As a boy, like many of you, I was always looking for ways to make money, not because I was poor but because it seemed like that was the thing to do.
That’s what adults did and the pattern was set.
Plus I loved comic books and in the back were ads about how to make money selling things. The one that really got me was the one from American Seeds. “Make money! Get prizes!” And the prizes were things like a transistor radio, or a walkie-talkie set, a sleeping bag with a part that went over your head, an air rifle (bb-gun), and a lot more cool stuff. All I had to do was sell a 50 pack of seeds at 15 cents each. Easy!
I sent away for my pack of seeds and I was so excited when they arrived. Seeds for Zinnias and Petunias and Asters even some vegetable seeds.
