Thread: cant win with the Wife

  1. #1

    Default cant win with the Wife

    as most of you all know I own and run a Martial Arts Shop and Website.

    over the last 4 years of me being opened I have seen many changes to both the Traditional and MMA Market.

    with more and more websites popping up all the time selling mostly the same MMA Brands and Kit, I have decided to go back to my roots and sell more Traditional Gear ( as their is a demand at shop level ).

    so because of the slight change in direction I have changed the shop but she is kicking off saying cant you leave the shop alone.

    my question is ~ does a person that does not do Martial Arts, turns up to my shop for 3 hours a week to talk to me.

    am i right and she is a moaning cow or she right ~ please advice

    my wife moans about my training , fighting

    I moan about not having any clean clothes.

    People should stick to what they know...

    all women moan, knowing what i know now, life as an international playboy would have been easier

    If you need a friend, get a dog !

    IMO the most important thing for a shop owner is to seel what the customers want to buy

    If your customers are looking for traditional martial arts gear, then your doing the right thing by going back to that

    People speak very highly of your shopman, there must be a reason for that

    ignore the wife, shes just being a wife, lol

    If you're making more from MMA gear - She's right
    If you're making more from TMA gear - She's wrong

    She probably doesn't care all that much, just wants an argument.. bloody women!

    take away her reasons, make every situation an advantage.

    when i have been in similar situations, i always make the changes seem like they are for her.

    like when i decided to do an open mat sessions on a sunday morning. i moped around for a few days, until she caught on and asked me what was up, and i told her that my money situation was getting me down, i told her i wished i was earning more money so i could afford to buy her the things she deserved, and maybe even take a trip away, but the school wasn't earning too well.

    a few days later i come home and tell her about opening up the extra sunday session to generate extra income.

    She was on the phone to her mum that night telling her how thoughtful i was.
