Creating a good idea out of nothing and make it into viable business option is what called true businessmen or entrepreneurs.Senaball is one of such company which made business by sending a ball.

Unique Business Idea Story:

Sendaball, Inc. is a family business headquartered in Chicago. It is owned by a couple of BALLSY sisters who live across the street from each other in the same northwestside Chicago neighborhood they grew up in. They have been sending balls since the 90s, but one day in 2003 it seemed this CRAZY idea was meant to be a BUSINESS.Michele tells it like this: How did it start? I come from the direct mail world, so I knew the mailing rules. I made a practice of sending silly things in the mail over the years. One day I was in Osco, saw a BIN of bouncy balls, grabbed one and thought “I can mail this”. Took a sharpie, addressed it to my BFF Sharon, wrote “Have BALL with your new baby”, went to the post office and mailed it. Sharon loved it so much, my sister and i sent them again and again to other friends. A few years later while standing in line at the post office, a guy behind me asked about the balls and asked if I could send one for him. Initially I instructed him in the steps to do it himself, but by the time we got to the front of the line, he had given me the info and $5. Laughing, I called my sister and told her how funny that just was. She said, ” MICH, I THINK WE ARE ONTO SOMETHING”Melisa tells it like this: When I got that call, I told Michele I had seen an OPRAH the night before about women who took a chance & started a business with their unique ideas; I told her to listen to me, and these were all ’signs’ and WE should start a business, NOW.Number one rule – if someone offers to pay you to do something you are already doing, you may have a business!!
