Kid Makes a Ton of Cash on Man Candles
After relentlessly teasing his sister for selling candles as a school fundraiser, 13-year old Hart Main came up with a genius idea. Make candles that even dudes will like! So, after a little experimenting, Hart came up with a series of candles for men called, appropriately enough, “Mancans!”
Using empty soup cans, he sold candles with a variety of fragrances including bacon, New York-style pizza, sawdust, and the smell of fresh leather baseball mitt.
How did he do? His entire stock, all 500 hundred, sold out online and in stores. At $5 a pop, he says he has enough money to buy a new bike.
And what were you doing when you were 13?
