    Scott Greenberg helps franchisees improve their leadership skills and grow their business. He’s the author of the book The Wealthy Franchisee: Game-Changing Steps to Becoming a Thriving Franchise Superstar. Below are some interview excerpts.



    Currie:  What are the myths about why some franchisees succeed?



    Greenberg:  It’s such an important thing to talk about because everyone is looking at the top franchisees to replicate. The problem is we make a lot of assumptions about them. Honestly, a lot of wealthy franchisees don’t know why they’re successful. I was hosting an awards banquet for a franchise system, and their best franchisees were on stage. I asked each one: “What did you do last year that made you succeed?” They said, we do a lot of marketing, we treat our employees well, we go out in the community. I mean, who isn’t doing those things, that’s not the secret to success. That’s the prerequisite…



    Every franchise brand has stories of people who took over struggling locations and turned them around. So wealthy franchisees buy very mediocre locations, but they make them great. So, if you have a great location, it certainly can help. You want to fish where the fish are, right? You want to be close to the right demographic, but sometimes those locations aren’t available. So a good enough location is good enough, and wealthy franchisees prove this every day. That’s the first myth.



    The second myth is that they’re slaves to their business. These great franchisees I interviewed take vacations and go to their daughter’s volleyball games, and they’re home for dinner. They don’t work hard as much as they work smart. So that is a myth that they have to be slaves to their business.



    The final myth is that you have to have a passion for the business. I ran edible arrangements franchises. We did very well, but I have to confess; I’m not especially excited by fruit. What I did like is the celebration aspect, helping people celebrate important occasions. I think you have to appreciate and love something about the business, but it doesn’t mean you have to be passionate about frozen yogurt or pest control to be successful. There’s a lot of myths that are out there, and if we can replicate the right things – we can get results!



    Currie:  Tune in to hear about the main things wealthy franchisees do that enable them to succeed!

    John Quattrocchi, owns a CPA practice. and offers end to end accounting and tax services to franchisors and franchisees. Quattrocchi was interviewed by Franchise Business Radio Host and Certified Franchise Consultant, Pamela Currie, and explains financial terms and tax advantages for business owners.



    Here are some interview excerpts.



    Currie: Explain what is meant by gross revenue versus net?



    Quattrocchi: Gross revenue is total sales. The total amount of money you bring in the house. Net profit is how much is left after paying all your bills and your expenses. Let me say this about total sales and net profit; it is important to understand that franchisors usually set their royalties based on the franchisee’s total sales. So, the franchisor gets paid off of the top line and then the business owner (franchisee) gets to keep and profit off of the bottom line number, which is the net or the cashflow number.



    Currie: How does a franchise business owner receive benefits and tax advantages?

    Quattrocchi: When an individual becomes a business owner, he instantly morphs into two people. He is the owner that has to be compensated and he’s actually the employee in the  business that has to be compensated. So, he might have an officer's  salary where he takes out a salary and compensation there. And then he gets paid on the bottom line profit. But in reality, there are other certain advantages that we may take on the tax side. I like to divide tax expenses into three basic categories. There’s the “Ordinary and Necessary Category”, such as rent, utilities, repairs, salaries, and wages. Then we have what I call the “Hybrid Expenses”, that we all have as individuals, but because you are self-employed, you might be able to deduct some or most of those expenses. That would be things like your car expenses, cell phone, maybe your computers, your internet at home and things of that nature that you use partially or mostly using in your business. Then we have other tax advantage situations that I put in a third category simply because they are tax deductible. The most basic would be putting in a retirement plan. Retirement plan for a self-employed guy is basically where you take money out of one pocket and you put it in another, and you get a tax break for it. Obviously, you can’t use that money until you retire. It’s a tremendous tax saving.

    Amazon Storefronts, Shop Exclusively from U.S. Small Businesses Interview with Gene Marks on Georgia Business Radio

    Amazon Storefronts, Shop Exclusively from U.S. Small Businesses Interview with Gene Marks on Georgia Business Radio

    Amazon Storefronts, Shop Exclusively from U.S. Small Businesses Interview with Gene Marks on Georgia Business Radio



    Today we have Gene Marks, Washington Post columnist author and financial expert joining us to talk about how supporting the U.S. small businesses online is an important concept for not just Americans and local business, but for the entire community and now it's even easier when shopping online to buy from us small businesses with a new store called Amazon Storefronts. Making life so easy these days, thank you to Amazon. This is a store to shop exclusively from U.S. small businesses, which is very passionate and close to our hearts at the Pro Business Channel, helping support those small and medium-sized businesses.



    We certainly have a business expert joining us on today's show, Gene Marks writes daily for the Washington Post as I mentioned focusing on issues affecting the business community also writes weekly columns for Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Fox Business, The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur.com and if we can afford him on the Pro Business Channel. Gene this could be a regular series.



    [00:01:12] Yeah, I'll have my agent call your agent. Well as soon as we get an agent we'll take that call. Yeah. All right. So, these columns are read by hundreds of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses owners around the country.



    [00:01:25] So this is definitely in everyone's wheelhouse for this episode. Gene has written six books on business management specifically geared towards again, those small and medium-sized companies.  Here to analyze and provide details about this new digital storefront is author and as I mentioned business expert Gene Marks. Gene before we get into this, you’ve written six books.



    [00:01:47] So what's your most popular and best known or of those six books? By the way these books are sold on Amazon.com.  My bestselling book is, “In God We Trust, Everyone Else Pays Cash” it’s a bunch of cash flow advice and tips, geared toward small business owners. Okay, and we may give a teaser at the end of this segment are about your next book maybe in the work.



    [00:02:12] So let's jump into this topic, tell our listeners why it's important for shoppers to buy from us businesses, even when they're shopping online. I mean, well Rich, you know that she talked about this on your show as well. I mean there are hundreds of thousands of small businesses in in Georgia, you know, these are businesses that that provide many jobs to the state and nationally, you know, small businesses provide more than half of the jobs.



    [00:02:40] We know that small businesses are a huge part of the US economy and there are a lot of people out there that want to support small businesses and you know their government programs that do that some companies are doing that as well and. You mentioned in your introduction. I mean Amazon stepped up this week as well and they're launching something called storefronts and you know, what the whole backstory to store funds riches that you know Amazon if you buy something from Amazon, it's more likely that it's coming from a small Merchant.



    [00:03:12] Half of the products that sold on the site comes from a small business or a merchant and there's more than a million small businesses in the us alone that are selling their products on Amazon. So, Amazon sort of said, you know what let's bring some of these guys together. They're starting off at 20,000 small businesses selling more than a million products under storefronts.



    [00:03:36] You and I or anybody else that wants make sure that when we’re buying something the same as usual, but we want to make sure it's going to a U.S. based small business. We can do that from their store front site and that's just an amazing concept.



    [00:03:57] So this is not bricks-and-mortar, right? Absolutely, correct.
