In times of financial malaise, Matthew Osborn had two full-time jobs worth only 6 dollars per hour each, and a wife and a son whose basic necessities he needed to fulfill. People often say that creativity is often unleashed in situation in which someone is very likely to be in their own tethers, and it seems that Osborn served as the perfect epitome. Having been inspired by the abundant poop throughout his surroundings, he instead had devised an unusual business idea to turn poop into bucks, while others instead had considered poop as simply poop: poop-cleaning service. Originally thought to be out-of-the-box, this idea had in the long run made Osborn a multi-millionaire 20 years later, and provided jobs to over 700 people.
Osborn’s idea might be deemed insane by many, but doesn’t entrepreneurship teach us to be courageous enough when it comes to implementing ideas that are eccentric, and beyond everyone’s imagination? This is what that remains lackadaisical in majority of us when times are difficult to seek permanent jobs. Everybody needs to be their own Osborn. And, most importantly, the fearlessness in unleashing your true creativity.
Note: there’s one business idea you perhaps should not practise – providing online affair service for married people.
