I don't mean your own, of course. Although that can be profitable for someone else but I don't THINK it'll do you much good.I've always had a pretty morbid curiosity with death. I even sold funeral plans for a while. Best part of that gig was working at the mortuary. Something so fascinating working around people who are there, but…

I got a bee in my bonnet recently to test the waters on making liquid nitrogen ice cream. I had read about it in some magazine a while back and since my collectible manufacturing business is slower during the summer and our building is right on a main thoroughfare, I thought it might be a novel way of supplementing our…

I absolutely love my 1994 Lexus LS400. Even though it has more than 200K miles on it, it still runs like a dream and has held up very well inside and out. (Oh! And it's paid for.)I've been ruminating on this idea for a few months. Why not rent used luxury cars for as much as a the big companies…

I love going to the state fair or even the local county fair with my family. It's always a fun time. Especially when you have children the age of my daughter. Haley is just over 2 years old and every day is a new discovery.There are LOTS of young families that go to outdoor amusement activities like carnivals, fairs and…

Every once in a while I'm going to give you some wisdom on tools and resources that are out there to use in support of a business that you may be planning or already implementing.The first one I'm going to write about is one very dear to my heart. It's called Mals-E. The site is named after the guy that…

If you got some time on your hands and you are willing to work, there IS money in this. Probably not much, but hey... I'm just the idea man here. You figure out if you want to actually implement it. :-)I have all my toll free numbers through a nifty company that sells not only regular toll free numbers, but…

I got this idea about 6 months ago or so. I wanted to try out one of those satellite radios (in this case, XM Radio) but I didn't want to buy one before trying it out. I didn't want to have to go through all the hassle of buying and activating it if I didn't end up liking it. I…

I've had this idea for the longest time. We own two cats (or they own us... semantics.) Where ever we've lived, I've always had this intense hatred for the cat box. I hate dirty stuff inside the house, yet they are indoor cats so they have to have a place to go inside. Catch-22 situation.In our last house, I had…

This is one of the better ideas out of the many that came to me today. So good, I've already reserved a domain for it... just in case I want to launch it in one of my all too infrequent spare moments. The domain I registered was suckdirt.com.The idea, like so many of my ideas, is one you can start…

My name is Dan Sherman and I'll be a your guide on this journey. I started this blog to give written record to the insanity that is my life. I am what you would call absolutely obsessed with the notion of creating businesses and it's even more fun when they actually make money.Everyone thinks of ways to make money every…
