Re: Purpose of a Business?

Hey Vaisforlovers, ... I believe our disagreement is rooted in semantics rather than philosophy. All that said though, I define a business as an entity that exists to create profit...period. That doesn't mean that I don't value those other things or think they should play a role in how a business i...

Re: Purpose of a Business?

Despite many's overwhelming agreement, I still do not believe that money is the purpose of a business. Money is the purpose behind a job. (not work, though) I humbly believe that I make more money by not owning a business. Right now, money is more important to me than owning a business, therefore I ...

Offer a product or service at enough of a profit to maintain or grow the company. All else is part of the business model.

Why does a company need to be maintained or grown? Maintenance and growth are not a purpose.

Re: Purpose of a Business?

If you want to boil it down without all the business mumbo jumbo, you could say the purpose of a business is to make happy customers, without that there is no business to speak of... profits, job satisfaction and expansion can only continue if you have satisfied that one criteria.

Re: Advocate release?

I Was driving from Abilene to Ft Worth today and passed through Weatherford. I looked up Mr. Bradley's address on his website, hoping to stop by his business. I was surprised when "the Google" led me to what I can only imagine was his home. Needless to say, I didn't stop by and ring the doorbell. I ...

Re: That feeling when...

I had the same issue with my Mantra 1. The pockets had a mesh lining and the mesh grabbed the tip and pulled it open.

These are two posts from a while back. Bottom Line, I really like the Slysz Bowie. It is one of my all time favorites. Hope these pics help you decide.

Re: How do you store your knives?

Sharing this from a previous thread... Really like having this display/storage box. It has probably saved me more money than any other purchase I've ever made. With my knives now so easily accessible I'm more likely to carry and use the ones that I have rather than purchase another and then store it...

Re: chaparral versus techno

Neither are particularly scary to non-knife people, but I think the Techno is less so. If opening hard plastic clam shell packaging, I'd want the Techno. If slicing apples, I'd want the Chaparral. I have a fob on my Techno and find the fob enables full grip control. I carry my Techno when I don't kn...

Re: Gent's folder with blade length slightly less than 2.5 inches

ejcr98, The Dragonfly meets your length requirement (2 5/16"). There are also many house variations : G10, stainless, Nishijin. Or if your really want to go swanky, you could go with the Santa Fe Stoneworks ones. They've done some super nice stone and wood inlays. http://i1147.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: Please no more paperclip pocket clips

For the past few years, five of my top six knives in my "Top 10" list have been ones with wire clips. Only the Southard Folder breaks the trend. I think #7-10 would break higher onto my list if they had wire clips too. Both the Lava (my #7) and Delica (#8) I carry I unclipped rather than use the fac...
