Hi guys my parents are immigrants here in the US. my father is struggling with his business, has been struggling since day one. He works like a donkey and makes no money. What he does is he buys electronics from wholesalers and goes around the city, store to store, and offers the stores these items. but he makes very little money, like he buys 10 memory cards for 2.50 and sells them for 2.75 (if he is lucky and his customers dont argue with him over the price). after you factor in the price of gas and all the other BS like people breaking things and returning it, he makes no money. Now another problem is he pays his suppliers upfront, but he doesn't get paid upfront. He gives his customers way too much credit. like right now, there are customers that owe him $4,000, $3000, $2500. I told him to ask for cash upfront, but he says "they won't buy if I ask for cash upfront" and he is right, they won't. they have no reason to buy from him when they can buy on ebay and from various other suppliers for less than my dad's purchasing price. one customer that owed $2500 just disappeared. That's right, he just closed his shop, phone number disconnected. goodbye to $2500. I am wondering if you guys have any ideas for someone like this. I was thinking he could be a cab driver, but he doesnt know enough english for that, and besides, he thinks too highly of himself and probably thinks that's "beneath" him. so any ideas?
