Jim Lager: Why Smart Franchisees Fail is a writing and publishing collaboration between successful former franchisee Jim Lager and IdeaFarm Press.
Jim Lager’s experience as a franchisee spans four decades and three national franchise brands.
Lager believes that the common wisdom, advice and myths currently promoted to franchisees and prospective franchisees ranges from inadequate and out-of-touch to dangerously false.
Now an independent business owner, Jim Lager wishes to give back by sharing his hard-won insights and experiences gained through his dramatic successes and failures operating franchise businesses.
Jim Lager: Why Smart Franchisees Fail is currently a series of short, mini-articles hosted here and available for download and sharing. Eventually, Mr. Lager envisions providing these insights in book, video and multimedia formats as well.
