Almost any hobby can become a business. How financially successful it becomes will require research before investing and opening front doors to receive customers. For example, fishing may be your hobby. However, if you live in a fishing community where every household supports its family by fishing. Why would you want to sell fish to people who fish for personal meals and occupational income? The business is doomed to fail. So, to sum up, if you were looking for a horse to race, and didn’t want to spend more than the horse was likely to earn in its racing career, Timonium was a tough sale. If you were a big spender, you could get a very nice horse, although most of those million-dollar and high six-figure purchases never do pay back their purchase price. And if you were a pinhooker, enough money was rolling in so you could head back to the yearling sales this summer and fall and keep the wheel turning round one more time.
Schultz was hired to manage retail sales and marketing for a small coffee distributor who had a few retail outlets in Seattle. He was twenty-nine and just married. He and his wife left their home in New York City to accept this new job. About a year later, Schultz visited Italy on a buying trip. As he wandered around Milan, he noticed how important coffee was to the Italian culture. Typically, the workday starts with a cup of rich coffee at a coffee bar. After work, friends and colleagues once again meet at the coffee bar for a leisurely stop before heading home. It is a center of Italian social life. Schultz visualized this transferred to America. It had never been done, but he felt it could work because of the high quality of Starbucks coffee.
What is important is not that General Motors, Edison, and the Rothschilds became great and strong; it is that they started near the bottom. Whether the penniless Prussian officer Siemens, or the half – deaf, almost unschooled, errand boy Edison; the provincial, awkward – not to mention Jewish – Rothschilds in a world of prejudiced, arrogant aristocrats, or the undeveloped Japanese clans of 1860; they all started with nothing, except a systematic approach. Even General Motors, while a large corporation for the America of 1920, was a poor second to ford. One can argue, of course, that even without any such approach Siemens and Edison would have been notable inventors, the Rothschilds well – known bankers, and General Motors a sizeable company. What gave them leadership, however, was the systematic approach with which they applied their ability to the opportunities time and history had put within their grasp.
Ok guys, listen up. You want to be the talk of the bar, learn to sing this song even halfway decent and the results will pay dividends.

It is usually planned by the third member of the team, Danielle Dolbey, who sets up meetings in advance. There are times Frank and Mike strike out with a potential seller, so they must freestyle and look for a deal. They scour the streets looking for an old garage,barn,vacant building and knock on some doors.
