i doubt anyone would want to put in that kind of info on a public forum! recession or no recession - business plans are generally not discussed in public

I doubt anybody will be willing to discuss business ideas on a public forum. You will have to try hard come up with something on your own. Good luck with that.

Here is one.
Print ready made pink slips.
Since they seem to be in quite high usage these days.
Maybe using recycled paper.

What happens if someone selects the idea and starts a thriving business?
Or suffers a loss?

OK. I think it is a great idea. But let's keep it a secret between us.

You go first, lol.

AWWWWWWW cmon guy's. You dont have to be so harsh. Was just trying to see how innovative our forum is/can get. He He, guess I have to stick to the age old recipe of sticking to one's 'Jaddi Pushti' business then .
@Iceman You started it all. Now you will have to read all ideas posted by these hillarious bunch of good for nothing/car crazy people

There are some forums where such discussion takes place. And the reason is obvious.
Ideas don't work. People do.
