Many years ago, we bought a small, very fuel efficient car. It was great on gas. We decided that we could make money by taking on a paper route.
We took two routes that were side-by-side and built up the routes by getting more subscribers. The only real down side was having to get out and collect for the papers. The key here is to work with a newspaper that will get subscribers to pay in advance.
The great part of the job was that we are normally night people and the hours were perfect. The routes were great and most of our customers were wonderful. They even gave tips and gifts at Christmas.
We increased our profits by providing outstanding customer service. We also put Avon and Tupperware books in the newspapers along our route. We only had one complaint about this.
We did so well with this that we were hired by the newspaper as a district manager and a telemarketer. The paper fired us the day they found out Suzanne was pregnant.
