money for opinions

Cool. I just got a call from a marketing guy that wants me to go to a meeting in a couple of weeks. It's for Polaris ATV owners. They want our opinion on some future concept vehicles (like side by sides). It's a two or two and half hour meeting and I get $100 just for showing up and playing along! Not bad...

I doubt they'll let me but I'll try to snap a few pics with the phone cam. There was a picture of a really cool looking sport side by side vehicle on the online questionaire I filled out. Kinda like the Yamaha Rhino but it looked really mean. I want one of those things for when I am out with the family and too lazy to ride my quad so I am looking forward to it.

Polaris needs some kinda help. sofar they are like the Harley Davidson of ATV's. I have a friend to "tries" to race harescrambles with one and his goal is to finish without breaking down. Couldn't do it all season last year and no finishes yet this year. I got sick of helping to push it onto the trailer cause it wouldn't start after limping back to the pits.

Anyway, congrats on the easy money. I'd love to do it.

I was given $20 one time to keep my opinions to myself, shut up, and get lost....is that the same?

Well, I started out with nothing and I still have most of it...

I think so.

Too bad you couldn't build that into some type of busniess?
