The Mousetrap

Scott A. Clark said: “Aspiring entrepreneurs believe the secret to success to be developing a new innovative, exciting product. After all, they remember well Emerson who said: Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. My job is to tell you here and now that if you believe this saying, you’re bound to fail. Truth is, it’s better to aggressively market an average mousetrap, than build an outstanding one and wait for people to call.”

Tuvalu, one of the world’s smallest countries, has the world’s smallest population after that of the Vatican. Because of that, it has a very low GDP. When Tuvalu wanted to join the United Nations, it discovered it would cost 100,000$, which it didn’t really have. Tuvalu then decided to offer for sale its attractive top-level domain – .tv – to commercial companies and individuals, assuming it would be a popular domain name with the television business. Tuvalu was right – a Canadian businessman bought it for 50,000,000$ and started a company named DotTV.

Luck is one thing – but knowing how to use it creatively is another!

When only one year after its launch, the construction of the 381 meter tall Empire State Building was done, the disappointed Chrysler refused to pay architect William Van Allen, who planned the building.
