Default $700 a day... just for parking two trucks!

Imagine you're back in school...

Except now, in school - everyone has a cell phone!

The problem? Schools often don't like cellphones - they can be very distracting - and can confiscate them!

That can be a very expensive loss, having to replace your cell phone. A lot of kids also have iPhones and other "smart phones" which cost hundreds of dollars each!

Now... a business has solved the problem of confiscated cell phones!

(By the way, I found out about this from Dane Carlson's "Business Opportunities" blog - a great website to keep your eye on!)

One entrepreneurial guy keeps two trucks parked outside of two schools in the Bronx. He charges kids $1 to store their cellphones in one of his trucks for the day - so there's no danger they'll be confiscated at school.

With these two trucks - he serves 700 students a day!

If you add it all up - that's $700 a day. $3500 a week (for 5 days). For what? Basically, for parking two trucks!

This business could probably be replicated in many other places where schools confiscate cell phones...
