Problem Solution of Tom Monaghan~

Tom Monaghan faced many problems while creating the well known pizzeria known as Dominos. He started his business during the school year, but the dilemma was that when school ended his business dropped 75%! Tom kept working, and most of all kept making pizzas. Tom then began to work 100 hours a week doing all the jobs himself and started to no longer have time for anything else, so Tom’s solution was to drop out of school. No matter how long and how hard he tried, he still got in debt, therefore, Tom had to work even harder to pay off his creditors. The triumph didn’t last long before a fire started in his anchor store lead to him cutting back on whatever he could to pay the debt of the fire. Tom ran out of money which lead to him giving up the company and taking then downgraded position of president, but the businessman that took on the company wanted out. Yet again Tom gained control of his company. Shortly after he got sued, but he built back his company and paid everyone back.
