Hello friends, I am a notorious entrepreneur, both on and offline. This little number here is what I call "the bum+water hustle." Some of you might know this one already-for those who do not..YOU'RE WELCOME! When I was twenty years old I wanted to get a jet ski for the summer months to use at the Jersey shore(No, I'm not Italian). I pulled this hustle off successfully for three weeks and made a killing. If you live in a medium to large city with at least 50,000 people then you can make some decent money with this. This works best during the spring and summer months. Any day will work fine but weekends are best for this hustle because there are more people out. First thing you need to do is go to costco, BJ's, or any big bulk store in your area. If you don't have a membership to any bulk store..DO PUSHUPS NOW! You can get a guest pass or call a friend or relative-use their membership. Grab two shopping carts and head over to where they keep the bottled water. You're looking for the same water you would buy in a convenience store/gas station/quickie mart for $1.25 Buy several cases of 36+ bottles per case! They usually cost like $3 bucks a case. Make sure they fit in your vehicle-duh this should go without saying but you never know these days. You should have a cooler at home. If you don't-DO PUSHUPS! Where the hell do you keep your beer man? Get a decent sized cooler to hold at least 36 bottles of water, plus ice. Next thing you do is find a homeless person or two and take them out to lunch. You need to invest a few bucks to make alot of bucks. This is business 101. Hopefully you knew this lesson..If you didnt...yup you guessed it-PUSHUPS! Don't just give the homeless person money and say god bless- actually take him/her out to lunch and conversate. You are looking to find out if they are at least semi-trustworthy. Also, find out where they hang out and where they sleep. This is good to know because they will be selling the bottled water for you and if they skip out with the money, you will at least have an idea of where to find him/her. Bums are usually not hard to find, and I have never been double crossed by one. Ask the homeless person if they like money-duh! They will say you betcha-and you say great lets go make some. Introduce him/her to your cooler full of ice and bottled water. Work out a deal to pay them $15-$20 dollars for every 72 bottles of water they sell. You can pay them less if you want but I am not a douchebag-so i pay them well. The water sells best at $1 each. Some parts of the country will tolerate $2 like NY and California. Now here is the MOST IMPORTANT PART of the hustle. Find a busy intersection, off ramp (with a traffic light at the end of it), or shopping center traffic light and place homeless person there with the cooler. Take the wheels off the cooler so they are less tempted to simply leave with it and hide from you. Check back with him every 90 minutes to see if he has sold out-bring more ice and water bottles for the cooler. Bring him a snack too as he will be hungry. Treat your employees right, its just good karma. Keep doing this for 8-10 hours. At the end of the day, collect the money and give homeless person his cut of the pie. They will usually ask if they can keep working with you-setup a time to meetup the following day and repeat the process again. It is a win win situation for both of you. Cost of 180 bottles of water= $15 Cost of 5 bags ice = $ 5 Cost of cooler(if needed) = $15 Cost of 1 Bum employee = $15 (Average) Cost of Food for Bum = $10 Total Expenses ____________ $60 (or $45 if you have cooler already) My bum averaged 150 waters sold PER DAY. At One dollar each = $150 Leftover water was carried over to next day. NET PROFIT in my pocket = $100 usd($5 went towards gas) YOU CAN SELL THE WATER YOURSELF but I have other things going on so this was not an option for me-the profit will be much better if you sell the water yourself. It is your choice but the profit is nice either way. You may also setup two bums on seperate intersections and do very well for yourself. Simply double the numbers above-it is more work and driving for you but hey you will clear $200+ per day! Thanks for reading and have a fantastic day! I have tons of these quirky hustles that I have personally tried and successfully pulled off. Maybe I should write a book? Hmm.. see ya later.
