Ever since I was a kid I thought about business ideas. I thought my friend Steve and I could run a lawn mowing service. I hated mowing lawns and we never did it. But I would think of all sorts of ways we could make business cards and run our business.
Another thing I was fascinated with as a kid was miniature golf. I always wanted to have a miniature golf course. But not the kind that you see around a lot of places now. Just plain holes. I want the fun kind with obstacles and all that. I would draw pictures of miniature golf courses. I would come up with all sorts of crazy ideas for them. I even one time built my own miniature golf course hole in my backyard.
It never really came to fruition.
It was a haphazard project. I had a piece of plywood that I drilled a hole into. Along the edge of the plywood I naiked some scrap two by fours. I didn’t have the artificial turf I wanted to lay over it. It was hot working outside. I got a couple of splinters. So I gave it up.
These aren’t exactly set up a stand sort of business ideas. A kid could have a stand to draw attention and then explain the services. Many of these ideas are service oriented and might be sell-able through door to door offerings. That was my lawn mowing plan.
