“Tim Hortons Just Tastes Better” – Said The Burger King

5 Dec BK

Timmys

Time for a coffee break. If you haven’t heard, Burger King is merging with Tim Hortons, and moving their new head office to Canada. This’ll make Timmy’s the double-double king & BK the 3rd largest fast food company on EARTH.

Yes, a Canadian company will be the third biggest on the planet, Eh!

Currently, the top ten biggest fast food companies are all American. Do some research on the story for yourself.

A Whopper Of A Lesson?

Immediately I see a handful of valuable gems, shiny pearls of wisdom. Wrap your buns around these:

  1. Get educated on franchise models, and understand the economic concept of leverage. Clearly the strategy works, successful businesses apply it daily. We could all learn a thing or two.
  2. Stop hating on your self employed, entrepreneur, independent business friends who own a franchise, because they work hard, deserve your support and your buck. Stop supporting big corporations when your buddy with the same product, service or in the same industry is just steps away and would love to help.
  3. Plus, if they do it well it’s a payday that not only supports their family, but most often gives YOU more time, saves YOU money, reduces YOUR stress, or all the above. And, supporting your buddy boosts our country’s economy because in a time when big biz is downsizing, small businesses are expanding and spending.
  4. Discover ways to expand outside your local marketplace. Because there just might be a bigger or more delicious opportunity for you elsewhere if you just peek outside your box.
  5. Canadians have guts. Sometimes they’re deeper inside because of the wind chill, but we still have ‘em up there somewhere.
  6. Tim Horton started with ONE doughnut shop. And because he understood lesson number one above, in three years he turned his shop into a multi-million dollar franchise system. Fast forward 50 years later and surprise- one of the largest fast food companies on the planet.

BKChew on that for a minute.

And points for you if you got the double meaning in this post’s title. ;-)

See How CRAZY It Is? To Think I Believe In YOU?

22 Oct

Shawn Byfield inspiration motivation

Do YOU believe in you? Because I really do.

Ever since an early age I’ve been a cheerleader for others. Caring and wanting you to succeed has always been a passion of mine. I’m a wired optimist and a true believer in human potential.

Do you think I’m crazy? I hope so, because it’s the people who are CRAZY enough to dream, the people who support others, the few who take risks, and those who think BIG are the ones who impact lives and make a meaningful difference in our communities.

You Always Remember The Crazy Ones

So, whatever you’re dreaming, know that I believe in YOU, and you’ll get through whatever you’re going through! Tag, call, text or tweet someone to remind them you believe in them. Share love with a friend, because just the gesture that you’re thinking of them could brighten their day.

LAUNCHING SOON! Toronto’s Favourite Hip Hop and Tap Dance Classes

11 Sep Toronto hip hop and tap dance classes

Toronto hip hop and tap dance classes

It’s time to grow. It’s time to reach the next level. TAPDANCE MASTERY and HIPHOP DANCE WORKOUT will rock your world!

These classes are for dancers who want to break away from boring and actually see tangible PROGRESS week, after week, after week. Too many times, dancers come to class and get frustrated, because they’re keep returning at the same level…

…Unfortunately, nothing improves if there’s no consistent, weekly effort. You have to WORK AT IT.

These new sessions will give dancers that satisfaction of PROGRESS. When you know you’ve committed to a tap dance or hip hop dance class every single week, when you have to practice what you’ve learned, and when everyone expects to see you in dance class next week, same time, same place, you become accountable for your progress.

And Here’s The Best Part…

The best part? Because there’s a room full of friends supporting and rooting for you each and every week, all striving to improve their dance skills also, you quickly start to SEE the difference. You FEEL the difference. You BECOME better.

It just works.

90% of success in life is just SHOWING UP.

If you want to get better, commit to being better. Challenge yourself to doing something better. Surround yourself with those who strive to be better.

TAPDANCE MASTERY and HIPHOP DANCE WORKOUT are the classes that push you to get there.

I’m looking for a few positive people with courage and commitment who want to see growth in their dance skills AND also in fitness level. The coming new dance term at www.BDXstudio.com will take you there, you’ll see. Get excited!

Drop me a line- what do YOU want to get better at? Leave your thoughts below,
