The founder of a new company that claims to help people become rich from the back of a van says he doesn’t know if the person behind it is the right one to be running it.
“The company that I’m building is not for me, it’s for my family,” Michael Boggs, who says he is a former corporate executive and entrepreneur, said.
“My wife, I have no clue what she does.
I’m not the person that she is.”
Mr Bogg, who founded Bogg-O-Matic, a travel-oriented spa business, said he was approached by a potential investor to partner with him in the project after his son was killed in a motorcycle crash.
But his son’s family, who were in Australia at the time of the crash, was not interested in a return to the US, he said.
“They wanted me to move overseas and that’s where my family’s going,” Mr Bogg said.
The Bogg family have owned Boggmatic since 1999 and have since expanded to include an online business.
Mr Buggs said he is now looking to hire a team of about 40 people, which would bring the company’s total to about 200 people.
“I’m thinking of putting in 100-150 people, because there’s no way I’m doing that with a team,” he said, adding he did not want to put too much focus on who would run the company.
“There are plenty of other people that are good and have a lot of experience in the space that I’d be happy to have.”
That’s not a problem for me.
“Mr Tufnel said he and his partners were in discussions with investors and potential investors, but had not received any positive feedback.”
It’s not going to be a success,” he told the ABC.”
We’re in a period where we have to be careful not to be too quick to jump on board a business that is not ready to move forward.””
It doesn’t sound like a great idea, but I think that’s what we’re going to have to do,” he added.
Mr Molloy said he did want to do more than just help people who had been affected by the tragedy.”
As a business owner I’m here to do the best I can,” he explained.”
You know that there’s a lot more people that have suffered a loss than I’ve suffered.
“If I could make one positive change, I would want to have been in Australia in the first place.”
