My brother is fairly industrious, at least he tries to be. He has had several decent ideas in the past for assorted websites to create, though he seems to lack the motivation to market said sites after creating them. Yesterday he pitched a new idea to me by saying, "You know that electronics site that I buy from mainly because they accept bitcoins? There are several sites like it that each specialize in different items." I just look at him waiting for him to proceed. "There aren't any that sell books." Still no response as I wait for him to get to his point. "We should make one."
Finally, I reply with, "Where would we get the money to buy stock? Theoretically, if we had reliable transportation, we could list the books and just go buy what we needed to fill an order, but we don't. We would need to have stock on hand."
