Anyone got a great idea that just might work? Minimal capital outlay and makes around a $1000 per week? Don't need to be a rocket scientist to start it up and it is not hard work?
How about this one then? $5000 buys a second hand van, $500 to signwrite it up in your chosen company name ("Lights R us" springs to mind) $500 for business cards and a letter drop in a suburb. BUY $2000 of every kind of light globe imaginable (from 20 watt to 100 watt bayonet and edison, small, large ALL of them) Now keep in mind that MOST people have a 60 watt GE bayonet light globe in just about all of their homes. Finally a small step ladder for $150 and a nice pair of overalls for another $150. Total spend $8,300.00
You then start at one end of the street in any given suburb and knock on the door and TELL them this;-
"I will change ALL of your light globes in your house for $10"
The home owner says "YES". You then bring in a box FULL of every kind of light globe and it looks marvellous! You take out their light globe and replace it with the shiny new one from the store. You then place their old one in the packet the original store one came in and place it back in the box.
Go next door and repeat the same action. Now what happens is that Mrs Kafoops at home number 1 light globe ends up in Mr Smythes house next door and so on and so forth. ALL FOR $10 a throw.
You are not breaking any laws. You are not telling them they are new light globes. Read what I have written. You are only offering to change them. Not sell them a new one.
Yes there will be some lights that are genuinely broken so you will eventually have to buy more stock. The game goes on.
Now I figure you should be able to do about 30 homes a day once you get good at it. A nice little earner of $1500 per week on a lousy $8,300 outlay.
Anyone else got any GREAT ideas on how to make money?
P.S. Still working on a system whereby 1000 people give me $20 per week. You do the math !
