    Default I've lost Jim's access workload

    My workload from Jim's mowing has virtually dried up during the last 6 weeks,they called me to say that lead fees were going from what i was paying to the same rate as there franchisee contractors pay.It made no sense why they did that until listening to a TV news report last night.

    The recent out of work crowd with no income are buying any franchise service or independent business that's available with there super so they can get a regular income.
    So there's going to be a influx of new people entering self employment and here currently it's very hard to find a lawn mowing round for sale if that's what you're looking for.
    I was talking to a mowing contractor recently who was getting out and going into retirement,he said he advertised his round for sale and within a week a franchise bought the round without checking the round and paid the asking price.
    Things may start to tighten up as the year goes on for everyone in business.

    But the franchiser's will still make their money
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you
