No. of Recommendations: 0 much time does that take? *starts thinking about laundromats*

This depends on what you mean: time spent working? time until this income is realized? other time?

My point was to take "lessons learned" from TMM and see if they can be applied. I think owning a laundromat fits the model very nicely -- it's not a job requiring fancy cars, clothes, or zip codes. It weathers economic ups and downs quite nicely, and likely stands to benefit from economic slow downs and recessions. It's a source of revenue that leaves enough time to persue other means of income simultaneously.

I'm not saying I want to become a Laundromat Queen, only that I think it's interesting to see how the model works.

Again, thoughts?
