    Episode Highlights

    What Is Franchising? 

    It is a way for anybody who has a dream and wants a business, to own a business. 

    How Do You Know What’s The Right Fit?



    What can you afford?

    How much are you willing to invest?

    Fear of making money; fear of not making enough money

    What are your income expectations?



    Being A Franchisor- 



    Consider why you wish to franchise your company?

    Do the pros outweigh the cons of becoming a franchisor?



    What To Look For When Trying To Identify A Franchise To Work With 



    Franchises are awarded, not sold. 

    One needs to focus on building a relationship, which includes:





    Ensuring that the culture of the company matches the goals of the individual pursuing the franchise. 

    Ensuring that you are taking on a franchise that you will be passionate about. 

    Are you comfortable going out and networking your business? 



    Wealth That Can Be Created In A Franchise

    When we talk about wealth, coming into a franchise that you have leveraged, that you are not buying yourself a job or replacing a job for this business. It’s through the leverage of technology, people, a brand, marketing systems, that allow owners to come in as CEOs working on their businesses rather than in their businesses.

    Curtis shares that he has been in business for 35 years. Passionate about his clients and helping them save money and be able to live their best life. He also shares that he is a third-generation business owner. At the age of 7, his father gave him business advice- “You’ll never make any money working for someone else”.

    Four Main Objectives For Financial Management

    Build Maximum Wealth-



    Most people believe the key to investing is finding better rates - you will need to take on more risks. 

    You will first need to create maximum efficiency with your money.

    Grade yourself from 1-10 how you deal with cash flow, in your personal life and your business. Track your inflow and your outflow.



    Wealth Transfers- 

    Here are some questions you need to consider:



    How is your mortgage paid?

    How do you find retirement plans?



     Retirement plans defer taxes, more accurately they postpone the tax calculation.



     Ask yourself the question, “Do I think that in the future will my taxes be higher, lower, or the same?”

    How do you pay for major capital purposes(anything you can’t pay for in full with monthly cash flow)? 

    How will you fund college tuition?

    You will need liquidity- looking for mass marketing things



     

    Create A System That Will Transfer The Wealth That You Created



    We want people to create legacies for generations to come. 



     

    Have A Plan That Works Under All Circumstances



    You have to diversify your way of making money and value the market space. 

    You need to play defence - review your insurance, for example, life insurance. 

    As you're working and saving, what is your ultimate goal?

    The key is to focus on buying assets that you can control. 



    Five Key Areas In Financial Management



    Save 15% of your gross income

    Maximum Protection

    Legacy

    Establish Goals

    The Velocity Method - buying assets that generate investment incomes

    Episode Highlights

    Who is Jeffrey Shaw? 



    Jeffrey shares that as a child he was extremely withdrawn, that he was afraid because at that time the world seemed like “this big scary place”.

    He pointed out that he was the youngest of three boys who were the classic masculine with a domineering father figure and expressed how different he was from them. 

    He pointed out that while he had all those emotions, fears, and feeling misplaced, some part of him knew that he was “awesome”.   

    He expresses that we as humans are far more complex than we give ourselves credit for, but limit ourselves because of circumstances.

    He also shares that there is no division between our business experiences and life experiences; they overlap and they both make us who we are. 



     

    What Is The Self-Employed Ecosystem?



    Maintaining that balance between our personal lives, our inner and outer world. When people can do something with their lives they grow further. You already have everything you need inside yourself to be great. 

    Largely, the self-employed ecosystem is about who we are and personal development.

    There are three essential components to being successful from being self-employed:





    Personal Development 

    Business Strategies

    Daily Habits and Mindsets 





    What the self-employed ecosystem does is that it creates the environment to make your success almost inevitable, and puts everything in place. 

    The goal is to control what you can and manage what you can. 



     

    What Does A Growth Mindset Look Like? 



    Jeffrey shares that from a personal development standpoint a growth mindset is all about unblocking, as we are trying to increase capacity.

    When looking at the growth mindset daily habits perspective, they are less about unblocking and more about moving forward. 

    Jeffrey points out that he teaches his clients how to properly set their intentions as most people have not been taught a system on how to set intentions in their life in a way that really works. 

    He shares that he teaches intentions through a system called “From-To”, where you highlight where you wish to go from, to. This allows us to reduce vague intentions to have more clear set actionable intentions for ourselves.

All throughout his school years, he was naturally interested in the internet and building websites. He mentioned that at the age of 11 years old he did not have the full vision to build Youtube.
