Intelligence is Not Necessary for Success
"Don't get me wrong: The leaders of great companies are generally smart, but they aren't necessarily smarter than those of the companies they compete against.

The transition curve is the initial high you feel when you’re embarking on your franchise journey; the feeling of relief that falls over you when your venture finally takes off; and everything in between. It will lift you up and plop you back down – you may never even see it coming. But if you familiarize yourself with these five phases, and you know what to expect, you can be sure your entrepreneurial journey is full of success, rather than stress.
