I have mentioned in the past that I am always amazed at the creativity that people come up with in ways to earn money. When I was still living in Japan, I mentioned about how a friend’s child had taken his words and turned it into a money making venture:
Apparently one week his son was complaining about the amount of allowance he was receiving and wanted more. Money was tight and my friend was frustrated and basically blurted out, “If you want more money, you can have whatever you’re able to save this household”
That was the end of it he thought until his son began coming to him with ways the family could save money and asking for payment when the ideas worked.
