My business plan.

27 posts in this topic

Hello TT people,

Have you noticed how there must be a space wormhole right here in TT land and the world.

You see for years I am losing one of my socks at a time, sometimes the left one, sometimes the right.

As I'm a fashion slave, I have to then buy a pair of socks to match them with the missing sock.

Then I have a problem as I have a spare sock, I had a spare sock before I bought two more.

So should I;

A/ Stop worrying about wormholes in space?

B/ Stop worrying about have hosiery that matches.

C/ Stop wearing socks completely. (Is this allowed in public)

D/ Start a one sock business.

The plan is I buy lots of socks in twos, maybe you TT people can tell me where I can buy them in bulk.

Then, (here is the cunning part) I sell them one at a time to people like me.

I'm really surprised that people on her with high IQ haven't thought of my business plan.

Any constructive input and investment offers would be good.  pp SL.

I think you have forgotten some important points;

 

1)   What type of coffee will you serve to your employees?

2)   Socks are fine, but they are dependent upon 

    a)  Colour of trousers/Skirt/dress

    b )  Type/colour of shoes

    c)  Mood of wife/husband on the 5th day after the 13th new moon of the year.

    d)  size of wormhole

 

3)   What does your lawyer say?  I do hope you have law insurance!

4)   How are you going to compete against the Chinese who can do it quicker, cheaper, and sell socks embedded into shoes which is far superior to your offering!

 

 

I am sure that there are more, but I am not a lawyer so can't help you any further and any/all advise I have already given might be anything from 1% - 100% incorrect (or maybe that should be 100% - 1% correct?)

 

BTW:  Of course it is allowed to stop wearing socks in public.  As long as you don't leave the house.

Just wear a pantyhose with oversized slippers.   Problem solved.

 

P,S,, most forgot, short jeans could be a good idea too.

The basis of all British and American business plans is to

 

Take the money and run.

 

Keep that in mind and you will go far.

Terrible idea.  If you lose one, then you can't match them. Are you a businessman and qualified to give advice.  (They do look good though. IMO )

The business is based in Germany, of course you need socks with sandals.

Good point well made, but I'm based in the UK.  So now I have to consider going global. This is getting very complicated.

Don't forget to register with the ISHK (Industrie & Socken Handels Kammer)

 

Plus you need to guarantee having a stand at every Weihnachtsmarkt, flohmarkt and every Sonntags offene verkauf in Bayern.

This is an eyeopener, indeed! I was taught to put my best foot forward but  so many times I simply couldn't  because the sock for it was missing.

 

I think you should indeed proceed globally. There are clearly many people like us out there. Perhaps a " Whatsox"   lend/trade online platform could be part of the business model.

 

May the socks be with you.

True, but you also can't get a nice German Cameltoe going...

Could I possibly start an "artisan" sock aimed at bearded millennial types. Would they need to be locally sourced and organic?

Indeed. Local is the tricky bit as then you also need local sheep, shearers and knitters. 

 

Some fake news along the line of 'Joop/Lagerfelt etc starting odd sock show in Milan' may help sales though.

Sod The Local, do you really think you'll get more sales by advertising your socks here on TT?

 

You need bio degadeable so they quickly decompose and you have to sell more.
