Crash & Burn – Group Project
“Let’s have some fun with this”
We used Breathalyzers funds and invested most towards rain ponchos to sell for the upcoming football games and rainy days.
Used funds from previous endeavors to fund a private party with hired professional dancers.
*Surprisingly good turnout and success, plus a great time. The dancers were not nude either.
Used retained earnings to invest in mardigras beads to sell at the Eastern Michigan tailgate and other occasions.
Our last event was a modeled after the TV show – “Battle of the Sexes” Held in Keith’s apt, teams of 4 competed in various sexually suggestive competitions ($25/team).
Revenue - $275
11 teams X $25/team = $275
Costs - $120
Party/Game supplies, food, drinks
Profit = $155
Overall, great learning experience. We had an amazing time and a lot of fun. The project was stressful at times but we couldn’t stay discouraged if something did not work out as planned.
The ponchos were somewhat a fail, but we hung on to them to see if we could make any money before we returned them.
Having a private dance club was true edgework. Some of us were skeptical but we knew it could be be huge. It ended up just coming together for us after we stressed about the risk/reward scenario.
This project was quite memorable and has influenced some inspirational initiatives among our members which we would like to discuss with the entire class and minor department.
