Leap of Faith
I saw a guy on the news tonight named Steve Carse. Steve used to work for the now infamous AIG. He was a product analyst and said that he spent his days looking at spreadsheets. In the AIG bloodbath Steve lost his job. He said that he thought about it and decided that he did not want to look for another job in the corporate sector. Instead he decided to start his own business selling gourmet popsicles.
He sells his popsicles out of a cart on a street corner in Atlanta. He sells such flavors as pineapple-blood orange, mango-habenero, tangerine-rosemary, chocolate-sea salt and mango-chili. The pops are such a big hit that a store is soon to follow. One man interviewed at the cart said that he liked Steve’s story and always tries to support start-up businesses. Steve says that he is truly happy creating new flavors and making the pops from scratch.
Food for thought! (ok I couldn’t resist)
