We manufacture and sell a gadget that tells a farmer when the grain bin is full. To make any money we had to learn how to multiply and not add. After selling one, we needed to sell ten, then 100 then 1000 units. What happens if you run into a technical problem, and you have to replace parts on 500 units that are all over Western Canada? What kind of help is out there for someone to start out who does not have much income yet? Join John as he shares his trials and tribulations on his path to success.
