 The Key to a successful ground level franchise is Leadership and I liked what I learned (not only about the opportunity), but about Charles leadership style & philosophy.
 I was able to see his vision & what he is planning to achieve
 I like Charles “culture philosophy” of openness, collaboration, flexibility. He wants franchisee’s to have input and a voice (we are already discussing forming a franchisee board).
 I like that Charles has created what I call a Franchisee Friendly Biz Model. Large Protected Territories. Ability to really build my own business inside of a business. (Asset) and in an environment where I’m giving back.
 I believe this biz opportunity taps into my strengths and passions… –I like the idea of serving the community & raising money for important

–I like the customer base that I will be working with….schools, churches, parents, athletic directors –And this is complimentary to my current business, Franchise Intellect and being a Franchise Advisor.

Charles and I have discuss why Promoting Custom Branded Battery Assortment Packs makes sense, but I’d like to dive deeper into what we refer to as FUNDRAISING POWER THAT THE FUNDRAISING ORGANIZATION, ORGANIZER & VOLUNTEERS CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT REPRESENTING.
