It’s the Bottom of the 9th! 

With only a few weeks to run until the end of the year, for many business leaders, it’s starting to feel like the bottom of the (never-ending) 9th! 

It’s also about this time your focus on winning the game shifts to a focus of just finishing the game, win or lose. 

And in one of those moments a very long time ago I developed a simple process that I follow to make sure I am in check with my game, and remain focused on the prize.

 So, If you are feeling a little tired, burnt-out, or just not sure how to keep on pitching until the end of the year – Here’s 9 steps to get through the bottom of the 9thread more 


I hope to talk to many, many of you before the year’s end. Wishing you individually, and the franchise industry collectively, a strong finish!

More soon…


P.S. If you’re attending the unique and wonderful, Franchise Operations Performance Summit, I’ll see you in December! If not, have you heard about it? This meeting has been uniquely designed for Franchise CEOs, COOs, and VPs of Operations to explore important operations issues with their peers in an intimate learning environment. It’s on December 3-5 at the beautiful Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach, FL. Check it out! (And there’s an early-bird rate still in effect.)
