    SO MANY FAILED & FAILING BUSINESSES
    http://www.jimpenmanthetruth3.com/page3.php
    Jim’s Group Division Record [i]

    18 failures out of 52, and no doubt more to come.
    A 35% failure rate- definitely not a record to be proud of, and flies in the face of media statements made by Penman regarding failures.
    · Alarms 2000 – 2005
    · Appliances 2001 – 2008
    · Concreting 2003 – 2005
    · Driving School 2000 – 2007
    · Earthworks 2004 – 2005
    · Garden Kerbing 2003 – 2005
    · Graffiti Solution 2007 – 2008
    · Health E Air 2003 – 2008
    · Irrigation 2002 – 2006
    · Mobile BBQ 1999 – 2005
    · Mobile Hairdressing 2003 – 2005
    · Mobile Mechanics 1999 - 2000
    · Pergolas 2003 – 2012
    · Pool Care – Retail 2003 – 2009
    · Preggi Bellies 2002 – 2004
    · Sand Soil Gravel 2001 – 2002
    · Wardrobes 1999 – 2006
    · Windscreens 2005 - 2012

    Plus other short lived divisions which have not been included in the Disclosure: Barterbanc, Dingoes, Pet Enclosures, Locksmiths, Removals, Pest Control, Beach House, Balloons, Roller shutters and Bath Resurfacing.
    Some of which you will no doubt will see revisited for a second go in 2013.

    A true failure rate of a staggering 45%

    In the last 10 years well over 3500 franchisees have left the Mowing division alone (an attrition rate of well over 100%).
    WHY?
    Mowing franchisees stay on average for only 4.5 years.
    WHY?
    Only 6 Divisions are showing any real growth.
    WHY?

    I feel sorry for carnage he has left on the way, all the hard working mums and dads that got sucked into pushing his barrow.
