Katie Price: 'I love the thrill of making money'

By
Katie Price has revealed that she has always enjoyed taking part in business projects.

The model explained that from a young age she has come up with ideas to make a profit.

"My mum's friend gave me the Kylie song 'Tears on My Pillow' for my 12th birthday and I also got a tape recorder so I used it to record that song and others off the radio and sell them for £1," she told The Sun.

"I've always loved the thrill of making money."

She continued: "I was very shrewd from a young age. I remember going to a pet shop with my mum aged about nine and there was a black rabbit that I desperately wanted but she said, 'No'.

"I thought to myself, 'I'm going to have that rabbit', and when we got home I found mum's cheque book and wrote out and signed one in her name for the price of the rabbit.

"I posted it off to the pet shop and they phoned back a few days later and asked to check some details with my mum. I was grounded for a week."

Price stated that her working class family upbringing made her willing to work hard to get success.

"My family had to work to survive and we were all very enterprising. I remember when it was windy my dad would send my brother and me out putting leaflets through doors, asking people if they wanted their fences mending."

She added that she hopes to continue selling products as she gets older, saying: "I'm a proper Del Boy, me. I did a nail technician course recently and I'm already thinking about my own range of nail polishes.

"When I'm older, I'll be launching a range of pink mobility scooters and crystal-encrusted Zimmer frames.

"Sometimes I look round my home and think, 'How on earth did I get here?' I'm proud of my business empire but most of all I'm proud of the fact that no-one would ever have believed I could do it."

Katie Price recently earned a qualification as an Eyelash Artiste.
