Not everyone is cutout to work for someone else. If you are one of those people but are struggling with business ideas, perhaps these unusual entrepreneurs will inspire you.
- Golden tickets to heaven
A Florida couple sold hundreds of golden tickets to heaven for $99.99 per ticket – guaranteed to get you through the pearly gates. Unfortunately, they told buyers the tickets were made of solid gold when, in reality, they were a piece of wood painted gold – which got them arrested.
The couple stands by their claim that the tickets are gold. They say that Jesus gave them the tickets behind the KFC so they could earn enough money to go to outer space. Their alien friend, Stevie, promised to take them on his flying saucer to his planet which is made of crack cocaine. The couple believe Jesus set them up and it’s he who should be arrested.
- Time travel vacations
Zach Zeal, another Florida entrepreneur, is selling time travel vacations using his homemade time machine. He can take you wherever you want to go although he admits the system doesn’t always comply.
In order to obtain the $5,000 vacation, you must be willing to spend 24-36 hours in Mr. Zeal’s home. He places a small paper tab on your tongue (he claims is not acid) and then shoots a laser beam into your face. After which you may, or may not, be taken to your time of choice.
- Selling your soul to the devil
If you’ve ever thought about selling your soul to the devil to have a better life on earth, you should probably first read Rex Touth’s book How to Negotiate Unholy Contracts. He offers step by step instructions on how to summon the devil and then get the best deal possible. He also advises clients to demand the life-extension clause which guarantees 300 years of a youthful existence.
- Snuggles and hugs
If all this nonsense is too much, you can purchase snuggles and hugs. Jackie Samuel, from Rochester, New York believes in the magic of the human touch so she sells cuddles of 45, 60 or 90 minutes. The starting cost is around $50.
These are all certainly unique ideas. Feeling inspired?
May the farce be with you!
