Business Sense really matters

Putting yourself in someone’s shoes seems quite humorous quote ever heard in everyday life but it contains the broader perspective in terms of its meaning. Just imagine yourself putting someone else shoes in real for a moment, it will either not fit in properly or there are chances it huts your feet if you walk in it. 

Symbolically that means you will realize the pain of others only when you walk in their shoes. In order to start up a business of shoe store or shop, you don’t really need to put the shoes in your own feet however it means that you are making choice for others (ultimate customers) to put on the shoes on their feet.  

On a lighter note, the entire above scenario is not evoked to make you feel panic or scared of deciding about doing this business or not but it actually means to tell you the real sense of doing any business with seriousness and promising results keeping in mind the needs of users or customers. 

It is to urge you to keep this point in mind while choosing shoes for your shop or store. In other words what a customer want or need to wear is important while taking any decisions.

The distributor will then sell the wholesale shoes to the wholesaler in $10.
