I don't know if it was Father's Day that made me think of this, or just missing my two puppies while I'm on vacation. However, the topic this week is “flatus” (the technical terms for gas).
This entrepreneur started with an idea. A dog with a great deal of flatulence.
And, the book Walter the Farting Dog was written.
(click on any image below to view more details about that book at Amazon)
Now, similar to Chicken Soup for the Soul (but with more talk about flatulence), you can get all kinds of variations of this book.
And, you can even get Walter the Farting Dog in various languages!
The lesson here?
Lesson One. Animals with gas problems are hilarious!
Lesson Two. Everybody Toots.
Lesson Three. A bit of creativity, plus using real-life inspiration can turn into a very profitable formula for making money.
Lesson Four. When something works, run with it and branch off and expand!
A quick side note about choosing a niche.
When choosing a niche, consider the holidays. When your aunt asks your mom “What does your son do for a living these days?” — you may not want her to have to respond “Oh he runs sites selling dog fart stuff.”

PS. In your comments, be sure to include the names of your flatulent pets! (Or husbands….)
PS, again. I'm on vacation at a beach house with no internet access, so I won't be able to respond for a few days. Please don't think I'm being rude. 🙂
