Default School Project, ALL EYES HERE!

Alright, so a student needs my help, & YOUR help to finish a school project.

Basically for her class, she has to present a business idea & she chose my company to use for demonstration.

I am scanning her homework now, & I will upload it a.s.a.p!

Being the person I am, if anything is school related, my eyes close & ears shut... So understanding this project has not happened YET, but maybe you guys can figure it out!

I'll upload the project soon, thanks gophers!

I really do not like the teacher who created this assignment, it is VERY limited. It's as if she expects students to only be shop keepers, not service providers you know?


To bad she didn't think of those, "Take-a-Card" holders that stick onto your truck like our very own gopher member

Ok, I need to know how old this student is so I can have a better idea how complex to make your answers. I don't think we need to have a junior high kid handing in a college paper..haha!

She will be graduating high school this year, whatever the hell grade that is.

I know nothing really, the only thing I remember from school is flirting & dicking around with the dream of being a mailman.

I think in America they call this "Middleschool" ???

Grade 7 to 11 of high/middle-school, then college & university... whatever, lol.

I got my PHD in lawnsurrrvass.


I was thinking of a trimmer with a swindle blower attachment the width of a garden hose. It adjusts accordingly to aim the grass back into the lawn.... Other than that, I'm clueless/lazy... Need assistance!

I actually haven't really read through the paper yet, I better do that now.

You know, you could go with the idea of creating the Breeze Robo-Mower as a product.

Then she could have you come into class dressed as a robotic mower with your logo on the front and then take a picture of it for the local newspaper.

It certainly would be memorable.

How much would it cost to make the robot? How much profit and of course it would have to be sold through Walmart

I bet the kids would love it LOL
