Well keep thinking and running ideas through here. Ive done my share and received my "thats stupid" remarks. Keep on thinking and innovating.
Way back in the day in a Physics class I questioned my professor when I noticed I had gotten the wrong answer on a test. After a back in forth argument in class he says, "well, you are the only one who got that question wrong. Are you saying that everybody else and me are wrong? Obviously, you don't have the right answer."
Well, just pissed me right off. So, I got up and said, "You know, at one point in time a whole bunch of stupid people thought the earth was flat until one smart person stood up and told them it was round. Can I come up to the board and explain my answer to the class?" Obviously, calling the professor and the rest of the class stupid probably wasn’t the smoothest of moves but…
After I did this... guess who was right? The only idiot who got the question wrong. Moral of the story? Even if all of us say it's a stupid idea... It just may not be.
There are quite a few million/billion dollar businesses that I’m aware of and probably hundreds more that I have no clue about that operate under different facades catering to different cliental. It can and does work. You just have to do it right.
