Have you ever heard of the parable of the Dead Donkey?

Quote:A city boy, Kenny moved to the country and
bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer
agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer came by to announce, "Sorry son,
but I have some bad news, the donkey died."
Kenny replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."
"Can't do that. I went and spent it already," confessed the farmer.

Kenny thought for a moment, then decided, "OK then, just
unload the donkey."  
The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"
"I'm going to raffle him off."
"You can't raffle off a dead donkey!" argued the farmer.
"Sure I can," enjoined Kenny. "Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked,
"What happened with that dead donkey?"
Kenny proudly responded, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at
2 dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00."

The farmer was stunned. "$898.00? Hmm  Didn't anyone complain?"

Kenny replied, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

The raffle was created and sponsored by my New Zealand dealer at the time, Blair Hollands.  I made sure he put a note on his website that his raffle had nothing to do with Innovator and that Innovator had no involvement in the raffle other than to provide the Mosquito kits when completed at normal dealer cost to him.   I've let him go as a dealer after he took far more money from me then the cost of a ticket.   He's not the first dealer I've had to let go as sometimes in business you are going to run into some bad apples.  The production and quality of the Mosquito has nothing to do with some of the sales people that unfortunately end up not being what I thought they were.  Unfortunately I can only throw out the bad apples after I find out they are bad.
