Analysis of the market when launching your new product line is quite tedious and exhausting, to some they try to convince investor with data taken inside cyberspace which is not a good idea, freebies from cyberspace doesn't mean it will sell when finally withdrawn from the web, it doesn't mean that all cyberspace users like what they see or read, it doesn't mean that all are willing to spend just because a lot had visited your website, so let it be a lesson to all investors that the cyberspace is not at all reliable in making surveys, market reports, financial report being made by fund managers convincing us to invest in a particular product to be bankable when the reality of it is a total FLOP.

Don't accept "NO" for an answer if you have to drag His butt out then do so.
