He ended up selling the company for half a million dollars when competition with bigger companies got too tough. He's back to working as an electronics engineer. He showed me a new golf product he invented that a company is already producing.
Hector then showed me several of his golf caddies that he's had autographed by celebrities at golf tournaments.
I said, "Wow, making money and hobnobbing with famous people. I have to invent something. At what age did you start tinkering around with things?"
Hector said, "In school...I would make things out of wood. I won top honors for one art project I made out of a four-inch piece of wood."
We walked into another room and he showed me this thing that had small drawers. It reminded me of an eighth-grade wood-shop class I had and how I couldn't get the drawers to fit properly.
So much for my dream of coming up with the next big product. When I get to Costco, it'll be for free samples.
