A Fool and his business were parted
30 May 2015 | by yastepanovSee all my reviews

I want to feel sorry for David Klein, but I can't.

He created a fantastic product: The Jelly Belly jellybean, but he seems purely unsuited to either running a business or even getting decent advice.

Had this man (who attended law school) simply hired a lawyer, he could have probably retained a small minority share in what is Jelly Belly today and been rich. He didn't. At every turn, when confronted with a situation, he seems to have taken the quick but easy way.

To be honest, David Klein invented the Jelly Belly, but then he more or less stopped. He is NOT responsible for the massive success of the company, but wants to be treated as if he was.

He wanted his contract manufacturing company to expand -- with them taking all the risk -- and was surprised when they turned the tables on him.

Since the story is one-sided and still doesn't make him out to be much of a sympathetic character.
