That hustle mentality starts young! A teen in the UK was suspended from school a whole day for selling “squirts” of hand sanitizer to his friends to protect them from contracting the coronavirus.
Jenny Tompkins, the mother of 13-year-old Olive Cooper, posted her son’s clever money-making idea on Facebook and was met with many praises for her son’s entrepreneurial spirit.
“Very hard to discipline this behaviour when his dad phones him from work to call him a f**king legend,” Tompkins wrote on her post.
Oliver made a little over $11 from his hand sanitizer hustle, selling each squirt for 64 cents. Tompkins said her son bought himself a bag of Doritos with his new-found wealth and reportedly plans to buy a kebab with the rest of his proceeds.
Kids say (and do) the darndest things!
