My First Successful Small Business: I Was a 8 Year Old Piraguero.

For as long as I can remember… I was an enterprising young man. I have always believed that my first business started in Puerto Rico selling cassette tapes (mix tapes) of radio broadcast in NYC by DJ pioneers Red Alert and Mr Magic. That was until an old friend and neighbor reminded me that I sold him his very first Piragua. This had completely escaped my memory until he mentioned it and the reason I did this was because there were already too many kids selling kool aid on the weekends by our house. My business partner was my Titi Lissy (who I was raised with… she is more like my sister) and we cranked out these Snoopy piraguas by the fire hydrant on a hot summer day.

I really miss this machine, I wish I still had it.

Now I know why I have always wanted a Piragua cart… I still do… but just want the syrup to be sugar free.

What was your first successful business?
