Historical Tidbit:

Ken Fishel founded the company of $400 worth of White Motor stock. Once formed, the company prospered, making $7,000 in its first five months. But the summer of 1937 brought hard times, and in 1938 the company went broke. “I knew the business was there, and I didn’t want to do anything else, so I tried again,” Ken later recalled.
