I am interested in starting shoe manufacturing or anything else that we physically produce something of material value, any takers?
Open offer to anybody who has money and wants to invest. I am willing to apply my expertise on business if somebody will put up the money to start a shoe manufacturing or any other type of business here in Los Angeles County. The reason I am picking on shoes as a business is because my friend Debbie and I had a conversation where several things became apparent:
1. Shoes that are made inexpensively these days break down in 6 months to a year instead of lasting 3 – 5 years (if cared for).
2. Some of the dyes that are in shoes (as other garments) when manufactured overseas have come back and caused allergic reactions with people. This is true with clothing and food in general these days. One only has to read the news to see reports of products being defective or toxic. People are starting to cut back on goods made in China or places they perceive that the worksmanship is poor at best or deadly in the worse case scenarios.
3. People in America should start buying American made products where they can and American politicans and business people should do what they can to stop outsourcing.
This is no different than what the American unions have been saying for years but the difference this time is we need to get a grassroots movement going because we have become too dependent on other nations for our goods and lately, our services.
Right now, resources are getting scarce and with the international community enjoying the benefits of capitalism, there is a strong incentive to make a profit by cutting corners. To me that equates to shoddy workmanship. Taking something simple as a shoe – it would be a great way to start a grassroots movement to get people to buy and start manufacturing American again.
We need our state and local governments to start introducing business incentives to make it worthwhile to hire local people at a living wage so they can start manufacturing. I am willing to step up to the plate to help get a shoe manufacturing business going here in Los Angeles.
Think about it. People spend a lot of time on their feet and how many times have you noticed when you buy cheap shoes that they behave exactly like what they are – cheap shoes. The material falls apart, glue dissolves and your nice covered shoe looks like it is in a torn sandal.
If somebody is willing to bring cash to the table, I will work with them getting a shoe business going. People realize at a certain point that you really get what you pay for. If you are paying pennies for a pair of shoes, you get a pair of shoes that was made less than pennies. How well do you think something like that will last?
The flip side is that you shouldn’t have to spend $120 for a pair of tennis shoes or designer sneakers and have them fall apart in under a year. Back in the prehistoric days, you bought a pair of shoes (once your feet stopped growing) and they were expected to last a couple of years.
Like a car.
Like a washing machine.
I am open to advising on other types of business as well. If there is any other type of business that somebody with money wants to approach me with, if you are looking to make it in America, I am available for consulting.
There are people here who are good workers, can make quality products at a reasonable wage, and you can make a profitable return on your investment.
A win-win situation for these economic times!
