Take the first step to being a billionaire which the great mercantilists always become. Start in your garage workshop with a dozen friends. Maybe do fabulous GRAFFITI ART PAINTINGS as BASQUIAT did. Export unique American items to EUROPE! Start with a classroom (living room or church basement,) where you teach sewing or knitting or crocheting to the girls in your area. Folk dresses, jackets. If you can't teach, find a granny who can. Then study the market for that type of item. Don't go retail with a brick and mortar store if you have NOT. See: SHABBY CHIC a case study in terrible Product Ethos.
This is just one aspect of trading, merchanting, Product Ethos stability. This seminar covers several dozen. It's an index page that you will want to give to young folks, the jobless, stay at home mommas & grannies will be free but the work you create as a garage group will be wholesaled to department stores --- here and abroad -- for big money. Create a 'line' of merchandise. Start with a mini-line of hand crafted articles which you wholesale to local boutiques & galleries. As you get your start-up cash from investors, you create a catalogue, print promos, buy those air tickets & go GLOBAL!
How to make your Business a NON-PROFIT Trade-CHARITY and the 26,000 deaths of babies daily in the third world will STOP! Do the VULTURE SANDWICH. ORG
More on HOW TO Create a planet-wide Charity around your IMPORT/ EXPORT trade routes. The Good Karma is magical. The publicity you will get from local reporters will build you a press book. Then, you do your own Public Relations with whatever scraps of coverage you have to show. You can cold call TYCOONS for funding, hourly!
These tycoons know the value of giving start-up charities a small business loan or even putting them in touch with small business development agencies.
To get private funding socialize more. Have your friends and relatives give more holiday parties. You can write a PROSPECTUS in two hours flat! Xerox a few copies and you will get funded. Next, create an 'official' charity with your secretary of state in your capital city and give fundraisers. Hang with the Blue Bloods, a great thing for a gal to do! And what other business can you run where you can salary yourself and not pay taxes on profits if you use them for helping people? Raise funds for trips to third world market places at l0$ a ticket singles parties, salary yourself out of that too, because you are a tax exempt foundation. Travel the world, buy primitive art and sell it to boutiques in your hometown. Become "Primitive Limited" or Vasco de Gama Shops. Bazaar Folklorico. Hang photos of your Oprah schools in your retail stores.
