My Profits Are Mushrooming

A small corner in your basement and a bit of fungus mold are all you need to start a mushroom farm and grow yourself a big-money business.

By Corwin Fred

BACK in 1929 I knew nothing about running a business. I did know, however, that I wanted one of my own, and I realized it had to be some enterprise I could start without much cash—and learn as I went along.

A few months later the profits had really started mushrooming from my own business—growing and selling mushrooms. As a mushroom farmer, I’ve been squeezed into some tight corners—but I’ve squeezed out again.

BIG FIRMS WILL PUT YOU IN BUSINESS (Nov, 1954)

BIG FIRMS WILL PUT YOU IN BUSINESS

Opportunities are unlimited for those willing to take the plunge.

By Lester David

WHEN young Louis Potomac said goodbye to the Navy in 1945 and headed for his native California, he and his wife set up housekeeping in a reconverted chicken coop. That’s how short of folding money was ex-sailor Potomac. But within a short time, he latched onto an idea which ultimately provided him with two big homes, two big Cadillacs and one great, big bank balance.

STRIKE IT RICH IN AFRICA (Nov, 1956)

The only paragraph where he mentions the actual people of Africa:

Racial tension is another vital consideration. Kenya, for instance, has its terrible Mau Maus, now on the wane but still something to reckon with. In the Union of South Africa, there is immense, unorganized resentment growing among the non-whites against the white man’s absolute, rigid supremacy. And a good place to stay away from is the shooting-war area of Algeria where the tide of hate runs high. But the timid and overly delicate have never thrived in the world’s frontiers.

STRIKE IT RICH IN AFRICA

Cast a glance at the Bright Continent—”incomparably the best source of potential wealth waiting development in the world.”

By Lester David

THE YOUNG man knelt on the dry ground of the Bomi Hills in Liberia, a look of intense concentration on his tanned face. Then he rose and slowly made his way back to headquarters, deep in his own thoughts.

Let a Franchise Put Money in Your Pocket (Dec, 1961)

Let a Franchise Put Money in Your Pocket

If you’re an inventor with a product to sell, or a man who wants his own business, franchising could be your way to wealth.

BY JAMES JOSEPH

WHETHER you’re an inventor who has brainstormed a marketable product, or a fellow yearning to plunge into a business of your own, experts nowadays are apt to prescribe the same means of success: franchising.

Franchising your brainstormed product or service and you lease its use—and marketing —to dozens, even hundreds, of in-business-for-themselves franchisees, dealers who pay you a use fee or royalty, or both, for the privilege of cashing in on your success-laden idea. (Franchise fees range from $10 to $100,000, with the average from $6000 to $10,000; royalties run from 1% to 10% of gross sales.)
