Excellent book for a new business or an established one that needs to improve.,
This review is from: Kick Start Your Own Martial Arts School: How to Set Up and Run a Successful Martial Arts Business (Paperback)
I would say that this book is absolutely essential for anyone thinking of starting their own martial arts business or to greatly improve an existing one! Talib's statement regarding "white belt in business" is an understatement as far as I'm concerned, it should read "hasn't even purchased the suit yet!!" I started Judo when I was only 4 years old and over the years reached the top level, competing and training all over the world so I think my credentials regarding knowledge of the subject are beyond doubt. What is in serious doubt is my business skill. I started my own business in 2004 after serious injury and illness forced me into early retirement from top level competition. Since then, I feel I have made little progress as far as the business is concerned and was getting to the point where I decided I had to almost start afresh. After exploring various things and getting advise from different sources, I came across Talib's book. Although I haven't yet taken in all the information from the book, I can see how invaluable it is going to be for me now and in the future. This is the type of book that you can either read from cover to cover if you are starting from scratch or you can just dive in and out of the book, gleaning information from the sections that you require at the time. I'm sure this book will always be at hand to guide me in the future.
If you are starting or running any martial arts business (or indeed ANY business!), consider this book to be ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to help you be a success!
