How to make $70/hr holding a sign on a street corner

We have all seen the guys on the sidewalk next the road holding those signs, advertising for tax places during tax season or the furniture store "going out of business (for the 5th time)" sale.

Usually these guys are day workers that are paid $7/hr.

Well the guys who started the "Aarrow Advertsing":http://www.aarrowads.com company decided they would take a bottom-of-the-barrel job and turn it into a $70/hr job and even a hot national franchise.

Must see presentation for entreprenuers

I saw this presentation from David Heinemeier Hansson last year at the 2008 Startup School. Out of all the big names that presented there his was the one that hit home with so many, including me.

The idea was simple. Run your company like a business.
1. Make a product
2. Set a price
3. Make a profit

There are a dozen other gems in this presentation and I would recommend it to anyone interested in starting a WebApp business (or any business for that matter.)

WARNING: Unfortunately David drops the F-bomb several times during the presentation.
