Perfect days are daily occurrences in sunny Puerto Vallarta, the popular resort town on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Especially if you own a 50-foot sailboat
and a 30-foot fishing boat, each complete with a four-man crew and personal chef, and in the evening you wind down in your beautiful condominium
on a private beach with friends and family, taking advantage of the priceless sunsets while standing on your balcony overlooking the ocean.
That was life for Harold Forman for more than two years—sport fishing four days a week, eating fresh seafood every day, and living an incredible life of leisure that most
people can only dream of. That ideal life would have been enough for most retirees in their mid-50s, especially those who had accomplished as much as Forman during his
ambitious and successful business career.
But suddenly one morning in 2007 as he fished in the Pacific miles away from civilization, Forman decided that catching blue marlin and yellowfin tuna wasn’t enough for
him anymore. Sitting on his sailboat “just doodling,” as Forman puts it, he began jotting down on paper an idea that had been percolating for some time.
