Sometimes I like to just kick back and think. Sometimes I think about things like "I wonder what would happen if I shot a rubber band at that customer right there?" But more often I like to think about all my big ideas. Here are two of my ideas that I think would be sure-fire moneymakers.
1. Sani-Mist. You know how you can set a bug-bomb in a room, turn it on, and then return hours later to a room full of multi-legged corpses? My big idea was to develop a product like that that would kill germs. For example, you just know that most day-care centers don't clean and sanitize all of the toys at the end of the day. Theoretically you could set a can of Sani-Mist in the middle of the room, activate it, and it would disinfect everywhere it reached. The marketing possibilites are endless I think. Hospital rooms. Sick rooms at home. If any of you out there are in the chemical business let me know if this is actually viable.
2. Jungle Jim's. This one is a restaurant concept named after my nephew Matt. When he was little he was always jumping off furniture and landing awkwardly. So I called him Jungle Jim. I digress. How many of us have sacrificed our taste buds and eaten at McDonald's just so our kids would play a bit and leave us alone? The idea is a two-story, all-booth restaurant. The upper level features booths surrounding an atrium level, and it would be a quality, full-service restaurant. On the lower level would be a giant play area enclosed with plexi-glass like a hockey rink with only one door going in and out. It would be staffed at the door and by caregivers inside the play area. That way parents can eat a great meal in peace, but still be able to see their kids playing below them. There would be a minimum fee for the play area, plus 30 minutes of free play for the kids once the meal is served. After that "rent" is charged for each 15 minutes thereafter. I would pay it in a second.
Those are my big ideas. I didn't say they were good. Just big.
