Obviously there is a problem here if his business has hit max productivity but is not generating enough income for him to live in the manner he wants. The reason you are oblivious to this is due to the fact you have already made up your mind that nothing can be done and are now looking for evidence to substantiate your claim. Any rational thinker would look at the scenario, look at all the evidence, and then come to a conclusion. Yes, you might be right that he might not be able to find someone who can build full on suits to his caliber but what if he found someone who can make a really good sleeve, a really good jacket, a really good leg, and then he pieces it together? That would speed up the process a ton and increase productivity. There's boutique fashion providers who have small staffs and intricate product who are making millions...that's because they have built systems. They refine their processes and implement a team to operate it. Acting like there is nothing that this brotha can do is senseless and defeatist mentality.
You're a.ssuming that he would be able to increase his business and still create the same quality suits by having so many people working for him. I never said there is NOTHING he could do, I'm simply stating that hiring more people or charging more isn't the obvious choice. Don't talk to me like I'm simpleton. I was a marketing major in college and understand how business works. You can't just a.ssUME, that if he did one thing it would increase his profits or business...if he could hire 4 people, he has to pay 4 people, and you're a.ssuming he'd pull in THAT much more money. He might make 10-15 grand more if he was LUCKY, having to pay skilled crafters and that is a.ssuming people would be as interested in a suit made by 5 people as one made by 1 person. ANYTHING he does could change his business for better or worse, and you are looking at it as if it could only get better. You a.ssume theres a market for $4,000 suits made by 5 people, but that might not be the case.
