my sister and I are always looking for a way to escape the corporate grind… so to speak. We would love nothing more than creating a cash cow and being able to sit back and take a break from the M-F 9-5 world.
At some point last year she emailed me this article about how Amish businesses don’t fail, it sparked this email trail:
her: “Business idea — be Amish.”
Me: “Being Amish makes me beileve my hair will alwayd be dirty and I’ll be itchy all the time…”
her: “They’re not hippies — they do bathe. But maybe a line of natural Amish soaps? BTW — my new neighbor owns a cheese-making business.”
Me: “I know they bathe but how good is homemade soap for your hair? These are things I worry about…
Maybe we could make a good natural soap for your hair – with a beer base (beer is really good for your hair) people are into natual/organic beauty products…”
her: “Maybe a whole line of natural beer products — beer to drink, beer for bathing, etc. We can even start growing our own organic hops.”
Me: “This seems like a lot of work, lets just go drink some beer…”
I guess this also serves as a great example of why we have never been successful at starting our own business.
