Got a spare million lying around and want to send a Country-Western-driven message to those bastards in the Corporate Community who dare question your pro-activeness? Bob Cassell has a proposition for you:

To Whom It May Concern
New Business Development is truly the life blood of any company.
A NEW SPORT opens up the avenues tremendously...from Sponsorships to General and Promotional Advertising and More.
It clearly sends a message to the Corporate Community that your agency is more than just pro-active. It screams volumes of positioning yourself as number one.
Permit me to explain.
I have created, developed and Market Tested with resounding success a NEW SPORT.
For an initial investment of approximately $1 million since the New Sport in question has been both proven and tested with resounding success the return should exceed $400 million per year.
So the logical next step is finding representation. Hopefully you will consider taking on such a project. Please understand that this is not just another good idea. Rather it is a proven and tested SPORT.
I have taken the liberty of listing the various revenue streams.
Television Rights Sponsorships Note: corporate sponsorsors will exceed the $1 million initial investment.
Its Own Song...the name of the Sport written and performed by a Country Western artist
And The International Arena
The SPORT in question has no current competition, is family oriented, Country Western driven, is non-violent, has no season and pits men versus women in got wrenching racing competition.
All I want are but a few points and the opportunity to spearhead the project. The balance is for your discretion. You see I just received the greatest gift of all...my teenage daughter just beat Cancer. So I'm wealthy with joy and happiness. What more could I ask for.
Having a successful track record in New Business Development for major Advertising Agencies, the Fortune 100 and National & International Publishing organizations I speak from experience.
Hopefully I have peaked your curiosity.
Should relocation be neccessary I will be there in a heart beat to help make it become a reality and develop a host of New Business opportunities for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Since I'm already heavily invested in the Cascadian Stomper League and have burned all bridges with the Corporate Community, I'll have to pass on this NEW SPORT, tempting as it may be. Sorry Bob, but good luck anyway.
