One 24 year old man from North Texas is making $10,000 a month with his business, Potato Parcel.
The genius (and take that however you want) decided to send potatoes through the mail, with messages on them.
Said potatoes can have any custom message on them and are sent to whoever the buyer wishes – anonymously, and despite his girlfriend calling it the ‘dumbest idea ever’, it’s taken off tenfold.
Alex Craig claimed:
On our second day that we were live, and we started promoting it on Reddit, and we got $2,000 in orders, and I just knew this was it.
I would say the two things that hold everyone back in life is fear and doubt.Advertisement
The fear of failure and the fear of wasting your time, and the doubt that you can actually achieve something big on a huge scale.
Kudos to him for making so much cash given the potatoes and message cost between $8 and $10 each for buyers, but let’s be honest.
Take a look at the quality of the messages, and save yourself some cash, get a pen and a stamp and write on a potato yourself.
