Comment by Edward - April 24, at 2: I had a dream of running a concierge service in a tourist town in Tennessee.
It is a very faminly oriented town with over hotel rooms within a ten mile radius. The number 2 place to get married in the world behind vegas.
I tried to start the business a few years ago with mixed results I just didnt have enough capital to continue while working 2 full time jobs to support it and a family. I offered discount tickets to shows and attractions, restaurant reservations, hotel reservations, flower deliver, food delivery more then just pizza , vacation planning, phone rental, and bicycle rentals.
Working in the area I always knew the best places and when someone comes into town after a long drive they stop at the first place with a vacancy sign sometimes good but mostly bad.
Dont make your vacation suck because you just dont know where to go thats where I came in. I knew where you can get the best service, rooms, flowers, attractions, and everything else so you didnt have to make that mistake. Forget flowers for your anniversary one call to me and I can have them delivered.
Never miss that occasion again. I had it all worked out I just didnt have the cash or time really to make it happen.
Anyone want to help???? April 23, at 9: The Supertanker Defense Corporation. This company relies primarily on remote and wireless components and technology to protect supertakers from pirates. The first set of components used for protection is autonomous remote surveillance aircraft that are small often hand held and can be easily operated off of the deck of the ship.
These small aircraft that weigh less than 40 pounds but can carry payloads of more than 50 pounds. They can be equipped with surveillance and infrared cameras that remotely transmit video back to the home base the ship. They can be set to take off, fly patterns and return completely autonomously. Once the video is relayed back, if it is in fact pirates, a small unmanned surface vessel USV is then deployed to intercept the ship and warn it to turn around or change course.
These USV are also available through a number of domestic and foreign defense and robotics corporations that also sell then for commercial use.
They can puncture rubber inflatable boats, blow holes in the side of metal and fiberglass boats, and netrualize human targets. Price and ROI structure: The first company to hire us pays for all of the equipment up front they own the equipment.
I would suggest 3 surveillance and 3 armed 2 and 2 for regular use and on backup each. Other companies will have to pay a much higher premium, which we can figure out as we work the system out, but we will be making money figuring out the system in the meantime. From you, most valuable would be your name and involvement, as it would give the venture credibility.
Comment by Clay - April 23, at 6: My husband and I own several businesses and still owe on several businesses that no longer exist. Our 17 yr old son just opened a paintball field. Our most successful ideas and most solid business did not need hundreds of thousands to start up and create profit. Even more amusing is the people that whine about publicly posting their ideas.
DOING takes more effort than most people are willing to give. We are transparent about how we run our business, anyone could duplicate what we do. Kudos to you, Mark. The most interesting stories are the ones that will never be on this blog — the people you inspired to start moving and making it happen.
