Product Notes

The Secret of Success Synopsis The Secret of Success describes a struggle for financial survival between Will, a perseverant optimist pursuing the impossible, and Peg, the ruthless woman who bets against him. Contrasting approaches lead to the same pot of gold as Will and Peg discover that each needs the other. Act I Will Solomon obtains approval to develop The Secret of Success, software that makes investment decisions, from a Board of Directors that secretly hates him. In it's maiden run, the software chooses Caulwell Communications. Peg March of Spider Magazine interviews Jay Caulwell, CEO of Caulwell Communications. Spider is known for "Spider's Curse" because companies appearing on it's cover often fail soon afterwards. Peg decides to profit from the curse by selling Caulwell Communications short. Jay fiddles while his company burns by writing a book about how humble he is. Act II Will, pleased that his software has succeeded by telling him the best time to sell his stock in Caulwell Communications, must compromise with his board, who designates him to give an interview to Peg March in the secret hope that he will fall victim to Spider's Curse. Peg, interviewing Will for the cover of Spider Magazine, learns that his software has chosen Spider as it's next investment. When Peg gets over being flattered, she realizes that Will's choice has put her in a tricky situation. She has already set in motion a plan to profit from Spider's Curse by selling Will's company short in the expectation that Will's software, and then Will's company, will fall victim to the curse. She now realizes that for Will's software to fail, Will's software's choice-Spider Magazine-must fail too. She therefore leaves Spider and visits Will's board as a freelance reporter, encouraging them to vote on Will's fate. When the vote splits, Will suggests that Peg cast the deciding vote. Feigning reluctance, Peg does so, and liberates Will from the board by letting him go. Will decides to start his own company with his Secret of Success. Peg, tired of profiting from the follies of fools, decides to ally herself with a rising star by funding Will's startup.
