TEXT OF STORY

Kai Ryssdal: Remember summer vacations at the beach, maybe hanging out on the boardwalk? And those T-shirts your parents bought you? The one with goofy sayings on ’em or cats outlined in glitter? Well, that brings us to today’s next installment of Hot Jobs.

The retail business can be tough. But it’s much easier to take when you’re selling T-shirts at the beach, and you’re only doing it three months out of the year. Like this entrepreneurial couple in Ocean City, Maryland. Elizabeth Wynne Johnson helped us out with that report.
