For some time I have been playing around with a hobby business making polo mallets for polo players. I figure if I can do some good by building these mallets, donating some of the profits to charities (particularly orphans), teach my kids about business, and in turn help policy makers understand the benefits of micro manufacturing. Some of the profits went to orphans.
I've met many of these orphans and soon as COVID is over I will go down and visit them again. If you have a few dollars to spare you may want to donate HERE. I always thought it would be a great idea to build a big business from micro-manufacturing and sponsor a whole orphanage and help other kids.
Just...pipe dreams for a moment but I might start working on it a little more.
Micro-manufacturing has the ability the product much short and long term value by bringing tourism, raising skills, and attracting larger organizations. Specifically, Delta County could engage in micro-manufacturing such as golf clubs, snow shoes, and other outdoor products to bolster its economy. To do this right would be helpful to have multiple types of anchor industries growing to create related clusters that push each other to innovate.
The little side micro-manufacturing business I'm creating is Escanaba Polo Mallet Company. https://www.escanabapolomallet.com/ My son made the logo...super cool!
