  • I would simply ensure you are working as hard as possible to increase sales and ask for any training or coachig they may have available. :) Good luck!

  • get prepared, start looking for another job or save up some $$ for unemployment times. Expect them to tell you they're helping with sales then you not meet their quota and they let you go in a few months

  • Depending on the state, you can be fired for NO reason. I wouldn't trust what someone else says, she could want your job.

  • Well it certainly doesn't look good. I would start looking; I do wish you luck and hopefully it won't happen.

  • What are you doing to raise the sales of your store?

    Jeremy's mom, a franchise owner can get fired, pretty easily, actually.

    I would create an action plan to increase sales. Don't make excuses, but do have specific examples of sales increasing ideas that your old boss wouldn't let you try. She may have heard that they are going to give you a certain amount of time, but will fire you if you don't produce results.

    I have always wondered about that. I have only known of one franchise owner who had his business taken away but that was because the Health Department shut him down.

  • I sure hope not. It sure does stink having to worry about whether or not your job is on the line. Our life was completely different two years ago before my Husband was laid off. He's now making half of what he used to make. I'm now working from home to help us out. Have you ever thought about working from home to make some extra money? I am a stay at home Mommy to my 3 year old son, and 19 month old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory! Weekly pay! Free website, training, and unlimited support!!
    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!
