Business is not only associated with success and money and deals and stuff. We know lots of interesting and sound examples of huge awesome companies with a successful destiny and the enormous income. But sometimes, this or that company becomes famous not because of it’s good business strategies, but because of the worst failures ever.
For example, advertising business. Seems to be stable and acute. Not at all. Once, the General Motors company, advertising the new offroadster made it possible for the visitors of the official site to edit the advertising videos and mottoes. Then, these vids and slogans have been accidentally included into the official advertising campaign and all the customers could see the slogans like: “New GM Jeep: yesterday’s technologies today” and “The world will become better without this car”.

Every parent wants all the best for his child be it some new toy or happiness and comfort in life. The idea that they will part with their precious kids when they will go to school scares some of parents to death. What will they eat, what if they fall down, what if the relations with classmates are not so good, and what if someone upsets their child? Sometimes this fear becomes unbearable and the parents decide that the home schooling is the best option.
Home schooling became popular when in 1997 13-year-old Rebecca Sealfon won one of the most prestigious contests – National Spelling Bee. It showed to lots of people that home education may lead to some significant results and the tendency began to gain speed. The statistics says that home-schooled kids are usually very talented in all academic fields. It is no wonder as the whole attention of the teacher is always devoted entirely to them and an individual teaching program which matches their peculiarities best, is used.

In the basis of every type of business you want to launch should be some interesting and, what’s more important, original idea. You should occupy your own niche on the market with the help of new product or new way of manufacturing. Some ideas may seem odd and even crazy from the first sight, but you would be surprised to know how successful they have become. So, do not be afraid to use the power of your imagination and ignore people who say your idea for business is too strange to bring benefit. Get inspired by the list of businessmen who became well-known due to their belief in their dream.
- The Snuggie, or the other name of this invention, slanket. Probably you have already understood the purpose of this thing – it is a sleeved blanket which warms you up and do not restrict your ability to use your hands as they protrude from this odd stuff. Of course, you may say that there is no use in snuggies as you have sweaters and robes, but sometimes things do not need to be practical, it is enough if they are funny. For a year since 2008 till 2009 twenty million Americans became happy owners of snuggies. Each snuggie costs between 10 to 20 dollars, so you may imagine how much money the inventor of this thing has already earned. Besides, the contracts are made with airplanes for providing them with snuggies as the passengers find these odd blankets to be extremely convenient. Do you still think that this idea is stupid?

According to the data provided by NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter about 22 per cent of the surface of moon crater called Shackleton situated in the South pole area is formed by ice.
Despite that fact this crater is 3 billion years old it is certainly well preserved. There are several minor craters in its bottom that most likely appeared as a result of the collision which created Shackleton itself.

A beautiful state California gave the world a lot of necessary things, including skateboarding.
Skateboarding was invented in the beginning of the 50ties, when the American surfers decided not to waste time during calm weather, but ride on the boards outside the ocean. They stuck suspension and wheels from the roller skates to a usual flat board and started passing around the streets- that was the first skate in the world named “Roller Derby”. The main aim for skaters that time was to stay on board and go round the obstacles. Teenagers mostly used the first analogues of a skate as scooters, but anyway a skate was on its way of becoming popular. Soon the first commercial team “Super Surfer Skateboard Team” and some time later the first magazine which was called “Skateboarder” appeared.
