David Holston is an 18-year-old entrepreneur from Idaho who started a landscaping business in Coeur d’Alene last spring. He recently made a good amount of money in 4 days, more in than many make in a year, from plowing snow. The proactive teen decided to travel to Seattle with his truck and a plow right after the city got hit with historic levels of snow – up to 10 inches in some parts.
Holston made a total of $35,000 in four days work and said he plans to give $7,000 of that “to God” through his local church and other Christian organizations.
“I plan on tithing 20 percent to advance the kingdom of God, buy mowers for this year’s mowing season, and save the rest for buying my first house debt free!” Holston said in an interview. “I credit all of my success to my savior Jesus Christ who died on a cross to forgive my sins and three days later rose from the dead.”
He credits his work ethic to a Bible verse from the gospels, Luke 12:31.
“But seek first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you.”
