It happens… after many years of working in the same profession, I have accomplished pretty much all I can. After all, having been selected as “employee of the year” for 2014 from among 7,000 people, what else is left? You know when you have reached the point of no return… same old same old gets rather boring. It is time for a bold move.
Since my spouse has retired, we are not bound to remain in the same location any more.
So last week while I was in Hawaii, I explored alternate business prospects that I can do to close out the remainder of my work life before I retire. Wouldn’t be so bad to do that… move to Hawaii, enjoy the consistently warmer weather, no snow, and sunshine. My spouse looks so good in a Speedo…
But I digress. Effective today, I am now the proud owner of a new footwear franchise in a major mall…
What do you think?
Man, think of all the money to be made from the phenomenal number of people who wear these things and own dozens of them! Men…women…children… and especially the metrosexual men who need to show off their newly manicured feet.
I’ll be rich! Pay US$0.10 each to import soles and $0.05 for the footbands — all from high-quality factories in China — and sell these things for $5 per pair to locals, $12.95 to typical unsuspecting tourists or 2 pair for $20, and voi-la! There you have it! The business model projects first-year net revenue after expenses of at least US$250,000. A recipe for riches!
My spouse and I have put our house on the market. I have put my boot collection — the entire thing — up on eBay. By June, we will be basking in the riches of sunshine at my new store and our new home!
Just imagining the thought… made me sick. That is why I have been off work the past two days. Sorry … “April Fools!”
Life is short: remember, flip-flops are for the trash. Period. (And NO, my boot collection or the house I built are not for sale!)
