Entrepreneurial youth

One of my 16-year-old sons just said to me, “Guess how much money I made today? $250. And guess how long I worked? Six hours.” He and a buddy contracted to do some yard work for a lady, clearing brush and trees and cleaning her gutters. She paid them $500.

“Dad, we cut down five trees. That would have cost her like $800. We gave her a great deal.”

Capitalism lives!
