Snow Entrepreneur


The Register-Mail:

Colton Sexton, 15, of Galesburg, carries his wheeled snow shovel down a street in Galesburg early this morning. Sexton was walking to the downtown area in hopes of drumming up some shoveling business.

During the last big snow, Sexton estimates he made $500 working his trade.

Editor’s note: I included this quick post as an example of two things. First, Colton as an entrepreneur, recognized an opportunity to make some money (the recent snowfall). Also, I liked the fact that Colton has developed some technology (the snow scrapper he carries) to work smarter, not harder.
