Hi, as of this moment I have 26 votes on my pitch. I am coming 428th in the voting hierachy. The leader, an embalming undertaker from Ireland has over 4,000 votes. This man plans to build a glamping business which includes accommodation in a BOEING 767 amongst other transport regalia. I voted for him because his pitch made me both smile and laugh.
We all have until midnight on Monday 23rd to get in the top 80 most voted for start-up business’. I have a way to go!
I am busy organising a week of publicity, starting on Monday 16th, ending Saturday 21st May.
Monday will be an 8 hour hitchike session from Clackets Lane Service station (Eastbound) on London’s M25 motorway. I will have a big sign with me asking for lifts in only Yellow Ferraris. (I’ve done this one before. See photo below).
I may wear a suit though this time.
Tuesday will be an 8 hour litter pick for discarded ‘plastic bottles only’ on Kimmeridge Bay beach and surroundings. Wednesday and Thursday will be 8 hour litter picks for the same but on Porlock Beach, Somerset. Friday will be an 8 hour pick on Chesil Beach.
Saturday will be back up to the M25 for another try for Yellow Ferraris. The last time I did this stunt, (90 hours in total) I got offered a lift in a Beige Maserati-but sadly declined the lift. Why? Well it wasn’t a Yellow Ferrari was it.
To vote for my pitch, annoyingly it can only be done if you have a facebook or linkedin account. Otherwise, many thanks for the thought. Thoughts count too!
Will update. All the best, Simon.
