Yes, Allen Simon, the creator of the Wee-Wee Pad became filthy rich by taking a concept many of us would consider untouchable and turning it into a million dollar empire. He was aired recently on Joan Rivers show, “How’d you get so rich”, and owns a whole floor of a building in New York and lives amongst famous people such as Rupert Murdoch.
And here’s the thing – he never even went to high school and was actually a carpet layer who then moved into a dog grooming business.
So how did he get so rich?
It was through one simple idea.
He noticed people using newspapers for the pets to pee on and thought to himself “This is ridiculous. I’ll make my own pad.”
His sales have gone from $1,000 to $30 million.
Now let me ask you a question: How many people would have seen a pet peeing and thought nothing of it.
Needless to say it would be a lot, right?
And are those people millionaires.
Why? Because they didn’t act on it. They didn’t show initiative. They didn’t have a go.
Creating wealth really all boils down to a couple of simple things, doesn’t it?
And Allen Simon has proven you don’t need conventional education.
No, all you need to do is find a problem that bothers a lot of people. Build a solution to that problem – and then marketing the heck out of it.
So start looking out for problems in your niche today. Think about how you can solve them.
