I wanted to share a neat story about my now 13 year old son, Kameron. Last summer he wanted a project mower, he wanted to rebuild a lawnmower engine so we found one with a broken piston.
With the assistance of a family friend and Kameron, they honed, rebuilt and replaced gaskets. He sold that mower for a $500 profit. Then purchased his second mower and did some minor adjustments and sold it for a $1100 profit.
All of this was for his next purchase, his 1953 Allis Chalmers CA, his pride and joy. He has done a lot to it with some help of new friends far and wide. He re-wired the tractor and put in a new fuel line and fuel filter. With much generosity of Titan wheel in Quincy Il they took the rims and hubs and rebuilt and painted. All in line with his next project, he wants to repaint and restore.
This summer he has been given 4 mowers to which he has fixed and flipped to a $1000 profit. He has also started a small popcorn plot and bee/butterfly pollination plot. So with all the COVID-19 issues he has learned so much that text books would have not taught him yet. He loves this new found passion and plans on growing this entrepreneurship.
