At age 65, Colonel Harland Sanders from Corbin Kentucky hit his stride. He began franchising his chicken business using his $105 monthly Social Security check. He was sleeping on a campground and traveling up and down the interstate trying to convince truck stop diners that he could cook chicken better than they could, and they needed to pay him for his recipe and proprietary cooking process.
Today, Kentucky Fried Chicken operates more than 5,200 restaurants in the United States and more than 15,000 around the world.
I believe someday we will look back on the Allen Knight entrepreneurial journey and say 2022 was the year he hit his stride after 20 years of struggle.
Allen has been 100% plugged into our business building systems and mindset training from day one. Some theologians teach a concept called divine appointments which I believe happens.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says when the student is ready, the teacher will arrive, and that has certainly been the case in my life when I heard Zig Ziglar for the first time, Jim Burke, and others.
I think Allen Knight would tell you that our paths crossed at the perfect time for him. What he doesn’t realize it was the perfect time for me as well. Allen proved to me that there are still teachable, hard-working people in the world that JUST WANT TO WIN. For someone of you, this is the podcast session you have been waiting for, for years.
It is my pleasure to introduce to you in this session my friend, I am going to call him Colonel Allen Knight from Orange County California.
