start-up

Post by worth » Tue Jul 27, 2010 10:17 am

Thinking about starting a small clothing line centered around market terminology I.e.:

shorts -"asset allocation" (rear-end)
tshirts - "standard deviation, small cup, mid-cup, large-cup, emerging markets, derivatives"


etc.

What do you think?

Funny but how many people who know what "asset allocation" means would wear shorts with "asset allocation" written on their butt?

I always thought it would be funny to make custom basketball jerseys with CEO and well known CFO's.

Have their companies logo on the front. Could be comical. Too many trademark issues to make it viable, but fun to think about.

Sounds like a losing proposition.

Sounds ridiculous but crazier things have happened. Juicy Couture was selling those shorts that said "Juicy" on the butt. People bought them. I use "people" generously, however.

Keep in mind that the odds of succeeding in a small business start-up are probably worse than the odds in Vegas casinos.

Oh well...

At least I didn't aproach the idea as "too big to fail"
