Here are some of my adventure . I have been in business since the young age of 7 . I sold cookie and candy to the kids with my lunch money allowance . after the age of 7 -10
I started a selling bottles and had a very successful business that until the adults realize what i was doing with my bottle company more about this later
Each day my mother gave me and my younger brother a quarter to buy and milkshake and a oatmeal cookie .Since we walk to school we both pass by the neighbor hood store towards school were there was kids using their lunch allowance to buy penny cookie and candy .
As a young kid i notice opportunity .
Can you believe i seen opportunity as a youth . But i did each day i took my allowance that my parents gave me and invest my money into penny candy and cookies for a return on my quarter .
My insight as a kid was at the right time of life . This happen when kids was beginning busing for one part of the district local schools to another district . This happen with (Segregation )
Whites kids was coming to majority African schools . And we were going to majority Caucasian Schools .
I seen a better opportunity for my enterprise . The kids their had more resource for my penny cookies and candy business and they were willing to pay more for the sweets .
That my business could offer them . And could not get this assortment of candy and cookies across the bridge . My Business Thrive
One after noon my mother notice that i had more money in my pockets .That she was giving me each morning . She was gave me quarter i was returning with $1.25 or more of change each day
And my Mom demand me for some answer .And she want the answer quick
( Her thoughts my son is stealing from the school ) Before my mom could retrieve my profits i had to give a detail example . How i was making money
And what i did with her quarters and how i invest my money into a business that made money for me . And why i was not enjoying shakes and oatmeal cookies like my brother
That was the last time she gave me money for Shakes
In fact since she was my angel investor she ask for a tiny profit . When I Sold .Lucky me !
