Maxine was a lady that approached me - wanted to get to know me - liked the look of me and was very forward.
I explained to her that I was not interested but would talk with her.
She said she was studying law I told her about My Study Buddies and that I could help her in her studies for a bit of fun.
She said she was a lady of substance in her homeland - with shares in land - she was a musician so I explained that I could feature her on FACX-TV .
The discussion went on to business and she asked me to help her with a recipe book - which I said I already do with Wythenshawe Good Foods.
All was going well we were dovetailing and I was prepared to help her.
I pointed her towards Business Model Canvas and came up with a strategy where she had to invest £100 per month to secure my services and to create a business plan over 5 years to the sum of £25k,
The plan was ti introduce her as a reseller of Ecoglobe then set up a clothing brand. She said that she had contracts in Manchester with a firm that manufactured shirts. I explained that we could do a range of shirts for oversized golfers - larger sizes than what M&S sell and set up golf shops throughout the world,
All was going civilised and I did two days development to set it up. When asked for financial commitment she said she had other priorities.
She has now left my company - she has gone without exchanging details - a total timewaster - not untypical with what I have had to deal with for 14 years.
All is not lost - I simply go it alone - the cost to get a few designer tee shirts made is pennies - I will do then for myself and buy them myself - just for fun and the hell of it (IT).
