Al Simon bought his Sandler Training franchise on September 10th, 2001. The next day, the Twin Towers were attacked and the country shut down. Despite the immense uncertainty of the time, Al managed to grow a successful franchise that has survived and thrived to this day.
As our country once again faces monumental challenges and incredible uncertainty, we ask Al about the lessons he learned in 2001, how he navigated the recession of 2008 and his message for current and prospective franchisees today in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic.
The webinar recording was hosted by Franchise Business Review founder, Eric Stites.
