Getting and Keeping Your First 1000 CustomersIf you aspire to run your own business — whether you sell t-shirts from a van down by the river, design soup can labels, or haul quick-dry cement to well-dressed yacht enthusiasts at the marina without asking too many questions — the challenge of acquiring a steady clientele can seem overwhelming when you’re first starting out. Customers don’t grow on trees, and they’re not going to magically fall out of the sky. Where do you even begin to find them?

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.
