Business practice is supposed to be a mutual
exchange in which both sides are better off for it
(I pour cement for your driveway, you pay me,
I wanted the money, you wanted the driveway
both sides are happy with the trade).
You mentioned both sides get $crewed but both
sides enjoy it......... that would still classify
as a win-win situation.
What I am seeing lately in business leaders is
an obsession with finding "win-lose" transactions.
They dont care what they are winning, just so the
other side is losing. They are happy selling buggy
whips instead of jet engines, just so long as
the customers pay too much and the vendors are going
broke. these types of business leaders would rather
shut the business down, than see a scenario where
everybody is making it.
True business leaders (gag, dare I mention Bill Gates?)
want a great many factions to come out winners, i.e.
the vendors and the employees are well-compensated.
But business leaders to be wary of are the ones that
dont care what the opportunity, the market, or the
customers are saying, just so long as they make
money and you go broke. Run for your life on those types.
old navigation calculators may well be an
example where you really can't use it for much.
I'm thinking it has to be an item approved for
FAA exams, otherwise why bother learning its
idiosyncracies and getting familiar with it.
Therefore if it is no longer approved for an FAA
exam, whats the use.
That would point towards using the more recent
Jeppesen navigation calculator products.
