Have you ever walked into a busy retail store, and heard a customer say, “This place is sure to make a fortune”? Obviously this analysis was based solely on the number of people in the shop at the time. Then maybe a year later, the same establishment is closed. The same patron may be wondering what happened.
Many people like to watch hockey games, why is that?
They understand how the game works; enjoy evaluating and observing their favorite players in action. These fans will keep up with them, go to the actual games, have long discussions with friends, watch sports shows, and read the newspapers. This means that they can study the players, know their statistics, and can provide an educated opinion on the game of hockey. Most of these types of dye are avid fans of the game, and some may agree with me when I use the term obsessed. If some of these fans would consider dedicating themselves in the same way in business, they could be very successful !!!
How is hockey related to understanding business?
- Players will become your employees.
- Your fans are loyal customers.
- Referees are government bodies that enforce the law.
- Statistics are your business numbers.
- Passion comes from within.
- Final thoughts
It is very important to have proper business training before venturing out on your own. This way you have a clear perception of how the game works, and what it takes to get good at it. The customers in the shop are just fans who are impressed, but don’t know how to play the game. There’s nothing wrong with that, and everyone deserves an opinion. But maybe the next time you hear someone say, this shop makes a fortune, hopefully you will get a better awareness of the business game !!!
