Crowdkindle.com – Let's Start a Fire

I’m developing a new website that I just decided to name Crowdkindle.com. It’s one of the more basic websites I have in development, but it has me excited! It’s very much me!

I plan on merging the match.com concept with my own ideas. I hope to turn Crowdkindle into a place where those garage tinkering dreamers can share their thoughts and connect with like minded individuals.

The concept is creativity and innovation, my hope is collaboration and my goal is to free everyone’s minds. I think it will be a lot of fun and this is only the beta version.

Follow me as I take you through the steps of creating your own fully functioning website! I’ll be posting articles as I develop the site and show you the little tricks I’ve learned.

What do you think of the logo?? I greatly appreciate any feedback and ideas for the site!

Business Review: Philly Kitchen Share

This new business is based on a model that I’ve always been interested in. Their website is horrible, but the idea itself is very interesting. There are numerous chefs, bakers and caterers in the industry that simply cannot afford their own facilities to operate in. Perhaps they only want to work part time or maybe they just can’t raise enough capital to build a commercial kitchen (a common occurrence in this economy). Whatever the reason may be, having the ability to rent a commercial kitchen for a flat daily fee can open a lot of doors, reduce a lot of headaches and hedge a lot of risk!

Laundromats, self serve car washes, Kinkos and do it yourself pet grooming stores are some existing concepts that follow this model in the consumer market.

What other areas in the professional market could this concept be applied? Machining & fabrication, automotive maintenance and wood working come to mind. Any industry in which the cost of entry (expensive equipment, etc.) is high may benefit from this kind of business model.

Can you think of any?
