Alive and Kicking

Posted by Vijay on February 10, 2007

This blog has been dormant for a while now. Not because of lack of interest but because of some major things that were going on with my business that had me worried about our people and the direction we were headed in.

I am happy to say that we have come out of the mist and things are looking so bright that I am ordering new sunglasses.

Over the last 4 months we were literally on a rollercoaster ride. I will over the next several months blog it.

In the meantime, please take time to read this wonderful post on Information Architects Japan’sweb site.  It gives a true picture of what small businesses are faced with today. I had written a post along similar lines some time ago but this article is much better.

I love the term “Tire Kicker” that they use. To quote them, a “Tire Kicker” is:

Tire-kickers are those people that go check out cars whenever they can. They act as if they want to buy the car and ask for special deductions and conditions and they take 20 test-drives just to “change their mind” in the end. The true reason why they don’t buy is: They don’t have the dough
