Play to Your Strengths: Utilizing Visionaries and Operators in Business – Michael Valente

“You shouldn’t stamp out ideas in entrepreneurship. That’s what we’re all here for. So everybody approaches it with a different skill, with a different background, with a different history, and their ideas around what we’re doing are all different. And so we welcome change. We welcome innovation. We wanna hear about new ideas that we’ve never thought about, and it’s our job as a franchise or to sit through those ideas and determine, okay, what do we think is the best path forward? That’s literally my job. What are the initiatives, and then what’s the best path? What are we gonna work on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. But a lot of that innovation and those ideas do come from listening to our existing franchisees, our partners, to determine what they see in here? Because I’m not in the field every day anymore. So, like, and the market shifts and they change. So what do we need to do to stay current? And we get a lot of that from our existing franchisee.”

The Role of Visionaries and Integrators in Driving Success – Kevin Oldham

“There’s a good book that I’ve mentioned on this podcast before, and I don’t know if you’ve read it. It’s called Rocket Fuel, Wickman. And he’s also the inventor of traction, an operating system that you can install into businesses. And listeners, if you hear us crazy visionaries, you’re hearing a common theme. Because typically, it’s the visionary CEO that’s a guest on here. And the most successful franchisors have an Integrator is typically the yin to the yang, the fire to the water, the the process and make stuff happen person versus the person coming by with the grandiose visions on where we’re gonna take the organization. And that really is the key to a successful business. Like, I believe that It’s really challenging to do too much.”
