THE 21ST CENTURY IS NOT TURNING OUT AS I HAD ANTICIPATED: It’s a bug’s life — until the lice nitpickers arrive. “Last year, the co-founders earned a $125,000 profit on nearly $700,000 in revenue. That’s a lot of bug removal. They pay themselves about $50,000 each, and roll the $125,000 in profit back into the business. Not bad for picking bugs off children’s heads. And that’s just the beginning. Eckert and Fields have ambitions to go national. They have four franchises throughout the East Coast.”
