A new 'business brainstorming bible' - 227 Unusual Business Ideas - is a collection of 227 "different", but true and successful, business ideas in an easy-to-read format.
The book features an article about Las Vegas entrepreneur Dave Herber, who started off brokering special edition casino chips, and now sells custom-made home poker sets to wealthy gamblers all over the world. He's actually making money out of casino chips, and yet he never, ever gambles.
As well as the world's wackiest business ideas, co-authors Ross Stokes and Kathy Crockett have included a Business Brainstorming Guide as part of their "entrepreneur's manual" - a practical "hands-on" resource that shows readers exactly how to use this collection of other people's ideas to come up with their own brilliant moneymaker. They're promoting their ebook via a website http://www.227unusualbusinessideas.com .
"Whether you want to dream up a big new idea, or simply improve a business you already have, this entertaining but business-like book contains the inspiration and practical tips you need," says Stokes, a businessman with a history of unusual marketing tricks. (He once ran a chimney sweep business, and wore a top hat to every job in a bid to ensure customers remembered himÂ they did.)
