STOP BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS NOW!

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.

  64. Thanks for your ideas. One thing we have noticed is that banks in addition to financial institutions understand the spending habits of consumers while also understand that most people max outside their own credit cards around the holidays. They sensibly take advantage of this real fact and start flooding the inbox as well as snail-mail box along with hundreds of no interest APR credit card offers immediately after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that in case you are like 98 of American open public, you’ll leap at the possible opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and transfer balances to 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.

The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  67. I have seen that good real estate agents almost everywhere are warming up to FSBO Advertising. They are realizing that it’s more than simply placing a sign in the front area. It’s really in relation to building interactions with these sellers who sooner or later will become buyers. So, whenever you give your time and effort to assisting these dealers go it alone – the “Law connected with Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.

  68. Thanks for your intriguing article. One other problem is that mesothelioma cancer is generally caused by the breathing of dust from asbestos, which is a extremely dangerous material. It is commonly witnessed among employees in the building industry who definitely have long experience of asbestos. It is caused by living in asbestos insulated buildings for a long period of time, Family genes plays an important role, and some individuals are more vulnerable on the risk in comparison with others.

  69. Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

  70. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  71. Thanks for your article. I would also like to say that the health insurance dealer also utilizes the benefit of the actual coordinators of your group insurance plan. The health insurance professional is given a long list of benefits looked for by someone or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker can is try to find individuals or coordinators which best go with those wants. Then he shows his recommendations and if the two of you agree, the broker formulates binding agreement between the 2 parties.

  72. I have noticed that of all forms of insurance, health care insurance is the most marked by controversy because of the discord between the insurance policy company’s necessity to remain adrift and the buyer’s need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies’ revenue on well being plans are low, hence some firms struggle to generate income. Thanks for the thoughts you reveal through this website.

  73. Decisively everything principles if preference do stamp.
