Business Venture

I had an idea to go door to door, selling "No Soliciting" signs. What do think? Would you buy one? Price point suggestions?



Yeah, I think irony is the biggest selling point, so it would only work door to door.

Think about it, you're relaxing at home when the door bell rings. You're not expecting anyone, so you're annoyed, then angry, then afraid (could be a rapist), then annoyed again, and you open the door and see a solicitor. But this solicitor goes, "You want I should be the last solicitor you ever see?" (she's an old oriental lady).


The better question is who WOULDN'T buy one? I'm serious about this. I'm really gonna do it.

Great idea! I'd buy one. I'd go into partnership with you.

I don't know what kind of profit margin you'd be lookin for.........


And you could always put on the bottom of the sign in small type:

"btw no jay dubs either kbye"

I don't know why that song just popped into my head.

$7.99 and they would sell like hotcakes. I have a small one on the window next to my front door that says "No Soliciting: Except Girlscouts" cuz I gotta have my yearly Samoa fix or else really bad things happen.

I like the girl scout stipulation, but I don't know if I could add "...and NO Proselyting either" cuz it would keep the JWs away, but the Mormons would be screwed in the process. Maybe "No Prostitutes" would be a good one for Downtown LV.

I would pay a thousand dollars for a no soliciting sign from a solicitor. At least a thousand, probably $1800.00.

So, I didn't serve a mission so I don't know how it is but I once couldn't tell the jaydubs NO (we were newly married and living in Provo) so I set up an appointment to have them come back. When that alloted time rolled around I proceeded to draw the blinds, turn off all the lights and hide. My husband said I was beyond rude. Then he gave me some lame lecture about how on his mission he'd much rather people just say no rather than waste his time by having them come back for nothing. At least I think that is what the lecture was... I tuned out about 1/2 way through.

ps. I love this Travis song.

Let us know how hard it is to find that nice older oriental woman to do your selling for you.

Sam says she could also sell guns so that they could shoot anyone who came to the door. But, they might decide to use it too soon.

Probably not a good idea.
