Business with Beers

Owning a business does not need to be complicated.One of the biggest reasons I love franchising is that it simplifies the path to business ownership.To help simplify business, every topic falls into 1 of 4 categories:1) People2) Sales & Marketing3) Operations4) Back OfficeThis applies whether you are just starting or running a $100M/year businessThat's the beauty of simplicity.  We can cut through all the fancy terms & technology.Simplicity gives you clarity. Clarity gives you powerConnect with Brian on Twitter @brianbeers
