a few days ago my farmer and i were driving and got into a heated discussion (as we often do) about what i thought was a brilliant business idea...and he disagreed. of course.
(i think my farmer thinks that unless you're buying more land...it's a bad idea.)
let's B A C K T R A C K a few weeks...
i was reading my very most favorite magazine, runner's world, and happened upon an article about an awesome running shoe store opening in colorado.
the basic idea behind it was to go running shoe shopping and then snag yourself a beer during the process.
i, for one, would shop there exclusively. shopping + beer? count me in!
don't you love the idea even more now?
my farmer asked, "so then why wouldn't these people just go to a bar to get beer?" #shortsighted
i tried to explain the concept is all about connecting with people with similar interests. it makes total sense. chat about races. chat about training strategy. chat about running gear. chat about running loops - all with a pint in hand. i love the idea more and more the more i type about it.
so what do you think about the whole idea? i'm ready to start a business venture in boise. i think it's the perfect community for a business like this. i'm just one clever name away from filing the paperwork and looking for downtown real estate.
