I don’t mind being regulated. I’ve been a New york city property owner and building manager, I have lived with the stupidity of rent regulation. I’ve succeeded and prospered in spite of it. What i want to see is smart regulation. Any regulation or law that requires thousands of pages to explain its meaning becomes meaningless. Simplicity is the key to enforcement.

As is so common these days, a lack of funding and political will is the root of the problem. (Mark Bitterman, NY Times).

Even though you may not want your very own snow cone empire, the point above can apply in a different way. This business model allows you to operate it in addition to your regular job.

My most recent snow cone stand had high school kids work during the day and weekends, and i split the profits with a friend for him to make ice and syrup, pay the rent and payroll, and make deposits. I was running this business putting in less than 5 hours per week.
