Good Question, Luckiest. Thanks for posting this. I'm looking forward to reading the responses you get.
In order to control employees, business finances etc, you need a sound control systems with proper checks and balances at various levels. This in Accounting language, we often refer as internal control system. You can take any franchise as an example. The actual owner(s) of a franchise such as Denny's is not present 24 hrs a day at the premises but the business operates and generates profit succesfully.
Thats my 2 cents worth. I am looking forward to what others have to say.
The issue of control is central to most business owners.
People need to feel in control.
It is far more comforting to call the shots.
The more decisions a person makes during the day, the more that person feels in control.
How do you control your employees and your business??
