I think it’s time I get serious about starting my own business.
Like my own product line. Yeah. I need to start my own business featuring a line of products to address problems I face on a daily basis. I assume that since my problems are universal in nature, they’ll apply to everyone and I will instantly make money based on the fact that by making products to solve my life’s problems, I am also by extension, making products to address everyone’s problems. And even if no one is interested in my super awesome life solutions line, it doesn’t matter. Because I will have solved the most nagging problems I face every day. It’s a win-win with the happiness factor.
Things like excessive underarm sweat. I’ve blogged about it before and I’ll blog about it again. I shouldn’t need Botox injections or the removal of my sweat glands to help me get a grip on sweat and finally enjoy summer.
Then again, as long as bathing suits exist I probably won’t ever enjoy summer.
I also have a slew of other problems that today’s product development is failing to properly address. Like underwear that don’t look like granny panties that are also comfortable. What’s so hard about that? Or a nude bra that doesn’t look absolutely and terribly boring and sad. Or a pillow that doesn’t lose its super awesome fluff support after a few weeks of drool accumulation.
What’s so hard about this?
The key to true happiness and complete satisfaction in life isn’t some hidden secret you only unveil when you’re 60 and wish you could relive life again. True happiness is having things like garbage bags that stay around the trash can instead of falling into it with the goopy leftovers from last night. It’s things like self-cleaning cat litter boxes that save you from having to clean up after your own cat’s feces. It’s pot holders that double as oven mitts and pens that glide on paper but don’t bleed
Perhaps this is a sign of my (ever-increasing) age: the simpler pleasures in life. ♣
