Different ages kids expressing interest in attending karate class

Listen, the martial arts arts world is full of guru’s promising to “Double Your Business” or whatever term the marketing people say they should this week.

But I have a little news for ya.

You ain’t in the business of building a business, you’re in the business of growing your community.

Stop trying to build a business and grow a community.

Have you ever heard a pastor at church say “Let’s grow this business”? Nope, what they say is “Let’s share our message and grow our community, we’ll help more people that way”

Some are real, real good at sharing their message and they have churches with ten’s of 1000’s of members, and they make millions of tax free dollars…

And their ‘students’ only go to class once a week on Sunday’s!

Others are strip mall churches with 5 people sittin’ in the pews on Sunday morning…

So maybe if we treat our students more as a community than a business, If we approach building our communities (hey, a community with 300 people will give you a wonderful life…) instead of trying to learn to run money extraction scams,  we might just find that we are helping more people, and help ourselves also.

Next week;  The 3 rules of building a community.
