Note: I try to keep these Ideas short and Sweet. 🙂
So every year around the Holidays I usually find the time to go back to the old neighborhood, where I grew up, and drive around town and look at the Christmas lights and just kind of reminisce for a while.
It’s funny how when I go back I also notice the changes – a new building, or a new store, or a new house, etc.
What also comes rushing in is the flood of memories from childhood experiences.
I drive in a big loop, past the old house, past the church where the grassy front lawn we once played football on is now a parking lot, past the old high school – which always seems to get bigger(?), past the beach where I learned to swim, and so on.
You get the idea. These memories are priceless.
I started to wonder about the folks who may have moved away from areas they grew up in and these folks might never get a chance to go back to the old “hood.”
So the idea:
Start a Video Service that films what are essentially ‘drive thrus’ of neighborhoods. Folks hire YOU to film their old neighborhods. Maybe once in the Fall and then again in Spring; however you want to set it up.
You pick out a name… something like – oh I don’t know “You CAN go Home Again” set up a simple website, do some Online advertising, maybe send out a few postcards to folks who might be interested, talk it up on Facebook, post an example video on YouTube…
Ya know get a buzz going about your video service and off you go.
Folks think it’s a great idea. And, before you know it you have many orders coming in, and then you decide to expand into other areas, and THEN you have a real BRAINSTORM and you think WOW maybe I can franchise this and license the name to other states and really make some money!
That’s the scoop.
Take it and run with it if you want. You’re welcome.
