- with the usual suspects (my gang of neighbourhood kids), I set up a court/trial system to deal with conflicts. Yes, I was the judge.
- to make $, I forgoed the Lemonade stand idea, and saw these girls making threaded bracelets. I set up a bracelet-making competition, with the winner being the one who made the most (and best) bracelets. They won all my Halloween candies (the leftover cheap-ass lollipops that I never ate). And, as soon as school ended for the summer, there I was, with a bracelet stand. One of the girls was so pissed when she saw I was selling 'their' bracelets, that she demanded I give them back. I got her to the point of so much frustration, and that's when I slipped in, "I don't think you really want your bracelets back enough...if you did, you'd buy them back" She did. All of it. Fastest money-making scheme of mine to boom, to date.
