Last year, between his job and his side business

he pulled in one point four million.

A satisfying tax return

for the kid who lived on oatmeal

and bathed in the creek before school,

who hunted down bottles for recycling money.

bouncing the rambunctious energy that drove people crazy,

oh that kid who knew the value of a dime,

and wasn’t afraid to work for it,

or to convince other people to pay him well for it.

Skill is one thing, but charm really pays the bills.



True story.

Kids with ADHD grow up to be adults who are bored with only one job, and have the willingness to risk time and money on entrepreneurial ventures!

Prompt from today was to write about money.
