My first appointment after the big pow wow was with a crusty ball-busting kind of guy. I let him trap me into holding our meeting at Starbucks. Bad move. He just was out for a ego message. However, he asked me for some references in his area and this started to reveal a serious flaw in this so called franchise. The letters of reference they provided us were written on a typewriter circa 1993. Nothing newer and none of the network of global franchisees had anything better or newer. It wasn't like he was in some obscure industry either. The company website was no help either. Old stale references. What exactly did I pay for? Oh yes the "magic words, the Script!"
