I LOVE taking long showers, and not just sort of long. I'm talking drain the hot water tank kind of long. I always have. My dad used to get majorly bent out of shape with me as a kid and especially as a teenager. I guess he's not a fan of cold showers.
I don't sing in the shower like some people. I practice speeches that I may give as president someday and I practice television interviews. I have fabulously conditioned hair and I do my best thinking in the shower.
Yesterday, I was looking at my shower gel, reading the list of ingredients and I thought about the ridiculous amount of money companies like Burt's Bees and Bath & Body Works make by selling smelly froo froo bath goo. I reminded myself to look up the ingredients on google and figure out how I could make a million bucks whipping up something in my kitchen. I was thinking about what I could do differently, how could I find my own special niche to make my product stand out from all the others?
THEN IT HIT ME!
I will make an androgynous smelling froo froo bath goo that can be used by men or women and name it BI-PRODUCT! I will market it to the Lesbian/Gay/Transgendered/Transsexual Community and supporters! I'm going to shoot for product placement on RuPaul's Drag Race and Glee.
I will also market it to the ANTI All-Natural/Organic community. (You know, the people that shop at Walmart for juice boxes with High Fructose Corn Syrup, paper plates & don't bring their own reusable grocery bags) For them, I will design special packaging that looks like hazardous waste barrels.
So much potential, I'm going to have to write a business plan and everything. Someone should really invent waterproof whiteboard things with suction cups for the shower. That way when a brilliant idea strikes, I could write it down without it washing away. Oh, another good one! I may be on infomercials sooner rather than later.
**DISCLAIMER** Steal my ideas and I will stab you with something rusty!
