Plummeting sales. PR disasters. Piling debts. Lawsuits. Layoffs. These are just a few of the many potential tough situations an entrepreneur might face — and that's just on the business side. Illness, family deaths, relationship issues and other personal problems can weigh heavily on a business owner's mind and make it really difficult to carry on with day-to-day operations.

You may not have faced a significant hardship while running your business yet, or perhaps you've made it through one (or more) and wish you'd handled things differently. Either way, it pays to be prepared. Here are six steps you can take to soften the blow if — or, more likely, when — you find yourself facing tough times.

Ontario Home Inspector Goes Above And Beyond

on .

WHITBY, ON – At 1:00 am on the night of August 26, Pedro Giorgana, our Whitby Ontario franchisee, received a distressing call from a frantic client. The client had discovered that the family cat was missing, and was convinced it was trapped somewhere within the walls of their home. Not knowing who else to phone for help, the client contacted Mr. Giorgana.

Without a moment’s hesitation, Pedro grabbed his infrared camera and headed over to the scene. Using thermal imaging, he was able to locate the cat within the walls of the home. Thermal imaging works by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by an object. This means that a warm object (like a wayward feline) will show up brightly against a cool background (like drywall and wood).

Once the missing cat was successfully located using the infrared camera, Pedro was able to determine where he could safely cut to rescue the trapped pet. After a stressful ordeal, the cat was retrieved and returned to its family without further incident. Pedro was even able to help the homeowners locate the opening that the cat had used to enter the walls, and plans were quickly made to patch up the hole as soon as possible.

We’d like to commend Mr. Giorgana for his quick thinking and willingness to help. It’s not every day that a home inspector gets called in for a midnight cat rescue!

Regional Director to Expand Home Inspection Offices into Poland, Slovenia and Croatia

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) will soon be knocking on the doors of many more homeowners seeking its services throughout Europe.

The Pompano Beach-based franchisor, recognized as the world’s most professional home inspection company, announced today that it has signed an agreement to launch an aggressive European expansion strategy that will dramatically increase the company’s footprint beyond its current presence in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. 

Under the agreement, Tomas Simon, who now co-owns and operates the company’s regional office in Czech Republic and Slovakia under the brand name A Buyer’s Choice Home Experts, can market the franchise to other motivated, small business-oriented people in Poland, Slovenia and Croatia.

“Through market analysis and ongoing discussions with key players in the local real estate market, we’ve identified an incredible need for professionally certified home inspections in Eastern Europe,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of ABCHI. “With Tomas on our team, I know he is going to lead the efforts to fill the void.”

The opportunity to help others succeed and support the local economy is what Simon welcomes the most about the investment he has made in expanding the brand throughout Eastern Europe. Prior to becoming the regional director, Simon enjoyed management roles and will bring his strong leadership skills to this new endeavor.

“When you buy a franchise, you want to feel good about the support and guidance you are going to receive. This is the point I feel strongest about, and it will be a focus of mine as I work with new franchisees in the region,” said Simon. “I am passionate about coaching others on how to get their business up and running, build sales and achieve success.”

Already, ABCHI is one of the world’s largest home inspection franchises with nearly 200 branches throughout Canada and the United States. Additionally, the company has grown into Chile and New Zealand. 

Redfern started the home inspection business in Canada in 2007, remarkably turning it into the largest home inspection franchise in that country after only two years of franchising. His track record of success stems from his remarkable attention to detail. Every ABCHI inspector is insured and certified above licensing standards, going beyond what the government requires of independent home inspectors.

US Builders Complain they Can't Find Skilled Carpenters.

(Reuters) - Where have all the carpenters gone? Home builders across the United States are scratching their heads for an answer as they struggle to assemble crews to keep up with growing demand.

In some parts of the country, the shortage of skilled carpenters - especially framers - is so bad that builders cannot get projects off the ground and it is taking as much as two months longer than normal to complete a project.

How Working with a Professional Home Inspector Can Help Close Deals

on .

As an agent and broker for more than a decade, I met many home inspectors. Too often, I was stuck doing damage control after their walk-throughs with potential homebuyers; I was forced to cover the mess a quick-mouthed inspector speaking in hyperbole had made during an inspection. In no way am I saying that all home inspectors are incompetent or shock jocks. There are independent operators who do a stand-up job. However, the inconsistency is notable and troubling. Many inspectors simply don’t understand the nuances and difficulties Realtors face in all the facets of their customer relationships when working to close transactions. This observed inconsistency led me to launch a company aimed at training inspectors to not just meet and exceed licensing standards for home inspections, but to also understand real estate terminology, working in concert with real estate agents to meet the crucial needs of homebuyers.
