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

Yes - along with a stock options plan in case of an IPO. After that you can say good bye and sail around your own little island in the Caribbean.

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?

your posts reminds me of a joke: a guy was standing in front of a restaurant enjoying the smell of the nice food. One day the owner told him: "you're here everyday and never order something. I want to be paid for the smell of my food". The guy took his purse and shaked it for a while saying: "I pay you with the sound of my coins".

Well. When I comes to Trump we all know that he has "done it"....weird hair or not.

Exactly my point. That is why most of us takes it very serious.

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

If you guys are really interested and keen about making money then I would like to start a Pyramid Scheme.

Its my idea, so I would be at the top of the Pyramid.

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

Thank you so far for all the input - funny as well as serious.

I have received a lot of PM's, which is very nice, but given the fact that I have to do some real work today, I will not be able to reply to you all until sometimes during the weekend.

All the good energy I sense in this thread makes me confident that we can get something up and running. What that something will be, I don't know, but unless we "take a shot" we have no chances of hitting anything

Yeah, I figure that this post progressive, idealistic, warranty avoiding concept is something that should be pursued to its natural end. Count me in.

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

I already see a few applicants for Accountant, But i think Id like that position as well. Every company needs a strong finance team.

I am prepared to work long hours and for a minimum wage

All I require is a nice letter pointing out I am highly skilled and the position cannot be filled by any suitable EU/Swiss nationals.

However, once i have secured the position (and my permit), I will have to restructure the budget to include a more sustainable salary (is 200k enough to live comfortably in switzerland?)


P.S. I actually do have 7 years expereince in the telecoms industry

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

A pyramid mobile company... best idea of the century!

... Make money, yes REAL MONEY, by just calling your friends!
Like you, I used to give a significant amount of my measly paycheck each month to huge multi billion Swiss Franc organizations, funding the directors next estate in the Bahamas and paying for their new Ferrari's.

But then I found PyraCall and it CHANGED MY LIFE! I am now living the life of the rich and famous and the best part is I can call THREE TIMES as much as I used to without worrying how much it will cost!

Get paid like a telco director! switch to PyraCall now and turn your life around MAKE CASH TODAY!

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

Hope this goes at the top of page 7 - heavens I've waited long enough.

I would be a shareholder, buying stock at CHF0.10 each - say 100,000 - that's CHF1000.00.

For a couple of years I do sweet FA while the rest of you work you butts off.

Then when the stock is about CHF10.00 I'll sell out. You won't even know I was there...

Sounds good... I want in!
I want to be Random IT guy no. II and provide 'the muscle" (I'm Eastern European, so nobody will mess with us!)... In addition, I can be the the center piece of our ultra-rad-xtreme-kewl TV spot (think squirrel suit off a high cliff in CH)

The Pyramid scheme already started long ago, and everyone knows the money is on the inside...
