The Perfect Plan

Okay, so on the way to UBC today, I sat next to this beautiful girl, and all throughout the ride I was trying to figure out ways that would make me be able to talk to girls like her. And I believe I've found the perfect plan. All I need is a digital SLR camera, a website, and business cards. Genius!

No, I don't mean making a porno site, I'm talking about starting up my own calendar business! Yeah, 'cause then I'd be able to go to girls and say "Hello, I'm Justin Beaudry, and I think you're beautiful." Then I'd give her my card, and explain that I'm a photographer. (They don't need to know that I have no background in photography, heheh.) And, as a plus, most girls I find attractive wouldn't be of the calendar model sort, i.e. not tall blonde etc, so these girls would potentially be more flattered. Just think about it -- would you buy a Cute Girls of UBC calendar for $12? I know I'd be interested!

Besides, if I find these non-model-y girls beautiful, I'm sure many many others would as well. And since I'd make the only Cute Girls of UBC calendar, it'll sell like hotcakes! Not to mention making calendars is relatively cheap. Good business + pretty ladies, it's the perfect plan! Alls I need is the start-up capital required to buy the camera, purchase a business license, maintain the website, pay the models for the pics, etc...so, anyone else interested in joining me in this business proposition?

I mean, the great thing is, it doesn't have to be just UBC either! We could eventually go to other universities, colleges, and even just girls passing by on the street! Cute Girls of Vancouver, Cute Girls of Kwantlen, Cute Girls of [insert place here], it'd be awesome! And yes, if any of you girls out there would wanna join too, we could even have a Cute Boys calendar as well...

Now, I'm probably not the only one with this idea, but considering the nicheness of my "cute" models, I seriously think that this could work! So, as stated earlier, is anyone else interested in making this happen? We could each pitch in a few hundred bucks to buy the camera, one of you tech savvy guys could make the website, and we could all get business cards, then every week one of us would have the camera in our respective places of learning / working / hanging outs taking pictures of cute girls! Now, who wouldn't want to have an excuse to go up to pretty ladies, eh?

As per the operating costs, I'm thinking $50 per model for the shoot, and if we use their pics, we'd give say 2% of calendar profits. Sounds reasonable, no? Especially since these girls won't be used to modelling, eh? Plus there's the cost of printing the calendars, I'm guessing at least $5 each. Plus, we need to find places to sell these things. Plus, I'm sure there's tons and tons of unexpected costs just lining up to bite us in the business behind...

Honestly, I don't think we need much more than a few thousand dollars for this to start happening. In business terms, that's chump change. However, in starving student terms, that's a fortune...

I'd sure like for this to happen. Perhaps for a 2007 calendar. I mean, I always wanted to start up a small business, just for the experience. And talking to ladies is awesome. Cash is the main concern, I guess, but if I get like 5 guys on board willing to spend $500, or if I could get a wealthy investor, then it sure is possible...

So, yeah. Awesome business idea, all because I'm shy around the ladies. Heheh...

Until next time, I guess...

p.s. - I sure did waste my time with this post...nearly an hour getting my idea down, instead of studying for tomorrow's test...and considering the only real reason I typed all this out would be because I'm procrastinating, I sincerely doubt my own ability to be non-lazy with this business. But oh well, a guy can dream, a guy can dream...

if you're asking the not-so-gorgeous girls but the cute/pretty ones, then i'm sure they would be suspiscious and non willing. i mean, it does sound pretty sleezy if you just come up to someone and ask them to meet you at some photo shoot :P. especiall if you're not credible :S...
and one more thing. if you're selling the calendars and people are like, wtf these girls aren't pretty then you may potentially hurt a lot of people's feelings....

Yeah, sorry buddy, but that is kinda creepy. :P

All you need to do is talk to them. Plain and simple. You don't need some stupid pick up line.

Dude that's super creepy...no wait that's beyond creepy that there's nothing to describe that level of creepiness and also that makes you look super desperate.

if you want to tell a girl she's beautiful... just do it.
even if she rejects you, it will still most likely be the highlight of her day :)

Actually, I thought it was a pretty good idea. Perhaps in retrospect it may seem creepy, but a "cute girls of ubc" calendar? I'd be interested, that's for sure. They would have to be genuinely cute, ofcourse. And what's with this anonymous bullshit. If you want to make a claim like that, then post your name you dastardly fellow.
