I've been thinking about this for a while. Basically, I'd talk local business owners into paying me to dress up in a costume and stand by the side of the road with a sign, waving and stuff to get people who are driving by to come in and spend their cash. Could also do events and sidewalk stuff in the next town over (handing out flyers or samples). Three national chains in my area pay employees to do that currently. I don't know if it would result in more business for the companies, though. What do you guys think?
