Franchise as a Post NFL Career Option

by Larry Chiang on January 23, 2015

Larry Chiang’s Duck9, is a sequel company. As an undergrad entrepreneur, Larry Chiang mentored college students at public and private schools to get a FICO over 750+ as an undergrad. “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School” and “So Lets Network for SXSW using WordPress Trackbacks” are at Harbus, Harvard B-school’s blog.

5 truths you should confirm and consult.
– Franchising is dangerous an puts YOUR capital at-risk
– Payton Manning didn’t invest in a dozen papa john franchises. He bartered for them. URBAN legends about franchising swirl everywhere.
– The John Elway deal started off as licensing and commercials. He didn’t just plop down $2m for a Chevy franchise
(Disclosure: I benefitted from teaching at Stanford University, school of engineering)
I’m guessing he had zero money at risk. Ever. So, to repeat, I’m guessing he never had capital cash money at risk. MORE ON THAT BELOW.
– Starbucks, the franchise, was started by three dudes who sold Peets beans. Coffee.
Disclosure: Clara Shih is a personal friend. She is on the board of Starbucks corporation. She can confirm how Starbucks was founded: It was founded on beans sourced from the Berkeley Peets
Disclosure: I’m founder of “#CalEweek”
“I got tired of the politically incorrect act of kicking the retarded kids on the short bus, so I did something to alleviate the truth of this t-shirt” –Larry Chiang
– Drew Brees studied at GSB. Ask him about the genius stuff he learned. GSB is Graduate School of Business. At Stanford. It’s not to be confused with the original GSB at University of Chicago :-))
Woodstock wouldn’t pay for a Met Life franchise. He’d get paid to be in an ad and then also get 12 franchises selling a product that is all margin. Insurance is all margin. Do you think State Farms pays all it’s liability claims? Or just runs more advertisements!?
Call to action: asking you to come to the Westin to watch Shark Tank (in the lobby bar) might be intimidating to you. I am 6’5″ and a 230 pound Chinese man 😉
Instead, just be a mouse and bookmark this article your QB emailed u (or was it the kicker who
– hustles a radio show
– hustles and does 5 celeb appearance gigs
– hustles up random partnerships
– hustled up a wife with money
(Hint: your punter didn’t marry money. His wife runs the businesses that he networks and does deal flow for!)
Depending on when you were a rookie, I might have met you already. I spoke about credit, credit scores, FICO and not lending our name to relatives. “We lend money before we lend our name by co-signing loans”
Zero risk:
“As an NFL alum with 2mos or 20 years of service, you should risk zero money in acquiring a franchise”

Oh, if you’re tech savvy, I’m doing a launch party for the sales docs that YC is releasing. YC is y Combinator
Duck9 is
Deep Underground Capital Knowledge
Deep Underground Credit Knowledge
it’s also a battle slogan: duck and avoid chapter 9 BK. chapter 9 is the worse kind where your bankruptcy is so bad, banks don’t even bother trying to collect or repossess. It’s sad. Chap9 wrecks your credit report and demoralizes your spirit.
