How can just a couple of guys (there are two men on La Spa’s payroll) manage product development, production, quality control, logistics, accounting, sales and a thousand other small things?
In fact, the answer is very simple. While inventing the bicycle is undoubtedly one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind, inventing “outsourcing” was undeniably a major breakthrough from the point of entrepreneurship. And believe it or not – it really works. Not always, but it works. As long as there is a sufficient supply of those professional engineers, logisticians, accountants etc, who are able and want to provide the necessary services at reasonable prices and high quality. And then you must be man enough yourself to harness all these different professionals to drive your own cart…
One thing is for sure, that if a necessity arises (and in the future it certainly will), we shall ask somebody else to join the gang. But not before… Because in addition to everything else each gang member in the office wants to be paid (and not poorly at that). And who else will pay that salary if not the taxpayer? (True, in our case the income tax is replaced by a whirlpool and buying it or its price is luckily not declared as mandatory by the national bath law.)
