My try to improve Pakistan by creating an online custom tee shirt company

I wanted to do something great so I started this campaign on Indiegogo. The project is near to my heart as it is my own idea. I was always frustrated as I could not buy the kind of t-shirt I wanted so I am making a company which would deliver the teeshirt you want and design.

It seems to be going very good on Indiegogo. It has just been some hours and I have got my first dollar raised.

Small amount of money is meaningless

I read an article awhile back about a Stanford MBA class. The students were split up into teams. Each team was given some nominal amount of money, $5-10, and told to make as much money as possible in one week. At the end of the week each team would give a 10 minute presentation to the class about their approach.

Some teams went out and gambled, buying lottery tickets or playing slot machines. After all, $5 was such a small amount that many students couldn't fathom how you could effectively turn it into anything more. 

The students that did the best however realized that the $5 was meaningless. The point of the assignment was to identify what skills and resources you have available if you had to start from nothing.

One of the better teams sold restaurant reservations. They'd make reservations at the most popular restaurants in the area and would sell them to people waiting in line. They found that people were also willing to just give away their worse reservation after purchasing a better one, which they could later sell when it became more valuable.  

You shouldn't be asking yourself what is the best way to invest $35. It's such a small amount of money that it's almost meaningless. Instead ask yourself what skills and ideas do you have that people would be willing to pay for.

The team that won sold the 10 minute presentation slot to a small company. After all, what's more valuable than 10 minutes in front of Stanford's best and brightest MBA students.
