Posts by lwchina said at 2010-8-20 18:16 Edit Details determine success or failure, this really makes me full of knowledge of the old saying. A small act, let us take a big one! Things like this, today, to a foreign customer to visit our company Marshell Electric Vehicle factory tour. Frankly we can not win the hearts of customers not sure. But since customers come, let's enthusiasm for starting a greatest thing to impress clients. We briefed him on our sales of products, and I sat listen. I smoke from time to time to him and help him ignition. About an hour later, the customer said to go, there are a manufacturer want to go under study, take a look to say. I nodded. Yes ah, such a large ratio of input, multi-study investigation, comparison and it should be. Well shop around. Then I casually say that you fly to, you go with this lighter hand, there is no such smoking is not easy. At this time, the customer gave me a smile, and then they actually sat down, I put the list now finalizing it. Before coming, I inspected the two, and you are about the size, product appearance is also not tell by looking up and down. But they are not you so for the sake of customers. You send me on the red lighter move, I will not go to other manufacturers had. Use your product, I rest assured ... excited ... I thought, ah, a dollar in exchange for hundreds of orders for vehicles, electric sightseeing cars. Success really is reflected in the little things, determine the details of a small success, now in stores such as brutal as the battlefield environment, but also to grasp the attention to detail!

Asked By chris,Last Answer By pugpaws2 At 2011.03,1 Answers

PugPaws posted a question earlier about learning your style that got me thinking. Are we actually doing justice to the martial arts? Meaning, we step on the floor and teach every day and pass on our knowledge to others. But in reality, it's a business. We have to turn a profit to keep doing what we're doing. We slam McDojo's because they churn out 'black belts' like an assembly line. They have 'masters clubs', 'CIT' and whatever else. I'll admit, ATF specifically, has a great business plan to make money. Present day life and thought is completely different from 20 years ago when you walked into a dojo. You trained, you fought, you got banged up, you passed your test, or didn't, but you didn't care about the color of your belt. Today, parents mostly, will yank their child right out of your door if their kid wasn't passed. You just lost money. We have bills to pay. Kids are the life blood of a dojo. Says every successful program out there: NAPMA, MAIA, and so on. These programs were put together by 'old school' martial artists. Ones who believed in 'if i don't pass, i try harder' but put together blanket programs to grow your 'business' through 'black belt clubs', 'masters clubs', best testing time lines. Everything a McDojo is. So honestly, aren't we all, at least to some degree a McDojo?
