Ok guys….. The story below is not a new one… I have had a copy of this story in my wallet for over 15 years…. It was given to me by someone who took it out of he newspapers in the mid 60’s…. You can see from the attachment how worn, it’s become. I recently scanned a copy- in fear of losing it.

This story might be old- but the message will never be… Let me know what you think of it, share it with your friends…

There was a man who lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs.

He was hard of hearing so he had no radio

He had trouble with his eyes, so he read no newspapers.

BUT he sold good hot dogs!

He put up signs on the highway- telling people how good they were!

He stood on the side of the road and cried: “Buy a hot dog mister”!

And People Bought!!

He increased his meat and bun orders and bought a bigger stove to take care of his trade-

He finally got his son home from college to help him out

But then something happened.

His son said, “Father, haven’t you been listening to the radio?

Haven’t you been reading the newspapers?

There’s a big depression!

The European situation is terrible.

The domestic situation is worse!

Whereupon the father thought, “Well, my son’s been to college, he reads the papers and he listens to the radio, and he ought to know”

So the father cut down on his meat and bun orders- took down his advertising signs and no longer bothered to stand out on the highway to sell his hotdogs.

And his hot dog sales fell almost overnight!

“You’re right, son” the father said to the boy,

“We certainly are in the middle of a great Depression” !!!

WOW! … was that something!! The bottom line is- Ignore what everyone else says… You can profit greatly during tough economic times…

Remember Warren Buffet says: “Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful” Basically “Don’t follow the herd… LEAD the herd”
