Lets see now, in the 80's, I was a convenience store manager. I made $300 per week. In the 90's I was a grocery store assistant manager. I made $360 per week. Then I went into the clerical field. I averaged about $450 per week. Now I am an entertainer. I make about $550 per week. I guess I could have skipped all of this and made $9,841,673,592 per week if I would have become an inventor just like the people who made the 'As Seen On TV Products'.
