Sami Bayrakci was looking for a gift online for a friend when he came up empty. He thought, wouldn’t it be great if someone picked a fun, interesting gift for someone and for the added surprise they wouldn’t be told what it was. It would be a total surprise. This is how he came up with The Something Store idea.
Nine years later they have delivered thousands of “somethings” all over the world. The great thing is they do it for $10 which includes shipping. Who would have thought that a mystery grab-bag type business would work out?
Bayrakci says, “You should take a chance on your wacky idea! What do you have to lose?”
We’ve all heard that, “Most businesses fail within the first five years.” But you know what? You’ll never know if you don’t try. All of the businesses I’m profiling at the moment are a bit wacky, but they all work and they all make more money than I do sitting in a cubicle for 40 hours a week. Most of these business have one thing in common, they started small, then they grew and now others see the coolness that they saw all those years ago.
Start now moving toward your goal now and eventually you be where you want to be. Or you can stand around and do nothing and most likely still be where you are right now.
