Do I need a business plan? I cannot tell you how often I get this question. Early in my career, I was an avid supporter of Business Plans. Not the business plan itself per se, but the planning process. Planning in itself is crucial to the success of a business-or so I thought. However, over the years I have become more of a cynic.
I want to confess something: I have a secret. One of the things I do in my spare time is peruse Craigs List for enjoyment. I read the employment,wanted and even the personal ads. You get a chance to see humanity at its most vulnerable. It really is a entertaining to read. It was during this time that I began to realize that Craigslist is also a great place to start your entrepreneurial journey. You can pick up odd tasks, jobs, but just watch out for scams!
Once in a while (like once a week) you get some really interesting “opportunities”. Today was that day this week, and I just thought this one was too good not to share.It provides a perfect opportunity for someone seeking to earn some extra cash, albeit in kind of a weird way…..
This post was found in Victoria’s Craiglist:
65 $ CDN cash immediately after the job
I need to be baptized in a body of water
I will provide your pool pass if needed
YOU: ABLE TO READ AND PUSH MY HEAD UNDERWATER
ME: FULLY CLOTHED AND IMMERSED IN WATER, BRIEFLY ( not including all my hair, which is clean and nice )
If you know of a dock or even something more adventurous where you would like to do the immersion I’m allll ears.
The reason I’m offering so much money is that I can’t find any messianic people to help me out here.
Again, all you have to do is dunk my noggin and briefly read something that I wrote on the back of a zig zag papers pack. I am 100% serious.
Entrepreneurship is about seeing opportunity. For some, they might see an individual, who is a little on the weird side; as an entrepreneur, I see an easy way to earn $65. Go out and seek those opportunities today.
The team at Lucha Comics has a strong history in working with entrepreneurs. With stories ranging from horror to history, why not a story about a group of everyday entrepreneurs working hard to get by? It was so obvious that at first we weren’t sure where to begin. Now that we have our core group of characters ready to go, what do you think? Imagine Friends meets the daily struggle of the entrepreneur, and you have Entrepreneur: The Comic Book. We hope to have our first issue out soon, and of course you’ll get to see it here first, on the social entrepreneur.
