Pondering acquisitions, proformas, and projections for business opportunities you always have to remember that if things seem to good to be true, it probably is….. just consider this little investment proposal below with a smile…….However I do like the synergistic thought pattern. 🙂
I know you are always interested in looking for opportunities for investment. I don’t know if you would be interested in this but I thought I would mention it to you because it could be a real “sleeper” in making a lot of money with very little investment.
A group of us are considering investing in a large cat ranch near Hermosillo, Mexico. It is our purpose to start rather small with about one million cats. Each cat averages about twelve kittens each year; skins can be sold for about 20 cents for the white ones and up to 40 cents for the black. This will give us 12 million cat skins per year to sell at an average price of around 32 cents, making our revenues about $3 million a year. This really averages out to $10,000 a day, excluding Sundays and holidays.
A good Mexican cat man can skin about 50 cats per day at a wage of $3.15 a day. It will only take 663 men to operate the ranch so the net profit would be over $8,200 a day.
Now, the cats would be fed on rats exclusively. Rats multiply four times as fast as cats. We would start a rat ranch adjacent to our cat farm. If we start with a million rats we will have four rats per cat each day. The rates will be fed on the carcasses of the cats that we skin. This will give each rat a quarter of a cat. You can see by this that this business is a clean operation, self-supporting and really automatic throughout. The cats will eat the rats and the rats will eat the cats and we will get the skins.
Let me know if you are interested; as you can imagine, I am rather particular who I want to get into this, and want the fewest investors possible.
Eventually, it is my hope to cross the cats with snakes, for they will skin themselves twice a year. This will save the labor costs of skinning as well as give me two skins for one cat. May I hear from you at your earliest opportunity with a certified check to my order.
Well, you think about that for about 2 minutes and consider some of the dumb things we all do during our lives and smile that we all make mistakes. Enjoy the weekend.
By the way if you are still interested you can send your tax deductible check to D.C Miskin, attention to the “To Good to be True foundation.”
I certainly enjoy the relationship with all of you and start preparing for a great December and the BIG 2015 coming at us all.
