Has anyone here franchised boba shops or is familiar with the process? Saw a post on a local Facebook group from a guy who owns multiple ShareTeas in my city (top 5 in US by population). Dude must be printing money.

I checked ShareTea and iirc that want/require $300k in startup costs + $100k in liquid capital. I'm guessing that means at least $100k cash and up to $300k in business loans if you don't have more cash. Sounds super expensive but every ShareTea I've been to in my city does well

The management style between Asian and Americans are different and I struggle with American way. Asian leaders and managers seem to know how to execute most if not all of the things their workers do and very willing to get their hands dirty. Americans don’t know nor there is willingness to learn, all they now mostly care is networking, drinking beer and wine and politicking

I need some advice, but more than that I want to see if it’s normal. I hate my job. I’m in internal audit. My weeks feel like an endless repeating cycle of looking forward to the weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve felt joy in life. Every day I dread signing on and cant help but feel depressed. I need to support myself and my parents. I can’t afford a fancy bootcamp to redevelop my skills. Is anyone else just working for the paycheck? What can I do to break out of this cycle?

Every time I fight with my parent, they bring up the fact that they spent all their money on me and my education. I am grateful that I had parents to support me. But, to always bring it up and to try to guilt me does not sound healthy to me. I am beginning to question my parent’s behavior. Is this toxic? Do other people’s parents also always bring up how much they spent all their life earnings on their kids and how we would be nothing without out them ?

Since we’re doing unpopular opinions, wanna share one and get some other perspectives on it: never experienced a white person or other minority race being outright and purposefully racist towards me; only experiences of blatant purposeful racism has come from African African folks.
