Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

Telecom ideas are soooo nineties ...

You know what we should start? A search engine!

Just imagine it, you type a couple of words in a browser and it immediately finds thousands of sites relevant to your query.

We are going to be BIG! ... BIG I tell you!

We just have to make sure the user experience is better than the crappy websites trying to do it right now.

As VP of marketing, I would first of all need to come up with a company name... how's iFreeBeer?
Clearly, I'm going to have to be CLO.

That's misleading and will kill our profits if we have to give out too much freebeer.

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

I wish you the best of luck and you should know one thing:

the more you contribute to the health and welfare of others, your 'richness' will go beyond what money could ever offer you.

Cheers

I want to be the Localization Director. I can handle anything related to documentation, copywriting, localization, translations, editing... the whole nine yards. And yes, I do have experience in the mobile telephony field

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

Can I be some random IT guy? I'm the one you all think keeps the systems running all day, but then you notice I actually just surf the net the entire time I'm in the office, only taking a break for coffee, toilet, or to ring my friends in various countries around the world. You'd like to fire me, but you're scared that I might actually know something no-one else does, so you won't.

So then you hire someone else with your secret plan of using them to replace me, except I'm the only person who can interview them, and I'm smart and guessed your plan and hired a total retard, so you have to fire them instead.

But they claim unfair dismissal and win, and then you get even more scared of firing me.

And after 5 years I get a job offer paying much more money, you write a glowing reference in the hope of me leaving, it works, and I resign.

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

One of the funniest threads for a long time. EF is really getting quite addictive to me.



A pity I have so many projects of my own currently and just don't have enough time.

If you take it seriously there is enough expertise and brainpower in this thread to make a successful company.

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

Can I apply for HR position? I'm good at recruiting people. I will make a significant cost cut but expect a thick bonus and 13th cheque. In the meantime I'm trying to pass my forklift license. Although it is already my fifth approach, but frankly I should be able to succeed quite soon

You must be joking about the telecom rates!!! Switzerland must be one of the most expensive in Europe for mobile calls...
France is was more expensive, pay as you go, depending on the size of your top up lasts from a week to a month. My back up Orange (swiss) phone gets 10 CHF a year.

Why dont we provide Internet Service Providings, which are cheaper than the existing Internet Service Providings people are getting from their current Internet Service Providings?

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

I'm way too lazy to read the entire thread. I just know that in all big and successful companies there are jobs with a high salary and nothing to do. I'm prepared not to do any kind of work whatsoever. Can I apply for such a position? And what annual bonus do I have to be prepared for in case I really do an excellent job at doing nothing?
