Team 6!   Thats the name of our learning group and it sounds very boring and PC, and to the non enthusiast it might well be, but the info sent below from Axle F made me smile so I thought it might make others smile and think about things too.

Recession Story – HotDog Seller
This Story is about a man who once upon a time was selling Hotdogs by the roadside.  He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers. he was hard of hearing, so he never listened to the radio, his eyes were weak, so he never watched television.  But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hotdogs.

He was smart enough to offer some attractive schemes to increase his sales and his sales and profit went up. He ordered more and more raw material and buns and used to sell more and recruited a few more supporting staff to serve more customers – he started offering home deliveries and eventually he got himself a bigger and better stove.

As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from College, joined his father. Then something strange happened.
The son asked, “Dad, aren’t you aware of the great recession that is coming our way?” the father replied, “no, but tell me about it,” the son said, “the international situation is terrible. and the domestic situation is even worse so we should be prepared for the coming bad times.”

The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers, listened to the radio and watched TV he ought to know and his advice should not be taken lightly so the next day onwards, the father cut down his raw material order and buns, took down the colourful signboard, removed all the special schemes he was offering to the customers and was no longer as enthusiastic…

He reduced his staff strength by giving layoffs. Very soon, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hotdog stand and his sales started coming down rapidly, same as the profit.

The father said to his son, “Son, you were right,” “we are in the middle of a recession and crisis. I am glad you warned me ahead of time.”

Moral of The Story: It’s all in your MIND! And we actually FUEL this recession much more than we think we do!!

Catch you Sunday…
