Diversify. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Adapt quickly to the market change. If contractors have heard this once, they have heard it a hundred times. Still, it doesn’t necessarily make it easy. Sometimes diversifying your company can be as difficult as finding a vegetable in Rosie O’Donnell’s refrigerator.

Well, here is one idea… granted not a very good one. Seems like a company is beginning to manufacture air-conditioned shoes. You can read all the details here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/11/22/nsmell122.xml.

According to The Telegraph, “The uppers suck in air through tiny holes in the laces and sole which then circulates around the feet. A pump under the heel pushes the air back out through the sole when the wearer takes a step forward. The makers claim the system provides a constant cool wind-stream around the foot which could prevent moisture and bacteria from building up between the toes, giving fungal infections and athletes' foot the boot.”

At this point the product is only available for men. Shocking!

Maybe Donald Trump can purchase a pair for Rosie as a Christmas present. See what I did there? I made my blog come full circle. That is why my three readers are loyal to Gargaro’s World.
