Hey hello there, how’s it going?
I know I have promised to write more, but I have been busy. I know we are all, but I need to get better about keeping you up to date.
Since we last talked, I decided on a cell phone. I went with the Motorola Q9h Global from AT&T. I wanted 3G and the ability to use it around the world. I signed up for a low minute plan to begin, but I am sure I will be adding to my minutes.
Sorry for the lack of updates, this thing called summer is getting in my way. I had another talk with the general manager for franchise relations on Friday to get more of my questions answered. We are moving forward to my purchase by mid-July.
I am now spending time researching mobile phone options. I have been leaning to the new iPhone coming out on July 11th. It is either that or a Moto Q. I need to go hold them both in my hand before making a decision. Of course with Bluetooth, it is not that critical how it feels, but sometimes my ear piece is not charged. I am just very interested in 3G instead of EDGE.
Today I headed down to the county to pay $60 to obtain a county business license. They have our company name and home address. They also stamped it with “HOME OCCUPATION”. I feel better knowing my home is occupied. I wonder if the troop numbers will increase.
I continue to watch the price of oil and the downward plunge of the stock market and wonder if we are making the correct decision. The economic news continues to be dire and here we are about to open a business that deal with discretionary income. It is funny though just about every connection I talk to is thinking about, has gone, or is getting ready to go on a cruise.
Today was Father’s Day, and the family and I headed up to the neighborhood pool. We spent about three hours playing in the water, snacking on some club grub and enjoying the sun. One of the girls that went to pre-K with my daughter was up there with her sister and dad. Her dad happens to be a VP of field operations for a rather large partnership of Domino’s Pizza franchises.
Yay! We have been approved. Now I start the first step in this journey. It is off the UPS Store to get a mailbox with a physical address. I don’t want someone unhappy with a cruise showing up at our doorstep.
Congratulations, I’m pleased to inform you that you’ve been approved to purchase a franchise.
Further to our most recent conversations this approval will likely be used in your purchase of an existing franchise. If you decide not to purchase an existing you may proceed to complete the process for a new franchise.
This approval is conditional upon you entering into a current franchise agreement within 45 days.
