    Default Mean Business

    Hola, ayer estaba leyendo una nota en inglés sobre cierto deportista, una de las frases con bastantes elogios hacia él terminaba con "Mean Business!", me pregunto que significará esa expresión, seguramente algo positivo sobre algo o alguien?

    Hola Salvadorm!

    Can you provide the context of the sentence that contained "mean business". It's an expression that can mean two separate things. When someone "means business" that means that the person is very, very serious about something. EX: "That guy means business!" or "Hey, I'm not kidding! I mean business!"

    It can also be a description of something, some activity or occupation meaning it's tough. EX: "Boxing is a mean business" or "Studying all night for an exam is mean business" or "Cancer is mean business"

    Bueno, seria "He means business". Es decir que el toma en serio lo que hace, algo asi. Se esfuerza hacer lo mejor que puede.
