The pizza gig.

I learned years ago that there were some strange ways people figured out how to make money.

Here’s one that I learned in a curious way.  I had just gotten a new car and my first car payment of about $148.00 bucks a month for a 1984 Honda Accord, my last car had “bitten the big one” so I went to a corner car lot that you see on the side of the road.  I was looking for my third car.   So I was in need of making some money and being a young kid I wasn’t sure how I was going to pay for this car I had just gotten with the full coverage insurance and registration.  I had my hands full. I put four hundred down and traded in my 1968 Dodge Dart and I was kind of nervous but feeling good, but the clock was ticking and I  needed some quick cash.

Fortunately for me I met this guy living in Brea, California at the time.  He had asked me to come to work for him about a month earlier but I wasn’t interested then. By this time I was a whipper snapper of a sales man, and I thought I had a decent grasp on whether I could make money.  I decided to listen to his pitch.  You can make some serious money delivering pizza he said.  How serious?  My guys can make up to 8 grand a month using my secret techniques.
