Don’t assume my gender, you fascist pig. :coffee:

I'm not just assuming your gender, I'm declaring it without giving you a choice.

My captain cliche genie says buy low sell high and increase volume...business is a numbers game. 1 out of 100 might pay 20 bucks for something worth 5. 1 out of 500 might pay 400 for something worth 100....the idea is, more people that walk through the door the faster inventory moves off the shelf at rip-off prices

Intra-neighborhood sports competitions. Someone should open up various sporting venues for (mostly) middle-aged folks who want to play team sports. The business would be in charge of assessing athletic ability and pairing up members of similar talent. There could be dodgeball leagues or tag football leagues. It'd be a more fun way to get in shape and burn calories.

People pay you on a per-pound basis to eat their leftovers.

"The Bits"-a novelty shop where they sell things like those weird seasoning chunks in chips, cereal dust and Oreo cream by the pound(do they have something like that?)

That's actually a pretty good idea, which could create more bonds among people living in the same district, and fight health issues caused by obesity and sedentary lifestyles! People could definitely pay for that, if it means having fun, and getting to use the club's field, balls and other accessories.

And if I somehow stumble upon a billion dollars on my way to buy TP and chicken tomorrow, I'll buy a couple old fighter planes and organise (with simulated weapons, of course) flying gladiator fights. One thousand times cooler than boxing or MMA, one thousand times more badass than F1, and nobody gets hurt in real life! The only issue is that it'd be difficult to find something less polluting.

Robotic horse racing - huge potential market for designers, engineers, machinists, materials experts, programmers, and fans/gamblers. Heck, it could be an Olympic event.

That’s a pretty neat idea. Delightfully absurd.

Part time or week-end pet provider. Lots of people lead busy lives but they'd still like to have a pet, so there is an unfilled demand for cute part-time pets. You find some desirable orphaned kittens or puppies at the animal shelter and then loan them out to people with the option to adopt. I'm surprised no one has done this yet.

This is a very cool idea! tell me, did you manage to implement it?

Rebecca hello and welcome to typology central. Do you by any chance have any amazing opportunities for us to make money off of?

I'm not motivated or driven to make money, but I am full of terrific ideas.

Fixers for the average Joe. Rich folks have people like Ray Donovan make their problems go away; I think it's about time average people have the same luxury. Basically, you'd subscribe to the services of a fixing company who takes care of various, little problems in your life, like finding a last minute baby sitter, removing a fallen tree, exterminating murder hornets in your backyard, or having a talk with (or gently rough up) the school bully who's tormenting your child. I think many people would pay $100/month for the convenience of this sort of help.

This is another great idea but one which doesn't require much capital. There is a demand for a different type of ladle. Have you ever tried to transfer something from the crockpot or high pressure cooker into a dutch oven on the stove? The ladles currently on the market aren't very effective in scooping up a large volume of liquid because they're like giant spoons. They're not angled properly to scoop up stuff from the bottom of the pot. In addition, most ladles are stainless steel and they scratch ceramic stoneware.

The solution is a ladle shaped like a bulldozer. It needs to be a flat-bottomed ladle so you can scrape stuff off the bottom. I think you can manufacture it out of a silicone plastic so that it doesn't scratch stoneware.

I think there is at least a 10 million household demand for such a ladle. Go get that money, people, before someone else does. I just want someone to make it so I can buy it when it's on the market.

Holographic video games, simulations, etc. Now that people are talking about holograms for communication, we could imagine the reverse process - a holographic environment that comes in a box (like a game console) that you step into. Instead of the image being transferred to an lcd, it would fill up the room you are in, like a projection.

I asked all my friends what kind of business would they open up if they had like 50.000 bucks stashed away and none of them had a useful idea. It seems easy but it isn't. Also a good idea isn't worth much without proper execution.
