Big Kahuna Boards designs and manufactures skateboards. Their business has been suffering for several years. Recently they’ve been talking with Roger Williams, who lives in California. Roger is a professional skateboard coach. He never made it big as a professional skateboarder, but has been extremely successful coaching young skateboarders who have gone on to receive various national awards and rankings. Roger is a member of the National Alliance of Skateboarders. He is now coaching Van Winner and Annette Augustine, both of whom are ranked in the top five of national skateboarders.

Big Kahuna Boards, Inc. wants him to commit to providing them with an average of 200 hours of consulting work per year. They will pay him $20,000 the first year. After the first year, Roger will receive an additional $5000 per year if sales increase by 5% in that first year. Big Kahuna Boards has also agreed to pay Roger a bonus of $10,000 for each “top ten” skateboarder Roger is able to convince to put their “name” on one of Big Kahuna Boards skateboards.
