The Visa Van

I just read a very interesting and humorous article about Adam Humphreys and the business he started.  Adam lives in New York City and wanted to travel to China for a vacation.   While dealing with the Chinese Consulate to acquire the necessary visa, Adam found it very confusing and time consuming.

Realizing he couldn’t be the only one to feel this way, he decided to set up a mobile consulting business to help others who also need to deal with the Chinese Consulate.  Adam parked a large cargo van outside the Chinese Consulate so that frustrated potential customers could find his services immediately.

So far, Adam’s business has been extremely successful.  He has even been able to hire two fluent Mandarin speakers to work with him in assisting clients.
