Okay, so one of our masseuses told us that her boss is likely to sell the business. This was about a month ago. She contacted me tonight and told me that two other parties have started discussions with him.

 

The background is that the owner is a young chap, mid twenties, who spend lots of time on gaming and gambling on the Internet. As a result, he owes the landlord money plus and has not been timely with paying his employees. Therefore, he needs cash to "redeem" himself.

 

Out of the 3 employees, I know two them, a woman and a man, as they used to massage me until they left to join this guy about 2 years ago. I'm closer to the woman as I know her earlier and she massaged my kids and myself more than the man.

 

So the question is that what pheros should I wear as I really want to purchase over the business not I don't want to pay too much over the other two bidders. I'm keen in taking over the business as an investment option although my entire family loves massages. There aren't too many shop lots for rent in the compound and the workers have been working in within the compound for at least five years so they already have clients of their own. Finally, many of my colleagues live in the same area and I will be able to gain more new businesses.

Oh, what an interesting prospect, JOC! SWS is the first thing that comes to mind but what about Dominance? Do I remember reading somewhere that you're not into that? If so (thought I could have made it up) then perhaps Leather, which will give that dominant vibe but also might encourage people to want to be accommodating toward you.

I don't have dominance and would love to try but I have leather. I love SWS but as I want him to be keen in selling me the business, i don't need him to respect me as what SWS does for me.

Yeah,I would stay with something general purpose,like OW,since you do not know if he is an EST responder,and 'Anone in Leather might be too much ...hmmm,maybe even light early Flying Potion <straight Anol > ...good luck,sounds like a wonderful investment ! :) :)

Wow. This is hard. SWS was pretty harsh for me.

 

So you want them to like you more and be willing to give you a good price. Hmm....I suppose a good social would work for that, perhaps. Especially since these people have worked for you in some capacity already. And the owner is young...so something that doesn't intimidate would be good.

 

I am thinking maybe Open Windows or Levitation.

 

Or do you think Cougar would be overkill? Or maybe LFM?

I'm at work now. I brought Sparkle Fuchsia and have some Mojo and Persuasion Potion in my hair. I wanted to add some Flying Potion before the meeting and decided against it as I will be heading home right afterwards.

I was thinking dominance and open windows for your circumstance or anything that makes you appear to be extra bold and in charge yet approachable and trustworthy. Cough. M not an phero expert, I'm a newbie, but that's my chime. Im actually looking for Dom and ow for the same similar purposes. Business meetings.

I'm officially taking over the shop on 23rd Feb. I've put a deposit to secure the deal and will have to look into pressing matters such as how to ensure that my employees are fed at 11.30am and 4.00pm every day. Yay! Something to keep me busy after I finish my contract at my current dreadful work place.

Thanks all! Come on over for a massage party! Beware that traditional Chinese massage might hurt if you have yin/yang and blockage issues, etc. you can tell that I am not exactly well versed in this.

 

It's actually a very small place, just four chairs for foot reflexology and 3 beds for body massage. There is one more bed in a separate room but this room has been taken by the lady employee and I assume that the two guys leave their personal belongings in that room as well.

 

You see, the deal is that I have to provide lodging and three square meals per day. This is the common pratice for most service industries. As the parlor has beds, most of them will be willing to rough it out a little and sleep in the shop. There is a pantry cum storage at the side and a bathroom for the staff and guests. The 3 staff will continue working at the shop so that's the relief.

 

@LV, not likely to have a website as its really small and low-key. Due to the location (suburban and within a residential compound of about at least 5000 households), it will continue to operate as a value-for-money joint. High turnover and to charge at market rate as the staff are well trained and skillful.

 

If I do not hold a full time job and I have time to spare, I might consider doing this for the fun of it as well as to get it out to the "market".

I love trad. Chinese massage. The harder the better. Last time I had a real good one it was like I was drugged. I went home and passed out for hours, slept through an Earthquake and got my period.

@StacyK, I like firm and slow massages and my favorite is Thai style. However, shiatsu, if done by a pro is fantastic too.

 

I usually tell them to go easy when it comes to acupressure points and harder when it's muscles. I go to a TCM on Sunday mornings. He massages me but it hurts so much that sometimes, I could hardly breathe.

When I had the massage when she went down the sides of my calfs it was so painful. Then I realized she was actually hardly pressing down at all. She asked if I was due for my period and it was due in about 10 days. I was told not to be surprised if it came that night due to the massage and yep it did. I had other points of much needed release and was told I'd either have an incredible burst of energy later in the day or I'd probably end up taking a nap.. well I napped and really I had no choice I had to lay down.

I wish I could find someone even half as good here. Still looking.

Congrats,JOC! I know you were thinking of different LPs that would be good for the meeting. Which LPs did you end up choosing?

I went with Mojo and Persuasion Potions. I think I had some PCMP on my scarf.

Yes, I use this set of Spell Potions more often than the new set. I bought two full sets each (and some odds and ends) but the old one is disappearing fast.
