Thanks Rick. You are entirely correct. Bob Carter and I sorted that one out. Man, I so glad he's back.Originally posted by Rick Granick:
That Sears operation you referred to sounds like The Great Indoors. We had one here, with the framing dept. up in the front corner. I think it was run by B A Framer. The store closed after a couple of years.
I would take some of that action.Originally posted by AWG:
Pay each of those network shops a piece rate - say $20-$30 per frame -
Ideas - I've got a million of 'em. Bucks - not quite so many.Originally posted by ERIC:
I was once told by a very smart business man, "If you have more ideas than money to do them with, stay away from people with money. They usually have more money than ideas."
You have given me a great idea for handling a project I want to start. Thanks.
Now, wait up! I said that I had a project - which is an idea waiting for the money to do it with. I have to put my idea and your idea together and see what happens. If this is anything like most of my other projects, it will just produce more ideas than money.Originally posted by AWG:
Eric: Just remember where to send the royalty checks...
I would love to know why you think it will fail when it's making framing such a readily available product. It may turn out to be a big waste of time but I think I'll make a road trip this weekend to one of the stores listed (Madison, AL) and do some snooping! Also, how do you know if your companies are competing with you?Originally posted by Peter Ackerman:
After a thorough investigation of this venture, I can say in my humble opinion, that it is only a matter of time before it fails. I still think it is in your best interest to purchase supplies form companies that support you, not compete with you.
