From the Editor's Desk
Narasimha Rao remains one of the most unsung heroes in Indian politics. This article by Charles Assisi explores how he was behind some of the most crucial decisions in India's modern day history. Today, Narendra Modi is surrounded by people he trusts. As opposed to that, Rao surrounded himself with people whose abilities he trusted. But he trusted nobody, except himself. He was a loner. Rao didn't have a faction or a coterie. That made him an ideal consensus leader. He didn't come across as threatening and converted loneliness into a virtue. Modi may do well to learn from him.

What you need to know about  franchising without a partner - Franchising
There are many different ways to approach the day-to-day operations of a franchise unit. Some people prefer to have operational partners and divvy up responsibilities. This might make sense when you have two or three people who each possess different skill sets. Perhaps one is better with organization and accounting, another more adept at marketing and customer relations, and so forth. It can be a good management tool but it's not for everyone. Remember it means profits are divided among the partners. Besides, some entrepreneurs like to have their hands on all aspects of operations and maintain a more centralized control.

4 Ways you can exit your franchise gracefully
4 Ways you can exit your  franchise gracefully - Franchising
As discussed last week, when considering an exit strategy there are four basic ways to leave (or transfer) a business: 1) to heirs or family; 2) to a key employee or team; 3) to an outsider; 4) to no one, by shutting it down. Before exploring each approach, a few thoughts. First, as a business owner, you face several strategic options. Do you want to sell 100 percent, take the money and run? Do you want to keep your hand in, help guide the firm during its transition? Do you want to retain an ownership percentage to supplement your retirement fund, make a loan to the buyers to provide an ongoing source of income?
