Beldon Nosely Incorporated

Just because a kid isn't a good student, doesn't mean he can't make it as an entrepreneur.

My husband reminded me of one such student I taught years ago, Beldon Nosely. Beldon used to get dressed up as a long shore man and go down to the docks at night to unload the ships. Every 5th box or so would end up in his friend's car. The day after this adventure he would come to school selling his take from the night before, sometimes radios, gloves, sweaters, etc. My favorite was watch day. He would just roll up his sleeve and offer everyone around the time. I wonder whatever happened to him. He is either a millionaire or in jail or maybe even underground. I'm hoping for the millionaire thing.
