This professional mermaid is riding a wave of profits

Linden Wolbert is a professional mermaid.

For the past decade, she has turned her love of the ocean into a growing fortune. She spent $25,000 on her first custom tail and the rest is history. She now charges $6,000 for personal appearances and she has created a product sold by Body Glove that will bring in $4.5 million in sales this year.
