It takes plenty of time and resources to start, run and grow a successful PostNet center. But it also takes a certain kind of person. Below, PostNet Co-founder and COO Brian Spindel outlines the three most important personality traits exhibited in successful PostNet franchise owners.

“As far as the actual people, we need givers. For instance, Ron Bradley, who recently celebrated his 15th anniversary with us — he’s got a servant attitude, he is very active in his church; he goes on missions and things. The more givers you have in an organization, the more everyone can take,” Spindel said.

It’s page straight from the playbook of award winning author and Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania professor Adam Grant. Grant is the author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, which argues that the most successful people don’t take but instead give. In Grant’s words: “Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others, and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return. These styles have a dramatic impact on success. Although some givers get exploited and burn out, the rest achieve extraordinary results across a wide range of industries.”

Spindel also believes that successful PostNet franchise owners are people “who are easy to talk to and friendly. You’d think that would go without saying but it’s really is critical and important if you are going to build business to business relationships. People want to do business with people that they like and they trust. Somebody who through performance can build trust — from that comes confidence.”

Jim Ismert of Boulder City, Nevada, has built a strong PostNet by being a staunch supporter of the community, such as supporting the local chamber’s breast cancer awareness efforts. He has been named the Business Person of the Year by the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce.

According to the 2014 Edelman Trust Barometer family-owned and small and medium-sized businesses are perceived as more trustworthy in all regions of the world except Asia where publicly-traded and big business companies received the highest trust scores. As ambassadors of the small business community, PostNet franchise owners play an integral part in the success of their customers.

“I think urgency is another characteristic that I see in our top franchisees,” Spindel added. “They don’t put stuff off — if there is something that needs to be addressed, they address it.”
