Well-Known Panhandler Was Keeping A Big Secret - Truth Revealed (Photos)

There are poor people in desperate situations who might panhandle as a last resort, but not all pan handlers are out begging for money because of circumstance. Some are there by choice.

Jesse Wellman, 26, makes a living panhandling in in Houston, Texas. According to Wellman, it's not because he can't work. It's because he doesn't like keeping a regular job. He gets bored too easily.

Wellman makes more money panhandling than he did in his last full-time job. He studies and uses marketing strategies to increase his revenue. He's figured out how to apply those business tips to panhandling.

The expert beggar has learned to make signage that's clear and bold. He sometimes poses as a struggling father to get sympathy. He feels he provides a service. He says it makes people feel good to give.

"Totally their choice, not forcing them, just kindly asking and if they choose to give - then you've made the sale."

He's using the money people give him to pay down his student loan debt and pay off his car. To keep overhead low, he not only works out of his car, but sleeps in it.

Wellman says 'I'm definitely selling something' when he panhandles and thinks these skills will translate to a business in the future. People are obviously buying it.
