... and I got nuthin'....
Might try selling spaghetti trees.....
Maybe you could train monkeys to harvest coconuts
Some good ideas. My book, "Play Weddings For the Art; Make Money in Jazz" hasn't panned out.
My next book will be, after this afternoon's experience... "Yes, Virginia, 170 degree Whey IS Too hot For Bare Hands, But the Mozz Ain't Gonna Stretch Itself, And You Were Too Lazy and Tough to Go Buy Gloves."
"You CAN Make a $5.99/lb Mozzarella In Two Hours with Only $20 Worth of Ingredients and Scalded Hands!"
I guess a cash cow depends on the approach. For instance my cow poops all over the yard and it cost me a bunch to have it removed.
My neighbor's cow craps all over his yard and he sells is as fertilizer ...
A monkey and a street organ?
A cash cow is definitely the best kind of cow to milk...
"I keep a close watch on this cow of mine
I keep my stalls wide open all the time
I keep my eyes out for the teat that binds
Because she's mine, I milk the line"....
Buy 10 cows and 1 bull and put them out to pasture.
Next year you will have 20
Sell those cows for cash and you have $200,000
Most of us know how to make money
What we dont know is how to spend it (or not spend it)
The moment we get money we get rid of it
That is why we have no money.
At the start of the year, buy 50 gilts and 50 ram lambs. At the end of the year you’ll have a hundred sows and bucks!
Just follow my rule of financial non-success — by the time word of an opportunity gets to people like you and me, it's probably not an opportunity any more.
But seriously, my rules are
The money you save by trimming down your purchases is tax free.
The fees you don't pay are tax free
No human is smart enough to predict the stock market (and even if someone were, it wouldn't be me), so buy SPDRs tracking the major stock indices, and look for the lowest fees (see #2).
Best cash cow I have seen to date based on ROI and initial capitol investment according to a lot of operators is RV storage lot. Get a plot of land, slap down some gravel and a fence and charge a ridiculous amount per square foot for spaces.
I don't know about cows but here's a great strategy for making "chicken" money:
Awesome. The last one should be derivatives trading or hedge-fund management rather than venture capital, but that didn't stop me from laughing.
A VC would pressure the cows to sign a term sheet where they could trigger a clause in 2 years ensuring that the VCs got all the milk and the cows had to pay them back for the hay they ate.
Can you get the milk for free? If so, why buy the cow?
I thought it was money for nothin and the chicks for free?
Cows are pretty amazing. They get huge eating grass and can sell for thousands of dollars.
Only if you play your git-tar on the MTV ....
Them guys ain't dumb...
Have you ever considered cash chickens?
I met a researcher in Georgia who was trying to make transgenic chickens, which is far harder than doing so for a mammal. He was trying to make eggs into bioreactors, replacing the albumen with pharmacologically useful proteins. The story I heard is he was looking at an egg processing facility and started seeing dollars just rolling down the conveyers.
Maybe try something aviation related? I hear you can make a small fortune in aviation...
....provided you start with a large fortune, right?
Maybe I should leaseback my plane? That will make me rich, right? right guys??
How about this?
Somebody lock this thread. Because it ain't gonna get better than that!! Steingar wins this thread!
Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered (old investor saying).
I once talked to an elderly & wealthy retired Jewish gentleman and we ended up talking about business and profit.
So I asked him what he had done for a living. He said ... I buy a pig , add $1 to my cost and sell it.
My reply was that no way could that work.
He said if you do it a million times you have a million dollars.
Turns out he had a good reputation with farmers , when they had a barn full of animals they would phone him and make a deal ... then he phoned a meat processor and offered them for sale with the $1 markup added. The processor would then send a truck and pick them up.
Processors loved it because the price was good and they would not have to go to auctions to buy them
Farmers loved it because they sold everything in one day and got cash ... saved them hauling to auctions and waiting for payment to come.
The Jewish man didn't have to handle the pigs , the farmer didn't have to handle the pigs , the processor didn't have to handle the pigs .... the truck driver did it all and was happy to get the freight dollars.
hehe .... whenever I meet a vegetarian I tell them .... I am a vegetarian too!!!!
My method is to take natural organic green grass and green corn stalks , process it through a cow ... and then eat the roasts and steaks and ribs
Cut the grass on your grass air strip , feed it to elephants and buy avgas and go flying.
We called him "Farmer Jim" ..... He passed away a few years ago but his ranch specialized in fussy select greenfeed which he sold to the big city zoos. He made a comfortable living and flew fixed wing and gyrocopters from his home strip.
Nothing wrong with that -- grazing animals are a good way to convert the sun's energy that falls on non-arable grassland into food that humans consume. In many parts of the world, like the Sahel in Africa, there's neither the soil nor rainfall to grow enough crops to feed the population, so herding grazing animals is the only way to do it (though it's getting harder and harder there as the earth warms up).
I'm a vegetarian, not because I object to other people eating meat, but because I'm not interested in eating meat myself. I'm even less interested eating fake meat like "Beyond"; if I don't want meat, why would I want to eat something manufactured to taste and smell like meat? If you really want something that tastes like a burger, just eat the damned burger; it's probably healthier than the fake stuff.
Was that the same guy that tried to bio-engineer boneless, skinless chickens in order to skip a lot of processing. I believe he failed because he couldn't get the roosters and chickens to mate.
My ex was a vegetarian, not because she loved animals, but because she really hated plants.
Can't say, can't recall the guy's name. This was quite a few years ago. He was quite a character though.
Yeah, that's where I stole the idea. Thanks for looking it up.
