I’m hoping now that I’ve moved, things are a bit calmer….I just wanted to write down some things that come to mind to begin working on. Going forward, I believe we should work from a business perspective just the 3 of us (include Lawrence and anyone else as you see fit — as long as everyone is in agreement), in a confidential manner so as to avoid disagreements and setbacks. Set these business meeting on a monthly basis. Once we have agreed on the agenda and goals, have an open dialogue with the franchisees and core group as part of the regular meetings….
