Many of you may not know that before I was unemployed a homemaker, I worked for a bit in finance for Morgan Keegan in retirement accounts. I loved everything about finance. But I can’t blame this guy one bit for trading in analyzing accounts for freezing fruit.
When Steven was laid off from AIG, he turned lemons into, well, popsicles. The King of Pops sells gourmet popsicles from his cart in Atlanta. He purchases all his ingredients fresh from the farmer’s markets. He loves being a part of the local business, and providing the best product. Some of his favorite pops are mango habenero, mango chili, chocolate sea salt, and other unusual combinations. I can imagine it might be scary to leave a steady office job to sell frozen treats on the sidewalk, but Steven says he’s happier and plans to stick with his newfound vocation. He was recently featured on CNN so go on over and watch his video then see if you can track down the King of Pops.
With the heatwave hitting HOTlanta, you’ll be happier too, if you’re anywhere near his stand this summer, make sure you try a taste. To find out where he’ll be next, follow him on Twitter to see where he’ll be in Atlanta on any given day.
If you’re not in the Atlanta area, you’ll just have to try your hand at making your own frozen popsicles.
