Hi guys! Hope you're staying safe.
I'm working on an e-book, and it got me remembering trying to make money as a kid. My parents never encouraged me, not even with a lemonade stand, so I went to my friends with advice to make money. Sometimes this resulted in good ideas, and other times--well, some kids really need therapy.
There was a rumor in my hometown (a small suburb of Indianapolis) that Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis had a $10,000 reward for catching grave robbers. To a third-grader, that's a lot of money. So me, my brother, and two neighbor boys hatched a plan to go to Crown Hill and conduct a stakeout on Halloween. We planned to split the money four ways and live like kings, but then we realized we couldn't trick-or-treat if we were watching the cemetery. Priorities. Thank God I never brought this up to my parents, as I'm sure that wouldn't have gone over well.
Anyway, what is the worst idea you've ever had to make money, and did it work?
And no, I don't know if Crown Hill has a bounty on grave robbers.
