I saw a haircut truck parked outside of start up and I thought, What a great idea here, you have all these people in this big building, we're working all day, a lot of em don't have time to get a haircut and retired. At the end day, and maybe they can't make an appointment, but there you can walk. Side, you see the haircut truck once again. You know it and what it is you maybe thank you know when people are busy, but they still gonna take care of themselves. They stolen. Precisely still gonna get their haircut. What can you bring to them huh make your lives easier what we see in a story with a great result: forty thousand dollars a year, a net income working only a few hours a week It doesn't always happen that way, but if even owing to the show. You also know it's not totally abnormal either for the whole. To think about is what are these success stories haven't common there not just accept there are so many. What can you learned from them?
