently after expiration of your franchise term. After all, you are very familiar with the business and have worked extremely hard in developing and establishing a solid client base to enable you to continue running a profitable and prosperous operation.

Six Sigma for Small Business
It is not surprising that some people may perceive Six Sigma as being only for large corporations. Major corporations such as Allied Signal, Black & Decker, Dow Chemical, Dupont, Federal Express, General Electric, Johnson and Johnson, Kodak, Motorola, Sony, and Toshiba have all rolled out Six Sigma efforts and achieved outstanding results. Yet, it is incorrect to think that Six Sigma process improvement results can only be achieved by huge organizations. Small businesses can also succeed in implementing Six Sigma and reap the process improvement benefits that Six Sigma provides.
