If you could start any business, what would you start?
 
Think of what is needed in society, and if you could start any business, what would it be?

if it had to start a business for me: I would own record label and bang a bunch of young talentless girls and then produce their records out of fear of a sexual harrassment suit.

If it had to start a business for the better of society: I would start a Pinon Factory provide the world with new mexicos best pinon nuts. When is pinon season again? I need to have my family send more...

A little teaching business showing people a few little things they can do to manage their monthly budget a bit better.

Too many people go into credit card debt and stuff like that. All I'd have to do is show them a few little things and they'd be like Jesus H Christ why haven't I been doing that all along??

Debt management is an epidemic in this country.

I'd start a battery business. The goal would be to improve the battery technology. Ya know, make them hold more power, last longer, etc.

Then, I'd start moving into solar energy and collect as much energy to store in my batteries as possible. I'd try to improve the efficiency of solar collection. The goal would be to provide the cleanest and most abundant energy source ever.

I'd add on to saden's idea and also be a brewmaster. A brewmaster and a chemist. Finding a beer to produce the same buzz with none of the drunk after-effects.

You'd be my hero. I was at 2 college football games on Saturday and I couldn't enjoy them all that much because I was so hungover from Friday. In one day I was hungover, then drunk, and then hungover again and it really sucked.

For my magic business I would copy off some Japanese place that I once saw on TV. For an hourly rate you get to go in a room full of furniture and just destroy everything. Basically, it's like hitting a pillow to get rid of stress, only on a much bigger scale. I think I would need to watch most Skins games in a room like that.

Re: If you could start any business, what would you start?
 
A few years ago a friend and I started a company that filmed local high school football and basketball games then edited them down and posted them online as well as made DVDs to send to different colleges. It was useful for second tier players looking for that extra push to get a scholarship, and for coaches who didn't have the time to travel to see these players. They could just request the DVD or sign on to the website and watch the player.

Unfortunately, some shady dealings by the high schools we dealt with left us broke and out of business. Plus my friend didn't really treat it as a business. With the right business model it could work. It was also strange to deal with some of these college coaches, because these days they want to recruit younger and younger. It's creepy when Seth Greenberg calls you and says he heard about this 11-year old in Maryland, would I mind going to his game Friday night and videotaping him. It made me feel like the bicycle shop dude from Diff'rent Strokes.

A traveling library for kids. Big trailers that would go to lower income neighborhoods on weekends and kids coud walk into the trailer and sit and read some books and do activities.

Could be on to a nice little niche like midget porn!

I already am, I grew up by Gettysburg, used to spend almost every summer weekend there. :)



Ok, I'd start a 3rd-party border security business since the government isn't reliable enough to do the job right. They could contractually hire me, as long as they don't place any limitations on my tactics based on emotions. If it's legal...let me do it. Hey...isn't it legal to shoot someone on your lawn in Texas? :) I wouldn't have to shoot them, just shoot AT them.

Oh, we'd cover the NORTHERN border too.

Yeah. I shell out $50 once every 3 months or so to get my miniature schnauzer (the little dogs with the beard) all cleaned up and trimmed. Over the course of three months she gets downright nasty, especially the beard.

But you set up a shop in the right neighborhood, you can catch all the rich old ladies who bring their toy poodle in once a week for a bath, trim, and blast of perfume.

PS It's a crime if you're paying someone else to walk your dog! That's bonding time between man and man's best friend!!

Another profitable business would be a snowball salesman outside of home Philly Eagles games. Not the kind you eat, the kind they throw.

How are those dogs for people with allergies?

My wife is allergic as hell with animals, but we'd both love a dog.

It IS legal to shoot someone who trespasses on your lawn and "threatens" you here in TX.

A buddy of mine and I always talk about opening a pub, or creating our own microbrew. We also thought about creating a beer that would be cheap like Natty or Beast, but have the flavor and character of your more expensive beers.

Fantastic, in fact that's one of the major reasons we chose a miniature schnauzer. We're not allergic to pet dander, but we have family that is, and we didn't want them to suffer when coming over to our house.

Min schnauzers don't shed (their hair grows instead and needs to be trimmed). They're a hypoallergenic breed, as are most terriers.

Great personality. They have chameleon-like moods; if you want to get them excited and get them playing, they'll follow your example and emulate your mood. Or if you want them to just chill out and lay down next to you, just chill on the couch and they'll emulate your mood. Good with kids too, if that's an issue.

Only downside I can think of, they can be expensive. A pure bred puppy with champion bloodlines can run up to $1000. Pure bred without the great pedigree, you're still talking $500.

But we got ours from a breeder. She was 6 years old at the time, and was a former show dog, and the breeder was just using her as a puppy factory (just cranking out puppy litters). At age 6, they reach the time for doggy menapause, and the breeder was pretty much willing to give her away. We bought her from them for $100 and it has worked out great. If you're serious, check the American Kennel Club's website for schnauzer breeders in your area, give them a call, and ask if they have any adult dogs you can take off their hands. It feels good too, because it's not quite like a rescue from the SPCA, but you're still getting the dog away from a life of living in a cage.

Here's a picture of her:

Thanks. She gets a lot of chuckles when we pass people on the street while walking around the neighborhood. The beard and eyebrows are funny.

Some of these are good.
They need to be a value to society. Something that people need. What need does society have that isn't being fulfilled?
