I can’t say much about this because it goes on and on, but I did get a call (from a guy in the Midwest) asking me the same question. The simple answer is this: I have been a small business owner for nearly a decade, and I know that we are all the same.
This is an interesting question because it touches on a theme that I touched on earlier in this chapter. One of the reasons business owners get their start is because they don’t really have a choice but to compete with the system that they are bound to be part of. I know that I don’t really compete against the system. I simply make the best decisions for myself and my clients. I am not a slave to the system.
That seems to be the case for most entrepreneurs and small businesses, or at least the ones that are not owned by a government. There is one system that is most similar to ours in that its one that we all know of.
For some reason, that system is called “in-house training.” The reason this is a problem for entrepreneurs is because this means that there is no outside influence on what their employees are taught. Employees who are taught by some outside person or persons are not likely to become entrepreneurial in the way that you would like them to. Because if so, they will be employees of a company that has been in business for a long time and has a long history of training its employees.
That’s not a problem with apparel business systems because you don’t need a company to teach your employees how to wear clothes. They are already making clothes, so this doesn’t seem to pose a problem. But companies do need to create their own system. And that is because they have employees who are not trained to wear clothes. So where do we draw the line? The line? Well, it’s the line between what is acceptable and unacceptable.
Well, I’m just saying, it isnt really a problem. If you want to wear a shirt that says “I’m not a fan of this company” you can just do that. If you want to wear a shirt that says “I’m not a fan of this company” you can just do that.
The question is where to draw that line. Like some companies, you can choose to hire people who just wear plain T-shirts. Others will choose to hire people that do not wear clothing at all. But I think it all comes down to how you define “clothing.” If your employees wear clothing, it’s acceptable. If your employees don’t wear clothing, it is not.
Clothing is a pretty easy thing for a company to define. Most companies use a combination of what they are already selling, what they would like to sell, and what they have on hand. I think it’s a bad idea to have a system in place that does not allow employees to select their own clothing. You should always ask your employees what they would like to wear and let them decide.
If you’re a clothing company, you can just create a list of what makes you comfortable and let your employees choose from that. If your employees want to wear something different, you should let them. If you have a system, you should let them. If you dont, you should change your system to allow them to wear whatever they want.
It is very easy for me to get excited about a new tech because I have a whole bunch of friends who are running their own clothing companies. And it is also easy to get mad about a new tech because I have a whole bunch of friends who are running their own clothing companies and they are all so darned unhappy.
