I don't know if you're business is extremely local, like one gym in one smaller town, but I guess it is. Then I'd go for some flyers and word of mouth and live seminars sounds good. Of course today it's a necessity to have a good and modern website with clear image of prices and what you get for the money. And of course easy contact forms for collecting e-mail adresses. I'd wouldn't sign up if the site looks shady, especially when you selling a service of trust.

The free seminars can be recorded and put online, either via youtube or a running blog with your name on it, so that your unique training philosophy comes across to the presumed customer. If there's time you could E-mail the seminar video updates to the e-mails over time if they continue like in a running blog.

I guess also, since you're targeting atheletes, you'd get a booth of something in expos of the sport they participate...

Just some thoughts.. Smiley

I agree that utilizing his mouth more is the best way to expand the business.

Sim City simply is not working.



Well, to the extent that that's true, the bombing may be legitimate.

The problem is that many games run into bumps early on and are subsequently improved such that they become quality products, whereas the initial negative reviews are permanent. Given that dev cycles are tight and games often must be "completed" by a deadline the publisher imposes, it isn't necessarily fair to punish developers for having to adhere to an overstrict schedule -- especially not if they develop a quality product over the course of a more reasonable timeline subsequent to release.

The same thing happened to me back in 2001 when I bought WWII Online.  That game was supposed to be epic and no one was able to play it due to server issues.  You were supposed to be able to play with 10,000 people plus at once.

It was a pretty unique game in that actual distances were mapped mile for mile and the damage models were incredibly accurate, even by today`s standards.

Its still going strong and has been updated actually and plays quite well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_Online

That's interesting -- I didn't know that game was still around. I imagine that the playerbase is a somewhat small but dedicated group? Is there any room for griefing?

Company of Heroes is the best WWII-era game I've ever played, though I'm sure that the mechanics it employs would be amazing in just about any setting.


Amazon review bombing is a cheap tactic employed by a crowd of petulant turds who get mad when a product isn't precisely what they expect it to be. This leads to spiteful and at times arbitrary bombings, such as when Mass Effect 3 was bombed due to its (admittedly shitty) ending. As best as I was able to tell, the game was very good despite the ending, especially the multiplayer.

While bombing can in principle be a means of expressing valid protestation (such as when one is ripped off), as of right now it is a trolling tool. That said, I doubt it impacts sales any.

Here's an excerpt from an Al Qaeda application form, a declassified document among the thousands the U.S. military and related organizations have acquired while in Afghanistan (reprinted in a variety of places, e.g., the appendix of The Bin Laden I Know by Peter Bergen):

Objectives of Al Qaeda

-Support God's religion, establishment of Islamic rule and restoration of the Islamic caliphate.

Requirements for joining Al Qaeda

-Abiding by Al Qaeda's rules, its beliefs and objectives.
-Obeying the leader in charge as much as possible, without disobeying Islamic rules.
-No connection between Al Qaeda membership and any other Islamic group.
-Maintain secrecy in work-related issues.
-Physically healthy (except in administrative work).
-The candidate should not be in question when it comes to religious integrity or his morality.
-Reciting the pledge of Al Qaeda.

Vacations

The married have a vacation by rotation for a week every three weeks, and in certain cases Al Qaeda may deny this vacation for four months. A bachelor can have a vacation by rotation for five days every month. Al Qaeda may deny his request for vacation in certain cases.

Requests for vacation travel should be submitted two and a half months before the travel date. The request would only be considered if it had been submitted in a timely manner as indicated, except in special cases.

Salaries and Tickets

-The salary of a married holy warrior is 6,500 Pakistani rupees and 500 rupees for every newborn.
-Salary of the bachelor holy warrior is 1,000 rupee (20 dollars a month)
-The bachelor holy warrior qualifies for a round trip ticket to his country one year after joining the organization. He can take a one month vacation.
-The married holy warrior and his family qualify for round trip tickets to their country of origin after two years, and one month vacation. Tickets cannot be reimbursed if unused.

....

One of the bachelors prepares for his $20 vacation to Karachi after a day's hard work:

yes, esp conspiracy theorists who think they got it all figured out oughta read that.

that book took the author 20 years of research amongst the smartest ppl in the world.

makes one truly understand economic basics.

I also recommend Guns, Germs, and Steel (which receives mention in the book you're reading) and Rise of the Western World: A New Economic History by Douglass North, which argues that the rise of the west over the rest is primarily the result of economic institutions that evolved out of property rights, a book that is only 158pgs.

It's not like athletes in these sports are risking their health and well-being for any great cause, it's to entertain a large group of morons.

The issue of whether the job serves any essential purpose to society is irrelevant to the issue of whether it is rational for a given individual to take the job (in this case, Sherman).

Ah, because one needs one health and body to get through all of one's life and not just your twenties and thirties.  Money doesn't help when you walk like a 60 year old man when you are in your 40's, or you have Dementia pugilistica from multiple concussions.  

There's no doubt that the job entails an increased risk of cognitive problems later in life. But just because such risks exist doesn't mean Sherman is stupid to take the job; that depends on the level of risk involved plus his own interests. For example, the best data I could find just now indicates that "players ages 30 through 49 showed a rate of 1.9 percent, or 19 times that of the national average, 0.1 percent [risk of dementia-related diagnoses]." (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/30/sports/football/30dementia.html?pagewanted=1)

This means that for an under 2% chance of dementia-related problems, Sherman gets to earn at least 9-10x the median income or so doing the thing he loves, the thing he was in some importance sense born to do. Alternatively stated, assuming that if such a diagnosis were handed down Sherman would be rendered a vegetable and unable to utilize his fortune (an extremely simplifying assumption that is absolutely false), the value of his earnings will be something like $4.9 million instead of $5 million (he will clear this amount unless he is knocked out early, as his rookie contract already has him slated to earn $2.2 million and he will fetch far more money his next contract, given his excellent performance).

Clearly, he is acting as almost any intelligent person would, and you are the fool.

These sports are like Christmas, for the children.  It isn't any wonder that the word FAN is short for FANATICAL!

Have you ever considered the possibility that you are the most fanatical person on this board, differing from other fanatics like ahmed only in the specific beliefs held? You might want to consider doing so.

I always thought that if you had to regularly chase a pigskin while smashing your body into big ass grown men, eventually causing yourself lifelong injuries and unnecessary suffering for the sake of entertaining a bunch of ignorant, beer swilling fools,  it was because You weren't good at life or smart enough to know better.

How does playing a game one loves for ~9-10x the country's median income right out of the gate (with fair prospects for earning much more than this in the near future) while still acquiring a degree from an ivy league university mark one as "[not] smart enough to know better"?

You're right for once, mate: the situation indicated in the title is literally not real (80% of NYC school grads who go to the state's community college system need remedial courses, not 80% of NYC school grads in general).

You and the author of the article desperately need to take such remedial courses: the NYC high school graduates who attempt to enroll in the community college system of the state aren't a representative sample of NYC high school graduates simpliciter, and thus one can't assert anything about the latter from results about the former.
