During a recent stay near Ford Motor Company headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan I read how Henry Ford dealt with big barriers in life. Not everyone was supportive of Ford's idea to transform American automobile manufacturing so ordinary people could afford cars. It was a strange idea to most and took some time for the world to get used to. Imagine him describing the first huge new factory and car assembly line concept to finance people or to craftsmen accustomed to carefully completing one new sophisticated automobile at a time in small workshops. The market was clueless. Potential customers had no idea they wanted affordable cars. They would've just asked for faster horses, he would later joke. So, imagine the odds he faced.
