Jerry always wanted to run his own manufacturing business. Jerry needed a special machine that cost $40,000. After all of the other start- up expenses, Jerry only had $30,000 remaining to purchase this machine. Jerry’s good friend Mike came to the rescue and loaned him $10,000 to help Jerry buy the machine. The loan was a simple loan with a balloon payment of $11,000 at the end of two years. This represents approximately a 5% annual interest rate, which was the going market rate at the time the loan was made.

Case Study 1: More Than a Paycheck Lemuel Greene was a trainer for National Home Manufacturers, a large builder of prefabricated homes. National Home had hired Greene fresh from graduate school with a master’s degree in English. At first, the company put him to work writing and revising company brochures and helping with the most important correspondence at the senior level. But soon, both Greene and senior management officials began to notice how well he worked with executives on their writing, how he made them feel more confident about it, and how, after working with an executive on a report, the executive often was much more eager to take on the next writing task.

Good people—valuable employees—quit their jobs every day.

Good people—valuable employees—quit their jobs every day. Usually, they leave for better positions elsewhere. Consider the case of an experienced underwriter in a Northeastern Insurance Company named Kane, who scribbled the following remarks on his exit interview questionnaire: “This job isn’t right for me.
