Business: Florida Trophy Gators
Bunny and Rick Lightsey never thought they would live a life where they weren’t struggling to pay the bills. Bunny quips that she married Rick for his money and was going to stay with him until he got some. After 42 years of marriage, he finally did. Combining Rick’s hobby of trapping and stuffing alligators with Bunny’s bank teller money sense, these Okeechobee, Florida natives opened Florida Trophy Gators in 2005. Today, they are taking in over $1.3 million a year and are living a debt free life they had never previously thought possible.
