Then of course there are those who just want to start their own business so they can do their own thing and make a decent living at it, as opposed to become a captain of industry. Not everyone wants to be King of the World.


Completely agree. As stated, I personally would never give my dad the shove regardless of whether he squandered business opportunities.

For a while I did due diligence and high risk assessment for a bank, and I was in a different company every week for almost two years. Typically the "high risk" segment of those I saw had a founder and CEO who was a product specialists, but he couldn't handle one or all of the pricing, financing, accounting and human resources aspects of the position. I've seen Tom's situation more than one would expect. I'm also not saying this was the case with Larry and Quantum...

Is anyone else struck by the fact that sales revenue is estimated to be only $13M? Sounds to me like a horrendous headache for not much money. I'd rather go sailing.

Could it be possible that the $13m number was just the gross sales of the main company and does not reflect the sales of the franchises?

I dunno. Someone commented on how low a number it was, and I was just throwing out the possibility.

Widely announced that Mr. Leonard is now with North in Annapolis.

According to rumors, most of the Annapolis North guys (including the afroementioned Mr. Leonard) will be out on various J/30's for the NA's the last weekend of September. A little in-house duke-it-out?
