Sarah decided to purchase a Sharkey’s hair cut for kids franchise rather than set up her own sole trader business. To what extent do you agree with her decision? (15)

A franchise is a business that allows other to mimic its idea, brand logo and more for an agreed price or royalty fee. Sarah is a busy women who must devote a certain amount of time to looking after her children and as a sole trader business it would be harder work to get set up as a pose to a franchise. There would also be a lot more risk involved in terms of making the start up successful. A franchise is business that has proven to be a success to some degree. By choosing to be a franchisor she is minimising this risk and setting up a business that is “half way home” so to speak. By becoming a franchisor, Sarah benefits from having flexibility of hours which she needs as she has children and a good amount of decision making. She wont be able to have full control like she would if she was a sole trader but perhaps this is better as less decisions to make will mean less time needed to be spent.
On the other hand maybe she could benefit more from starting up as a sole trader as she would have more control over the day to day runnings of the business as she would have full control and ownership. She would benefit from higher self satisfaction and be slightly more motivated to make the business successful. After a while she could employ more people and devote less time to the business however certainly in the starting up stages she will have little free time.
Sarah has worked inside of a business as an IT consultant which means she will have some experience in how a successful business operates but not how one is run. She wasn't a manager or in charge of a segment of the company so maybe taking such a bug step wouldn't be advised and perhaps it would be more wise to set up a franchise where more is

...Dorothy Gale played by Judy Garland who dreams of another life. Dorothy lives on her auntie Emily (Clara Blandick) and uncle Henry’s (Charley Grapewin) farm, and has friends named “Hunk (Ray Bolger), Zeke (Bert Lahr) and Hickory (Jack Haley). All of the mentioned friends play a vital roles as The Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), The Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) and The Tin Man (Jack Haley)” in the film. (IMDb, n.d). At one point, Dorothy decides to run away and find a new life with her dog Toto. During a storm and trying to get back home, Dorothy finds herself in a strange place, The Land of Oz. The scene I have chosen to analyze is “The Cowardly Lion” staring Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Lion. The importance of each character in the scene is the Lion tries to seem brave, while the Tin Man and the Scare Crow are scared of him. Toto runs away from him and Dorothy saves Toto. She teaches the Lion a lesson on picking on people. That is when they learn the lion is really just a coward. The producers used a little bit darker lighting, which mad the background appear to be darker when the Lion was picking on the Tin Man and Scarecrow. The light casts shadows off of the characters, especially Toto. I feel that it helps the viewer relate to the menace the Lion is trying to portray. According to Geneseo Edu (n.d),...

Huckleberry Finn Notes

...Summary: Chapter 29 The real Harvey Wilks, in an authentic English accent, explains the reasons he and his brother, William, were delayed: their luggage was misdirected, and his mute brother broke his arm, leaving him unable to communicate by signs. Doctor Robinson again declares the duke and the dauphin to be frauds and has the crowd bring the real and the fraudulent Wilks brothers to a tavern for examination. The frauds draw suspicion when they fail to produce the $6,000 from the Wilks inheritance. A lawyer friend of the deceased then asks the duke, the dauphin, and the real Harvey to sign a piece of paper. When the lawyer compares the writing samples to letters he has from the real Harvey, the frauds are exposed. The dauphin, however, refuses to give up and claims that the duke is playing a joke on everyone by disguising his handwriting. Because the real William serves as scribe for the real Harvey and cannot write due to his broken arm, the crowd cannot prove that the real Wilkses are indeed who they say they are. To put an end to the situation, the real Harvey declares he knows of a tattoo on his brother’s chest, asking the undertaker who dressed the body to back him up. But after the dauphin and Harvey each offer a different version of the tattoo’s appearance, the undertaker surprises everyone by telling the crowd he saw no tattoo. The mob cries out for the blood of all four men, but the lawyer instead sends them out to exhume the body and check for the tattoo themselves...

Comparing Heroism In The Odyssey And The Wizard Of Oz

...many different character traits that depict heroism, however, they have many different approaches to achieving their goal of going home. Dorothy and Odysseus share some similarities of heroism. For example, they both are depicted as brave, loyal, and determined. Dorothy is brave because she stands up to the witch in the part when she is trapped in her castle (Fleming). Dorothy is loyal to her dog, the lion, the scarecrow, and the tin man because she always comes back to them and fights for them. This can be seen in the part where she is locked in the witch's castle and fights to get Todo, her dog, back (Fleming). She is determined because she keeps on pushing forward until she gets home and helps her friend, for example when the wizard tells them to bring him the witch's broom she does not give up, she goes to her castle and does just that (Fleming). Odysseus is brave because he stands up to many obstacles like the cyclops, poseidon’s storms, scylla, and charybdis. He is loyal especially to his wife Penelope because he embarks on a tough adventure home from Tory to try and save her from the suitors. He is also loyal to his crew, because he sticks with them and helps them when they are in need, for example he helps them get past the lotus-eaters and helps them off the island after they have been drugged(IX.106-112). Odysseus is also determined because he does not give up on his journey until he reaches Ithaka after almost 15 years. During this journey he also has to fight through...

How Does Lee Use Compassion In To Kill A Mockingbird

...Compassion is sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others. However, there are innumerable people who are mercilessness and don’t know how to commiserate for others. There are myriad of authors who try to teach us to show compassion towards others. They make a valuable point to remember to keep an open mind and not be judgmental when showing compassion in, To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee, and Mark Twain in, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn.

She led him by the hand to a deserted table in a dark corner of the room. “Wait here, I’ll get ye a tankard.” Molly turned and walked toward the bar. Before she returned, a young man sat down at the table. “Well if it isn’t me good friend, Hawk!” A young man sat down uninvited at Jack’s table.

Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards

...MGMT5323 – Research Project Intrinsic and Extrinsic Rewards & Motivation August 6, 2011 Mark Twain wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876. One of the most famous stories in the novel is whitewashing the fence. It was a chore that Tom’s aunt Polly had assigned him but Tom found a way to get others to do the work and his first convert was Ben. When Ben told Tom he was going swimming and stated “Don’t you wish you could? But of course you’d druther work, wouldn’t you? Course you would!”. That was the start of a powerful lesson. Tom replied “Well, maybe it is, and maybe it ain’t. All I know, is, it suites Tom Sawyer” and he informed Ben that is it was not every day that a boy gets a chance to whitewash a fence and then proceeded to convince Ben that it was a privilege and only a few boys were even capable of doing such a job. Now the situation changed and Ben was willing to give Tom his apple in exchange for a chance for him to have the privilege of whitewashing the fence. “Tom gave up the brush with reluctance in his face, but alacrity in his heart. And while the late steamer Big Missouri worked and sweated in the sun, the retired artist sat on a barrel in the shade close by, dangled his legs, munched his apple, and planned the slaughter of more innocents. There was no lack of material; boys happened along every little while; they came to jeer, but remained to whitewash. By the time Ben was fagged out, Tom had traded the next chance to Billy Fisher for a...
