Even though an optimistic mind will argue that opportunities always abound, but in actual sense of it, how often do golden opportunities come beckoning on ones door step?
The answer is an open secret, it’s as rare as mega million dollars.
Back to my story; It so be that he attended such a very important training/seminar where he was opportune to meet and interact with captains and industry leaders who have the capacity to influence decision in his favor.
Selling his idea to one of these figures, he appears to had cracked the code, when suddenly his business card was demanded for further conversations to seal the deal properly.

As simple as that sounds, he lost everything that he was left with not even a second chance to do a damage control.
