Entrepreneurship 30: Teaching Franchises with Graphic Novels
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

The students were starting a lesson on franchising and how it can be considered a form of entrepreneurship. We discussed the benefits and drawbacks of being either a franchisor or a franchisee. To engage the students into some heavier content I found a graphic novel, “Tales o f Garcon, The Franchise Players”, on the website Teachers pay Teachers. This was a great resource meant for business/ economics students. I found the first 2 chapters fit perfectly into an entrepreneurship course. The first chapter was a free download and examined the concept of franchising. It outlined the history of franchises, the players involved, discussed business terminology and ended in a dramatic fashion forcing the students to ask themselves the following:
• Potential risks involved in franchising
• Legalities of franchising
• Protection available to both parties

Human resource or manpower planning is of great important in the general development and growth of organizations. Thus personnel and Human resources experts, managers and practitioners have now made it known to management that adequate attention be given to it with a view to ensuring better use of other resources especially capital. Organisations have also realized that with increasing competition and complexity in business, more time should be devoted to effective human resources planning to achieve desired goals. Furthermore organisations have known that not only is the overall cost of human resources high , that human element is complex, unpredictable and sometimes difficult to develop or change unlike capital that is relatively easier to acquire, manager or control.

Money Management may be defined as the process of managing money, including investments, budgeting, banking, and taxes. Managing your money is an essential life skill. When you know what you're doing, it really isn't so difficult. Once you've left home, the only person responsible for your financial health is you, so it's good to know the essentials. Managing your money can help reduce the stress levels that you experience throughout your life. It can help you to plan for unexpected events and expenses. A budget is a plan for spending and savings. It is a financial plan of income and expenditure which assists you in managing your finances. Subsequently we will learn about appropriate budgeting principles. Some learners make the choice and become entrepreneurs even while they are formally studying: they provide services such as barbering and manicures for a small financial return from their friends. This module will consider the qualities and the main tools of an entrepreneur.
