How an 8-year-old entrepreneur kept his mom and 3 siblings afloat
I was a lot like like this kid. After my folks got divorced, my mom was left with just a few dollars of child support per week, and we grew up poor. I did, in fact, sell things along the way, like flower and garden seeds, newspapers, and more. I was also the first to go to college in my family. I suppose that's why this StoryCorps story touched me deeply. See if it does you, too.
