Arnold put the phone back on the hook. The deal was almost complete and all of the manufacturing details had been worked out. All he needed now was a check for $5000 to complete the process. He thought for a moment how popular his revolutionary Ipod Holder for the Car would be. People would soon be flocking to his web site to buy it. The actual manufacturing process would take a month and his product would be delivered within 60 days. The profit margin was substantial. With all charges included the cost of each Ipod holder would be 50 cents and sell for an incredible $19.95.
10,000 units were just a phone call away…
Arnold had one obstacle left. He had to convince his wife to sign the check.
He grabbed his spreadsheet and walked into his home office where his wife Alice was working. “Honey”, he exclaimed, “look at these figures. We’ll be rich in no time.” She looked up from her desk and grabbed the paper. She perused the figures, put the paper down and replied, “You’re nuts,” and went on working. She had heard all of his “get rich” schemes before. She didn’t have the time or money to mess with his “crazy” ideas.
Arnold was shocked. Why couldn’t she see it? Why was there even a question?
Alice didn’t have faith in Arnold’s ideas.
What could Arnold do?
