Whoever thought you could make that much money that quickly. I liked this book even though it was a very short read. Joey Pow is my fave... and his grandma!!!

This boy's business started by a lawn mower. His money and business expanded after he met his neighbor, Arnold. Later a lot of uncertintinty came.
This is a great book. This is also a funny book. It shows us how his business and investments grow. Even his prizefighter won money for him. He was so lucky!!
