This story comes by way of Michigan Capitol Confidential.
Nathan Duszynski of Holland, Michigan is a 13-year-old entrepreneur who used his savings from mowing lawns to buy a hot dog cart. His ultimate goal was to sell hot dogs to help his disabled parents.
His family got the blessing from the city but was shut down just ten minutes after he opened.
David Zoerman had a great Op-Ed in the Holland Sentinel.
I would like to say thanks to the city of Holland for shutting down Nathan Duszynski’s hot dog stand. It was defi nitely a great lesson for him on how the government bureaucracy works and why jobs are so hard for people to find.
I know a lot of people looking for work and having trouble finding it. Nathan knows why, and that is because of all the red tape and trouble it is to try to start your own business. We sure don’t want to hear a story 20 years from now about this extremely successful businessman who started with a hot dog stand at the age of 13 and then decided to start a restaurant and then decided to open a chain of restaurants.
