We all know that every air plane in the air has a few people with cotton in their ear. They do this to avoid the air pressure getting to them. Read more about it here
Now, I have a related question…I have heard that in New York, there are buildings with more than 100 floors. Does this mean, that people working on the 100th floor place cotton in their ear before getting into the lift?
If the answer is yes, I have an awesome business model in mind. Why not tie up with all major builders in the US of A, and offer to set up stalls right next to the lifts and sell cotton buds?
The costs can be real low, if the manufacturing of cotton buds is done in India and the items exported. Every pair of cotton bud will cost us only 25 paise (and if we have to emboss ‘Made in US of A` on it, ten paise extra) and even if we sell it for a paltry sum of 10 cents a pair…we will make: 4 Rupees per pair.
Did I just hear you say exporting costs? Well, I don`t mind even if it is as high as Rs 2 per pair…because I still make Rs 2 per pair as pure profit.
Now, let is arrive at how many such cotton buds we can sell.
Like all good business planners, I worked out the monies in an excel sheet. Find the details below. Note: The money involved is big.
Now, that`s a wholesome profit for as small an activity as making cotton buds. Mind you, thats a SINGLE’s DAY’s PROFIT!
