Pawn Stars Secret to Business Success

I must admit it is (a little) heartening when I read a news article whose point of view substantiates the advice we provide business owners.

An article on CNN about Rick Harrison of the tv show "Pawn Stars" describes his secrets of success. The article lists five secrets -
  1. Set yourself apart
  2. Know how to negotiate
  3. Offer something no one else does
  4. Treat every customer well
  5. Embrace social media
and gives examples of each (his example of social media is to have the fans design their t-shirts, which not only created traffic, but also saved him money!)

Still visiting the Center for Business Development is much easier than going to see Rick - no bouncer at the door, no throngs of other customers and no funny nicknames for the staff!
