General 'snap Shot' Autobiography, Can Be Used By Anyone

568 words - 3 pages

My first self income came from a business my cousin and I ran selling refreshments at a gulf course located in West Seneca. It was supported by our parents and we were both very young, I was 14 and my cousin Michael was 12. I loved this business, it was relaxing but it was also a learning process.My cousin and I would set up shop almost every day during summer break from 8 AM to 3 PM so we would have the rest of the day to do whatever we wanted. A lot of the time we would go on days when ever we felt like it, if one didn't feel like going that day we would ask a friend to go with one. We would always load our set-up in our aunts car every night, ...view middle of the document...

After we had set-up we would take turns proposing our product to prospective costumers by asking "would you like to buy a ice cold can of pop", most would spend a buck on our pop and others would just pass. I believe some of the reason the people would pass is because we sold a generic pop called WOP (Wegmans pop) and people might have felt like they were being ripped off. I believe the pop cost us an average of 30/can. Another thing that was cool is our parents bought the supplies and let us keep the all the money. We would average making $80/day and split the money. The most we made in one day was $150.We would come across quite a number of people everyday and some of them would take a minute and talk with us. A lot of the people would tell us that we were doing a good job and we should save the money we made for college, we never saved anything. Others would want to talk in general and ask us what we want to do with our life, I would always say I wanted to be a cop and my cousin would say he wanted to be a lawyer. Since then our goals have changed.I loved running that business we had. It took very little effort and it would have been my idealistic lifestyle at the time with plenty of spending money. It was also a spiritualistic experience also in the sense we spent most our day talking and relaxing outdoors. The only reason we quit was because we grew out if it and it would probably look a little ridiculous for a 18 year old asking "would you like to buy a ice cold can of pop".
