Get rich while I’m gone k.richani-ddy.gif

I will try to “steal” a family member’s laptop when they least suspect it to make the ole rounds!hearts.gif

Out of freeeeeeezin New York City……….Sunny (hopefully) Florida….here we come!

Mickey? Great name for a cartoon mouse. But did Walt Disney know that he would make millions of dollars from a cartoon mouse? Did he know it was an important decision at the time? I don’t think so. It wasn’t a foolproof scheme to get rich quick, just a decision that worked”.

13 lucky management decisions

In 1850 Julius Reuter used carrier pigeons to communicate share prices between the end of the Begian telegraph line in Brussels to the end of German line in Aachen. It was the beginning of a news and information business.

After Warner Brothers produced the first talkie in 1927, others joined the fray. But studios weren’t sound-proofed, so filming took time. RKO number two, Sam Jaffee, suggested RKO should film at night when it was quiet. It did so and stole a march on its rivals.

In 1961 Jean Nidetech was put on a diet by the Obesity Clinic in the New York Department of Health. She invited six dieting friends to meet in her Queens apartment every week. Her invitation created Weight Watchers and the slimming industry.

In 1977 Ben and Jerry decided to do a $5 correspondence course in ice cream making. They now make a lot more ice cream than they ever thought possible.

In 1979 a Hewlett Packard engineer found that by heating metal in a specific way, it splattered all over. The decision to exploit this launched the ink jet printer business – 10 years later, this decision became the basis for over $6 billion in HP revenues.

In 1989 Coca-Cola was involved in one of the great corporate debacles: the new-recipe Coke. This was truly ill-advised. The good decision was to quickly go back to the older recipe. Many would have been tempted to stick with the decision and weather the storm. Sometimes the best way forward is to retreat.

A computer programmer, Pierre Omidyar, starts AuctionWeb in 1995 to see if the Internet could be used for electronic selling via bidding. eBay is soon born.

How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.

In my experience, it is rarer to find a really happy person in a circle of millionaires than among vagabonds.

Are these decisions simply extremely lucky or more shrewdly calculated?
Did they just happen at a precise time?

Luck, timing, talent, genius..or all the above?

    Dammit, i saw the first pic and thought the secret to riches was a fast car and i was about to start looking.

    You know what folks, i think the easiest way is to write a book about how to get rich, there are lots of suckers out there willing to cough up.

    In fact, you know those Nigerian email scams, i’m telling you, folks in Australia are conned out of millions every year by them, also all around the world. They’ve been going for years and everyone should know about them, but there is always a moron somewhere just dying to improve the self-esteem of some scumbag.

    i still remember back when i first started using PCs, i got one of those emails, i hadn’t heard of them and i ain’t no brainiac, but even i knew, nobody’s going to give me a million bucks to just “hold onto” for a while.

    You are a wealth of information, girlfriend. I hope you have a wonderful time. Florida should be moderately warm right now, with scattered showers every afternoon that lasts about ten minutes. But of course, Global Warming may have changed all of that since I lived there. LOL! Enjoy! :)
