GET RICH QUICK: Become an Etch-A-Sketch Artist!
You can buy a Classic Etch-A-Sketch for $14.95 (cheaper in quantity), draw some stuff on it, turn around and sell it for $5000 - $8000 a pop. It's that easy! Even if you only do one picture a day at $5000 per, that's $1,825,000 per year. (Remember, students, to subtract your cost of goods to determine your gross profit.) Subtract $5456.75 for the purchase of 365 Etch-A-Sketches, and you walk away with a profit of $1,819,543.30! That doesn't even take into account appearance fees and celebrity endorsements which can be exorbitant. Michael Jordan made something like $30 Million a year in celebrity endorsements, and he's all thumbs with an Etch-A-Sketch!
Sound too good to be true? George Vlosic III makes a tidy living as a full-time Etch-A-Sketch artist. And he gets to hobnob with celebrities from Cal Ripkin to the Beatles and even Elvis! Check out his gallery at ETCHED IN TIME. How hard can that be?
