    So my schools participating in the Junior Achievements Program, some of you may have heard of it.

    It's when kids (~14-18) try and set up their own business.

    We have 8 weeks to set one up and make the highest amount of profit before time runs out to win.


    We are having debates as to how we should raise money, and then what are BIG thing would be.


    Can the community help me out a bit and give me some ideas?

    forgot to say DSs too. I find PSP > DS when fixing, it's just so easy to take a PSP apart.

    That seems like a good idea, but I doubt it would make much money. Last year, there was this water balloon fight and it made something like $800, and that was just for our budget, and we still werent first.

    Nice try anyway, if it werent supposed to be a group effort, I'm sure I would have won. (I'd send you some of the prize money too [​IMG])

    OK, I got an idea. Get two people from your school, like the headmaster and the deputy headmaster and tell everybody you will gunge the one who gets the most money paid towards them. You will make a killing.

    Replace gunge with anything else if you wish.

    Unfortunately, it's illegal [​IMG] ; good thing though, otherwise I'd have made us broke.

    buy stuff from Dealextreme and sell them back at a higher price to make profit. like these:

    stink bombs: .31 cents each
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8570

    sell for $5 each. i would pay a quick buck to completely gag all my friends and pull a really good prank. it will net you $4.70 per product you sell so it will make a lot of money.

    ninja stars (real):
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.19360

    sell for $8. these things are really cool. and you can throw them at walls and they stick.

    those were just stuff off the top of my head. look around and DX is very cheap so you can make a lot of profit if you buy good and cool products.
