Ever heard of the Chillow?
How about the newest gift site Giftbag Boutique?
These were both ideas of mine YEARS ago. And I am annoyed to see that someone else had the same idea (and the cash) to make it a reality. A day late and a dollar short, as my Dad would say.
The Chillow (and goddamn I thought of that WORD too!) came to me about 10 years ago when I had the flu. My head was on fire, and I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could make a chilly pillow to rest my head on?
I had lots of inventions and business ideas in my head, but never had the ability to turn them into reality.
I opened my mailbox yesterday, and received a catalog for GiftBag Boutique… a lovely site were you can buy purses and have them FILLED with stuff as you choose.
Brilliant! Except I thought of that idea back in 1992 when my obsession with hangbags began. Turn them into giftbags, I thought!
Sensing a trend here.
I need to dig in my archive of ideas and act on one now before someone beats me to it!!!!
No, I can’t tell you what it is, because if I do, you’ll steal it.
Anyone have about $50k start up money and want to invest in a great idea???
