Entrepreneurs

I'm sure most people have thought about starting their own business. Everyone gets a brilliant idea that has the potential to make money, but most never follow through. I have had many ideas. Unfortunately none of them have worked out. Still I have the desire to be an entrepreneur. There are so many things I would like to do. Just in the music business I would like to have a record label, a hybrid site of this and Sleaze Roxx, a site that sells music, and maybe even a club for glam bands to play in Tulsa. I would like to own my own brewery and maybe even have my own hot sauce company. I would also like to break into the adult entertainment industry. That would be swell to be this generations Hef or Bob Guccione.

 

Anyone else with bright entrepreneurial ideas?

I had an idea very similar to Fantasty Football before Fantasy Football was big business. That was enough of a kick in the teeth to convince me I'll never be an entrepreneur.

I've had cool ideas here and there - These days I would especially like to do something with photography. Nature and porn would be awesome... but especially to travel the globe with a camera would be cool. In all honesty I don't think I could handle porn from behind the camera. I honestly don't think I could do it. In front of it, yeah, sure. Rewind 10 years ago and I would love to have been a part of the scene. :lol:

 

But going out on your own with your own business idea is such a huge leap. Obviously plenty of people are successful, but the ratio of failures to those successes would be pretty astronomical. Call me negative or pessimistic, or just call me a realist, but I've never taken the leap and I'm sad to say I doubt I ever would. :(

 

Ideal lifestyle - to travel the globe as a photographer in stunning tropical locations by day (which would have to include a surf or two daily - after all you can't snap photos all day), and then write novels in my hut on warm tropical nights. :lol: Oh to dream...

 

Good luck if you do, though, mate.

After visiting a chinese resturaunt on the weekend, my idea is to sell knives and forks to the chinese.

Haha. Yeah, I can kind of use chopsticks these days, but it's just not point. Why use something so f*cking difficult where there are easier ways to do it? They're so frustrating and illogical, especially for larger food items.

 

I never bother if I'm the only one, but if I ever go out for Chinese and someone on the table orders a fork and spoon I'll always get in on that action.

Funny that - i had this conversation the other night. I was able to use chopsticks for the first time in my life.... but then went for a spoon instead.

I want to market a marital aid that looks like Elvis' head. It'll have three speeds - "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," and "Jailhouse Rock."

Quality. What will you call it? I'd suggest the "Are You Lonesome Tonight?". You could have a five-speed version with 'All Shook Up' and 'Too Much' as well.

 

I'm sure we could get 'Stuck on You' in there somewhere... :whistle:

After working for the Decepticons for 3 years now I have determined I must make my own way. I despise working for a company that looks at me as more of a liability than asset. It's easy to say I should just look for another employer. I wholeheartedly agree. The problem is more and more companies are adopting the Walmart model. Quality employers are dwindling.

 

I'm ready to start my own business. The problem is I have no idea how. Anyone here an entrepreneur? I want to learn from you. I'm at the point I would be willing to take an unpaid internship.
