Can I get autographed copies when they are ready?

This is a great insightful article Bob.

I think some instructors shy away from treating the dojo like a business for fear of becoming a McDojo but unless you have unlimited cash elsewhere you need to get good with this stuff.

I also think that a lot of instructors want to help. They see what they do as a community service. This is a great thing, they have great hearts and are a tremendous value to their community. But to survive, you need a profit.

That's a good point. Unless you can get community grants or some other outside funding you still need to turn a profit.
