What's the most unusual way you've ever made a living? Or tried to.
I'm considering collecting whale vomit on beaches and selling it for £100 per gram to perfume companies (the stuff is called ambergris and it's worth a fortune) I'm also using a metal detector to find coins/gold bullion and I'm ordering 6 tarantulas to breed them. How about you?

My first "job" was this shitty sales pyramid scheme that was purely commission, had to go door to door selling knives.

As a child I literally sold sea shells by the sea shore at venice beach in Cali for 25 cents a pop. I made about $20 a day for the one week I did it.

Additional business ventures as a child included selling finger paintings, flipping yugioh cards and making my own tcg out of index cards, trading them for ygo cards and then reselling the ygo cards to get more index cards to generate even more profits.

Not all that out there, but when I was a kid I made the kid equivalent of a fortune mowing lawns for old ladies in the summer. All word of mouth, took a few hours a day, and costs were basically nothing. This was back when gas was 80 fucking cents.

I used the family riding mower. In exchange for using this equipment I was required to mow several lawns of family and friends for free. Worked out pretty well. I made like 300 bucks a week all summer, which is alot for a 13 year old.

Work in finance now as a grown up and I frequently wish my job was as chilled out as mowing lawns

It's a reenactment of one panel of the forgettable manga known as "Watamote".
The protagonist freaks out for some reason and tears up the panties that her friend had helped her buy.

Me and a friend once collected a bucket of caterpillars (LOTS) and got the notion that someone would buy them.
We actually went door to door.
When we were trying to make a sale we (cant remember who) dropped the bucket and sent catepillars everywhere including in their house. They werent pleased

After I left the Army I worked as a minder for a very high end escort, which was very strange. I had a day job, too, but I essentially got paid £500 a night two nights a week to sit behind a false wall and read the paper. The only time she ever rang the alarm or asked for help was when one of them had a heart attack.

We would have sex beforehand and sometimes a man asked to watch us have sex. It was all very film noir.

I have 1000 small cactus plants that I bought for 2000 euro's. I have these in a separate room with a window roof. I grow these for 10 years and then they are worth 50$ a piece. That's a 48000$ profit euro in 10 years.
