I always have crazy business ideas pop into my head. Not for me though, I run my own public speaking business, teach speech and drama and have a full-time job on radio and two beautiful kids. I can barely carry on the way I am going! No more time here! But they are these great ideas for other people with more time, money and better business sense than me.
Like the company that only shuttles around parents and their kids – like Uber, but with baby seats and DVD players with Thomas the Tank Engine on the back of the headrests.. I think I would call it Guber.
Or a business that only specialises in spectacles for kids – really awesome, super cool glasses, with your favourite superhero hanging on the arms. I think I would call it Classes.
Or there’s AllPackers. A company that not only packs and moves house for you, but also sends you on a holiday for two nights to an awesome location, and when you come home, everything is done.
Then there’s my community project, which is “Take an Oldie Out” or “Adopt an Oldie” or even “Wrap your arms round a Wrinkly One”.. still working on the title of that one! Basically it would make sure our grandmas and grandpas aren’t lonely and enjoy a hug, or a chat or a smile when they need it.
And finally, the Adult Sippy Cup – the Slup. A cup, that looks like a kids’ cup, colourful with a nice big straw etc. But it’s insulated and fits half a bottle of wine.
Reading back on this though – I’m not sure any of them have legs. I think I might just stick to helping people speak well. Although there might actually be something in the Slup…
