Chris Schutte assembles a shipping box in the packing area in the garage of his Suwanee home.

Before he knew it, his crazy idea seemed to be taking off. But sales fell short. One low point found him taking back tens of thousands of steamers from QVC when it couldn't sell them. Schutte hasn't given up, but he knows the time to make his dream come true may be coming to an end.

The starting salary ...
