In 1989 I was 12 and wanted a new fishing rod because, not unsurprisingly, I was mad keen on fishing.My parents could not afford one but did suggest that I do something in exchange for money.Which is a novel concept if you are young and naive about how the world works. After a brief crash course in what business was and how you could exchange things people wanted to earn money and with that money I could buy my fishing rod.I went around a local estate, selling door to door and asking people if they wanted to buy hanging baskets.My parents had a small garden nursery at the time. They ended up selling to me wholesale while I put my retail markup on and delivered them over the weekends.As a 12-year old I was making between 50 and 200 per weekend giving people something they wanted.Today I trade stocks and stock options and I occasionally teach people some of the lessons I've learnt. I realised very early on that money is a stepping stone to the next objective.Turning $200 into $300 by investing in equipment to clean people driveways is smart.
