TOPEKA, KS–Area man Chad Booth announced this week that mentioning his great idea for a startup company during casual conversation with coworkers and acquaintances was literally the last thing on his mind, but if it came up organically, hey, who was he to deprive them of hearing about the future of technology.
“I’m not one of those pompous blowhards that will self-promote any chance they get, so I’m definitely not going to be telling every single person on the street,” Booth said. “But if someone asks me what I’ve been up to lately then it’ll just be awkward if I don’t tell them that I’ve come up with an idea that’ll blow Elon Musk out of the water.”
Although Booth’s business plan is reportedly still in the works, he describes the core competence as “a crowd-sourced cloud storage system for green energy.”
“I’m really excited about this, but I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ who brings up his idea out of nowhere,” Booth said. “So as you can imagine, I was thrilled when Tad in accounting started talking about his kid’s soccer game the other day, since it provided such a natural segue into my top choice investors.”
Booth has so far been overwhelmed by his peers’ great interest in his company, whom he reports have been indulging him every chance they get.
“So far, I’ve been incredibly pleased with how much interest my concept is generating,” Booth said. “Like when Barb asked me to pitch in for a gift for the secretary, or when I heard John talking about how difficult things have been with his wife since the miscarriage, I knew they were just thinly veiled excuses to get me to detail my marketing strategy.”
