Has anyone set up a franchise business model, not just buy into one.

Three years ago I implemented a franchise model in my business that had been running since 2005. I did this and am doing this very naively! My business is gut health, therapeutic colonics which has an increasing audience with peoples knowledge of lifestyle disease. However our marketing still needs to be very education focused as most still are misinformed of what this therapy is. I have tried different mentor options however as what I am doing is quite left field this has not been easy as in many ways I believe I am making the path as I go. I get when people say that it doesn't matter what your business they all need to be run the same, with systems etc. However having someone that has set up their own franchise in a service based model with no initial capital I haven't been able to find. I am on my own so having someone who gets where I am at and can support me in my way forward and how to get to the next level as I am pretty much at tipping point with being able to cope with everything. Someone once told me that once you have sold 10 franchises it all changes up from here. I have put this question under sales but its not directly related to sales .

Looking for partner to grow the business

We are a mid size electrical contractor, started with $0 capital. We are turning over approx $5mil per year in Melb and Perth. We are able to take on more work with the team and equipment we have in place but need working capital to do so. All of our projects are profitable but our overhead seems to soak it all up, despite us continually looking for ways to reduce costs. Advisers have told us we need to scale the business beyond $10mil, but the help pretty much stops at that point. Open to suggestions

Need help to secure small loan to purchase stock for online business

Hi. I have a computer hardware business and it would run much more smoothly If I had some capital to work with and purchase stock. I know which items will sell as have sold alot of hardware and have quite a large customer base. As I have a bad credit rating I can not get a loan, credit card, overdraft. Is there a solution out there? $10-20K. At the moment all orders are drop shipped or most of them which is ok for some items. Thanks in advance.
