We all like making wishes and wishing that they come true but if they were just horses even beggars would ride. Imagine given a chance to make a wish, which was to come true, what would you wish? Think about it, but for me I would desire to have a similar brain like that of Ken Ahroni, with such brains I would have been a billionaire…Probably. Most documentaries shows us how rich people like Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich have big investments, but most of these people started considerable well compared to the likes of Ahron who started off from weird things.
This all started as just a mere idea during one of Ken Ahroni’s birthday. According to their practices, they used to break turkey’s breastbone as a sign of good luck during their birthdays. It was such a coincidence that his birthday and the Turkey day conceded. This made him think of the people who might have lacked a chance of breaking bones and they wanted to, he thought of an idea; plastic wishbones for all, any day any time. Ahroni educational background helped him a lot. He worked with his dad at a family business after graduating from the University of Washington. The business mainly involved manufacturing and importing of Christmas lights. When the business folded, Ken travelled to Taiwan where he became an expert in plastic manufacturing.
When Ken was developing his ideas he realized that there were some things to be put under consideration. First, the bone was to look like the real wishbone or very close enough, also the bone had to be safe for all without injuring anyone. It also had to sound remarkably right when broken. He had to make sure that in order to satisfy the desires of the customers, all these were to be put on place. Because of his efforts’ and determination, he managed come up with plastic wishbones which were digital and were in 3-D.
During the Thanksgiving in 2004, he tested his Lucky Break Wishbones in ten Seattle retailers and it passed well. Ahroni later built a website and began vigorously marketing his products. The fruits of his hard labor later bore sweet fruits when he got a lucrative deal from a world advertising agency. The agency was to modify his idea with their specifications so as to suit a certain special holiday promotion for a major American retailer. Over a million units is what they needed, something that made Ahroni happy, someone is ready to crown my success, little did he know that it was just a beginning of another hustle.
Something had gone a mess with the deal! Even after sitting down and proceeding nicely during the early stages, he realized that he was being double crossed! He took legal action and luckily won the case. Ken Ahroni had passed through lots of difficulties and giving up wasn’t a word in his mind. He saw through everything and now Lucky Break Wishbones are making huge sales in the market. He is one of the most celebrated millionaires on earth.
