Penny Profits

John Battelle on Bill Gross:

In Gross’s words: “One day I was at Savon [pronounced Save-on] on Ventura Boulevard and saw they had a special on candy, three for a quarter. So I bought five dollars worth — at eight and a third cents each — and brought them back to my apartment, where I sold them for nine cents. I saved the kids a penny, and they didn’t have to hop the wall. Everyone began buying from me.”
