Want to start a business? Steal my ideas!

I’m an idea guy.  I have new ideas every day.  I see the world and wonder why doesn’t this happen or why doesn’t this exist.  I also look at some of the new businesses out there and think, hey, you can do the same thing for (fill in another industry).

Mitch Hedberg was famous for saying “when I think of something funny, I either reach for a paper and write it down or just convince myself it wasn’t funny.  For years I have been writing down my ideas when I was in the mood or motivated and other times, I just convinced myself it was a bad idea.

I know that many of my ideas probably suck.  That being said, I am sure that some of them are decent, good or even great.  I also know that ideas are a dime a dozen and it is execution (read: thousands of decisions executed properly) that turns an idea into a business.  I know that I don’t have the time, energy or motivation to execute on all of my ideas but, maybe you do.  That’s why I am putting my ideas out there and letting anyone use them if they are interested and motivated.  If you do use one of my ideas or get motivated to do something based on one of my ideas, let me know.  It will make my day.

I’m not sure how I am going to post my ideas yet.  Maybe as their own posts and maybe just by updating this post with new ideas as I come up with them or as I feel like it.  In the meanwhile, I am just going to get started here because the best thing you can do is the right thing, the second best is the wrong thing and the worst thing you can do is nothing.  Remember: ready, fire, aim!

I’m happy to expand on any of these ideas and discuss them in more detail. Just shoot me a message.

Ideas:

  1. Luxury showers in business districts, airports and malls.  – the most relaxing, refreshing, energizing experience.  Like a car wash for people with a choice of water pressure, treatments, lotions, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, etc.  Just choose your preference and enjoy.
  2. S-Hit List – People love to complain about companies that they hate.  They also like to tell the world about companies that they love.  Hit List/Shit List (or whatever you want to name it) will allow people to choose from all the companies in the world and add them to one of their lists to let the world know what they think and why they think that.  It can be based on Facebook pages or some other database of companies.  It can be a Tinder like swipe right for “hit list” and left for “shit list”.  After a while, you can rate the worlds most loved and hated companies with lots of stats to back it up.  Lots of data and opportunities to work with companies within the system.

More ideas to come…

Enjoy!
