No other business gets to beg the public for help when it needs an influx of cash. They build a product, prove it works and can grow and then they go out to secure funding if they don’t have family money. It’s how I did it. It’s how everyone does it.
And sometimes businesses fail.
My understanding is that John’s wife is a physician – so they’re not exactly living the slum life. He’s known around the world. If he’s really serious, he’ll find a way to work his connections to make this thing work. But it’s not gonna happen by begging the public for sympathy dollars.
What are your thoughts on the fat of ear X-tacy? So far, the discussion has been pretty great. The latest comments are rather interesting.
I’m sure this city can come up with some sort of solution. So dig in. Offer your ideas.
Just please stop sending me ridiculous emails telling me what a “right-wing hater” I am for “wanting ear X to fail” because that’s not the case. I just don’t feel sorry for a business – though I love it – when it doesn’t find ways to adapt to the marketplace.
