I've discovered an amazing source for custom made clothing in addition to a great business opportunity. This clothing company allows you to choose colors and styles and fit, for suits, jeans and shirts. You input your measurements (they have very specific how to videos to get the exact measurements you need) and then custom make your items in their Hong…

I've been working on this amazing communication app for more than 6 months. It has finally hit the app store. Check out our site for it at rattle.me. It's a new communications platform that we've initially launched via an Apple app, but will migrate to some very interesting places, eventually.

I wrote about this idea a long time ago. Since then, backup services have become cheaper and cheaper. They are now so cheap, it really doesn't make sense to rely soley on an inhouse backup system that is susceptible to theft and damage during natural disasters, along with the main computer.Check out this $5, unlimited online backup service.  That's right...…

I've been receiving emails from readers of my blog asking when I'm going to post again. This blog is near and dear to my heart, but it's so easy to let it slip because of how busy one can get. I like to think that if an entrepreneur has time to post to their blog, they aren't working hard enough…

I had a small milestone the other day in my entreprenuerial journey. This may have occurred before, but a few days ago is the first day that I actually noticed. I had sales from 5 of my businesses all in one day. That's 5 streams of income that are actually bringing in money. Of course, the challenge is to do…

I think I've touched on this before, but not this particular idea. Why not take an ad out in your local paper or even go door to door ("we're in the neighborhood" kind of thing) and advertise your services to set up a computer backup system for people so they won't lose any of their data if their computer goes…

I finally got around to putting my Verizon EvDO broadband wireless card up for auction on ebay. Not to sell it, but to rent it. Here's my first post regarding this idea. I got several bids and someone won it for $4.25 per day. He's got it reserved for the end of the month, for about 7 days I believe.…

I recently purchased an EvDO card for my laptop so I can have high speed internet access while I'm travelling. (Here's the Verizon site for EvDO.) I used it for the first time at a gift show in Seattle last month. It was FREAKING amazing! I got so much work done during that show, it turned out to be a…

Here's a great way to fund a cross country trip/vacation. Buy about 5 good used Segway machines and get an RV to haul them (and you) around in and set off across America. Stop along the way at parks or parking lots (get permission from the owner... perhaps pay them a measly daily rental fee) and set up shop. Put…

With the housing boom right now, there are so many houses that are being purchased just to turn around in 6 months for a tidy profit. If you have one of those houses, why not get some ongoing revenue out of it without having to deal with tennants in the interim months that you're waiting to sell? Heck, if it's…

I know some of you are following the news regarding my latest "linkpaper" project. Just wanted to let you know I've updated the blog that relates to that project over at Blog County News.

I've been alluding to this project in several of my previous posts. I'm officially unveiling it to my blog readers here and now. Hopefully, there will be others that will pick up on it from here and post it on their own blogs... and the news will spread. I'm getting a bit excited about this project. I've been working on…

Here's a new one for you. Provide an alternative to long term airport parking and/or taxi rides to and from the airport. I'm sure there are plenty of places in your town that are a $50+ one way taxi ride to the airport (from people's houses... etc.) That's $100+ that is spent on a taxi ride if they are using…

Technology is getting to the point that it's quite common now to see all kinds of products that were at one time only available in the thousands, without customization. Now we have things like shoes and M&Ms that can be customized. Tshirts are no different now thanks in large part to machines like this one. Screenprinting on tshirts used to…

I've written about this before, but it's come back to me in spades after reading this bull crap. This has happened to me, as well. At Walmart, no less. The first outfit that offers professional portraits where a family can come in, have a 30 minute session with a photographer, then receive the digital pic files that were just taken,…

Well... maybe. :-)I've been taking a look at this Iraqi dinar investment talk that's being discussed here and there. Most people (investment advisers) are down on the prospects that it'll actually pay off.Essentially, because the Iraqi economy is most likely at it's lowest point going into the future, it's worth maybe speculating a little on its currency. They just issued…

In case you haven't heard, ebay has upped their commissions to their affiliates. You earn commissions for signing people up as ebay members and generating bids on items up for auction. The low figure used to be $15 per sign up. Now it's $20. The per bid commission has gone up as well.Some ebay affiliates make over $1 million a…

When I sold beds for a living (nice pay but awful hours), we were trained in the skill of dropping the price to close the sale. They always stressed to NEVER drop the price without a reason. If you just drop it, for no apparent reason other than to get the sale, the customer catches on and you lose their…

I just read an article about this filmmaker that convinced the city officials in charge of the Golden Gate bridge to set up a camera on public ground to film the bridge 24 hours a day to ostensibly chronicle the "day in the life of the bridge."Turns out he is doing a film about suicide and he wanted to catch…

I hate those ads that quote you can make $X amount per day... etc. However, I fully believe the title of this post to be doable by the average person.First, I've already written a related idea (they both have to do with cat poop) so if you want to read that one first, here it is.More likely than not, you…

You've probably seen the video blooper shows and sometimes they show a montage of cars sliding into one another during ice storms.If you have a particularly bad intersection in your area that gets a little dicey during snow or ice storms, next time you have one, take your video camera to the corner and some warm clothing and essentially camp…

As WiMax evolves and the chips get smaller and more efficient, someone's going to build a flying apparatus that will be WiMax enabled with a really small video camera mounted on it. Something like this only on a much smaller scale.What good is that? Imagine this...Having a very small flying device, equipped with a small survellience type of camera and…

How many cars do you see now with the 2004 election bumper stickers on their backside? I see LOTS of them. They're everywhere. I was smart enough to put my Bush/Cheney sticker on my back window. Putting them on the window allows for a much easier removal.But what about those poor saps that put them on their bumpers? How many…

I just recently signed up for Hollywood Video's MVP program. For a set fee per month, you get to check out 3 movies at one time without paying for them. Only if they're eligible for the MVP program, of course. Which eliminates many of the latest ones. (Our store is the only store in the nation that gets it cheaper…

In keeping with my business concepts and ideas related to the holidays, here's one. It's a business opportunity AND a plan to build a beautiful home for next to nothing.As everyone in America knows, light shows are VERY popular during Christmas. Some people just go overboard but that's great because it gives us lazy bums something to look at and…
