Have you ever been asked what you do for a living?
Rhetorical question, yes, but one that is often asked in social gatherings, and even from customers and vendors who may not truly understand what you do.
Even though they know you are in the “franchise” business and own your own thing, there is mystery around exactly “what” you do.
The answer traditionally leads into the generalities of the “tactical” things.
Or maybe you are benign and say something like, “I own this store and manage people.”
Whatever the answer, the reality is, we rarely answer from the perspective of why we do what we do.
Consider when asked “what do you do,” does a sense of pride begin to swell inside.
If you don’t find this happening, perhaps we should talk about your exit strategy.
I suspect, however, that most of us, if we pay close attention, find we come from a place of pride and passion.
This is a natural experience for many who go into business for themselves.
