Taking Action by Zig Ziglar

Marc Wright, president of the Kiddie Card Company, is one of the youngest entrepreneurs in Canada. He started his business when he was just six years old after listening to some motivational tapes. Following a visit to an art museum, Marc thought he would make some drawings and see if he could earn money. His mother suggested he put his pictures on cards and sell them. He was an immediate success with some rather unique concepts.

Marc knocks on doors and gives his short, but effective sales talk. "Hi. My name is Marc, and I'm freezing! I'm selling greeting cards. How many would you like to buy? Here's a handful. Just pick the ones you want and pay me what you want." His cards are hand-drawn on pink, green and white paper. They cover the season of the year, and Marc sells them about three days a week. He averages about 75 cents a card and sells about 25 cards an hour. 

His first year in business, Marc earned $3,000, enough to take his mom on a trip to Disney World.

By age ten, Marc had become something of a media celebrity. He appeared on Late Night with David Letterman and was interviewed by Conan O'Brien. 

Marc had an idea, didn't count his birthdays, received some encouragement from his mother, and started his business.

Question: Do you have an idea that's marketable? If you do, take action!
