Remember on Wednesday when I told you about the “7 Day Challenge” I issued for myself, and asked you what type of business I should start?
Umm, if you don’t, you need to check this out — the post got almost 100 comments and the tribe came up with some CRAZY ideas — suggesting everything from bank robbing to bake sales.
The premise of the challenge is pretty simple: In 7 days, I’m going to attempt to start a business from scratch that generates at least $1,000 in profit.
There are only 3 rules:
- The business cannot be something I’ve done before — so this means internet freelancing, marketing and related hustles are out.
- I cannot use the Tribe as leverage — you won’t see me asking anybody on Rich20 to purchase. I’ll show you what I’m doing because I HAVE to, so I guess there will be a certain amount of risk…but there won’t be any sales emails, calls to participate, etc. You don’t need an email list to start a business, and I need you to SEE that!
- My initial budget for getting started has to be $25 or less — this is to prove that no matter who you are, or what your situation is, you can DO this.
You gave me great suggestions, and I’ve decided what I’m type of business I’m going to launch.
It’s about to go down…
Is it just early, or am I extremely hungry?
PALEO is huge right now, and I think the diet protocol itself is ok. I have no feelings for or against it.
But what I DO love about this diet is the devotion of its followers.
Much like the Crossfitters they often overlap with, Paleo dieters are EXTREMELY devoted.
It’s a little cult-ish, actually.
The Unique Selling Proposition (USP): There have already been successful Paleo/raw food snack subscription services, but there’s a hole in the OFFICE space. Nobody is providing high-quality paleo snacks to the work place.
Why the hell not?
Think about it: People who are devoted to the Paleo lifestyle LIVE it 24/7…but most offices buy cheap nabisco crap from Costco.
Devotees everywhere are crying (and sneaking in their own snacks in their desk drawers.)
Shouldn’t we solve their problem?
Shouldn’t we take away their pain?
Now I have to make sure this idea is something people will buy. It seems sound, but I’m not sure.
1.) Do you think it’s a good idea?
2.) How should I go about validating it?
Leave me a comment, and let’s LAUNCH THIS THING!
