I love the expertise that Tom brings to the table. His interviews are informative and helpful to those of us looking into franchising. I'm listening to the interview with the AdvantaClean CEO as I type this and love the question and answers between he and the CEO. Wish I had found this podcast earlier.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Tom Scarda over the past year. He has been very informative to share his experience to me at no cost! His video's are a definate must see for those that want to gain more experience with franchising. Everyone that knows Tom Scarda knows he's a well trusted person. "The Magic of Choosing Uncertainty" is also a must read by Tom Scarda! Thank you Tom for spending time to sharey your experiences!
De-mystifies the Franchise Process….
Great resource for the beginner looking to start in the franchise arena. Tom brings the most complicated concepts into easily understood terms, and adds his own inside knowledge to fast track investors through the process.
