Jason, First I like your 25 - 50 - 25 bell curve picture of franchise owners so I want to play with that idea, with more concrete data that I understand. I do however disagree with success = individual because I've seen huge disparities in service territories where some owners get maybe a third of the real opportunity that other owners get.
Your comment about all the guess comments is also interesting. As I'm a confirmed blogger, I'm ascribe to transparency and while I understand there is some risk, it's also healthy to have this open debate.
