Family start-up business
Sample of a simple video.http://youtu.be/x5ICYmBnALY
My name is David Lawrence, and I would like to start a business to include my family in my everyday life. I love my family with all my heart, and me and my wife put our kids and their future ahead of ours at all times.
We want to start a business that has multiple ways to make income for the family, yet includes each of them in their own specific roles. The business will bring happiness to many people of all ages, including my own family! It started with an idea to create a mobile lazer tag company that can go out to birthday parties, or events, and provide all the equipment including obstacles to hide behind, and the software for scoreboards. We added a little variety by including nerf type guns, and decided super soakers would be an added benefit as well. There are many ideas behind the additional benefits of a party like goodie bags and such, but that is not the real benefit...
Me and my son love to edit videos! I currently do some of this in my current job for training and informational videos, and for me; I could sit hours at a computer and make something common really come to life. The added benefit to our lazer tag or super soaker battle would be it would all be collected on film with a GoPro type of camera strapped to each person or gun. Not only would the customers have fun during the battle, they will be able to take something home to remember forever. This is especially nice for parents during birthday parties to have something to look back on, or the teenager that wants to post their event on Youtube, or share with their friends. Our plan, for when we do not have parties on the weekend (or weekdays) would be to set up on the beach, and have super soaker battles, and promote our product their, while also earning income for anyone that would like to have some lasting memories during spring or summer break.
With the right software and hardware, we can promise the customer a personalized and customized 5-10 min video of all the highlights, including slow-motion shots & sound effects. (Just think, a super soaker shot to the face in slow motion!) Running with current technology, we would put the produced video on a flash drive for them to take home, and they would also have the option for a longer video with multiple angles sent to them within a weeks (or less) time. Nowadays, this could be emailed, but of course the dvd option would be available for all.
My family is excited beyond belief, and we all want to get into this as soon as possible. The only thing holding us back is funds. A lot goes into starting a business (the right way) and the equipment needed. At this point we have nothing to start with. I work full time, my wife stays at home with the kids, and we are ready for this new adventure in life. Please help an American Dream come true for my family, and at the same time think about how many people would love to take part in this business. We will not be one of those companies that looks to charge outrageous prices, because we will be determined to ALWAYS beat a competitor's price!
