A long time ago in a galaxy not too far away, while I was preparing to take the LSAT (no, I didn’t go to law school; thank you for saving me from a lifetime of hell, Universe!) I was asked to assist a nutritional supplement and cosmetic manufacturing company on the Wasatch Front with a validation project. The task was to validate the Genetic Detection System which used Polymerase Chain Reaction. I can’t remember which particular supplier and which specific device was used but it looked something like this:

If you’re asking , “What is PCR?” then you’re at the same point I was at, back then.

The saleswoman from he supplier (Sigma Aldrich?) was excited to visit the local area and try the hot spots the foodies suggested. One of the days we went to lunch, we all ordered a delicious pineapple drink (non-alcoholic). It wasn’t until afterward that I realized just how healthy pineapples are! Did you know pineapples are:

HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly.

Any item you pass while you’re travelling or working (as long as it’s NOT proprietary) and take a picture of, any beach-umbrella-clad drink…

and PCR Genetic Detection System or Inductively Coupled Plasma Opitcal Emission Spectrometry device(ICP-OES) — all you have to do is upload a picture or video clip of that to your existing social media sites and Homemaide will send you a commission for every purchase your friends make.

AND — they don’t have to buy an expensive GDS or ICP or HPLC or Gas Chromatography for you to earn a commission. If they bought only one of the standards needed or some of the powder used to create media (used for quadrant streaking of sampled products) or Petri dishes, tubes, pipettes, standards, supples ($10 — $100 vs +$10,000), you’d earn a commission off that.

If your friends on social media bought even one tiny beach umbrella, that they saw in your picture, video, or voice-automated update — those items can also be shipped to a family member, relative, or friend for the upcoming holiday, birthday or anniversary — and you’ll still earn a commission from that purchase.

If they bought a helicopter, airplane, stock in an airline, stock in Welch’s fruit snacks, or Nature Valley’s granola bars or Sharpie’s markers — YOU’d earn a commission off of that purchase. If they bought any item from the pictures you uploaded, you’d earn money. That’s the magic of Homemaide.
