Well here’s one way to eliminate the competition I guess:
Our “Entrepreneur” was still living at home with his parents when he launched two online sports apparel businesses specializing in â€œretroâ€? or â€œthrowbackâ€? sports jerseys. These jerseys are a booming, multi-billion dollar industry, crowded with competitors, and in the early going he was selling only a couple shirts a dayâ€”at $200 to $300 a pop.
Then he allegedly came up with a plan to jumpstart sales. Did it involve expanding his inventory? Overhauling his web sites? Launching a marketing blitz? Nope. Our Entrepreneur took another tack entirely. He went out and hired a hacker.
I didn’t realize hacking came so cheap:
The agreed-upon payment for his services? A watch and several pairs of knock-off designer sneakers.
I think I’ll blame this on Google too. 😆 [joking]
