In Business For Yourself (Kokology #31)
The crowded walks at a summer fair are lined with street vendors hawking their wares from tents and stands. Table after table of wooden children’s toys, crafts, oil paintings,silver jewelry, and other treasures draw the eyes of passersby and make them pause a while to browse. Everything is made by hand, and no two items are alike, giving a sense of hope that a once-in-a-lifetime find waits unnoticed at the back of some counter display. The quality of the goods ranges from merely competent to exquisite craftsmanship equal to that found in the finest boutiques, and the vendors themselves, with their colorful personalities and appearances, add a dimension to the adventure that can’t be found in any window-shopping experience. The scene has been set; why now stop a while and see what’s up for sale?
1. You have opened a tabletop stand to sell your own original handmade jewelry. How many different types of accessories and bangles do you put on display?
2. A person walks up and looks over your table but after only a moment walks away without buying anything. What do you think to yourself?
3. Another potential customer comes up and seems extremely interested in one of your designs. In fact, you consider it the best piece in your collection. What type of salesmanship to you use to recommend it?
4. It’s time to close up shop for the day. How would you describe your sales?

In The Bag (Kokology #15)
All of us lose things. Sometimes we don’t even realize they’re lost. Think about the last time you lost something: That sense of frustration as you retraced your steps, scanning the ground, looking under furniture, and sifting through the trash.
Remember the feeling of desperation as you check your pockets for the fifth time just to make sure you didn’t miss it? Lost objects have a way of staying lost, only to turn up months after you’ve giving up looking and forgotten all about them. Finding things lost by other people works the same way. You don’t find dropped wallets in the street or lost purses on the train by consciously going out to look for them. If you find one, it’s usually just by stumbling across it while you’re doing something else.
You’re walking down the street when you come across a closed black briefcase. There’s no one else around, and when you open it to check for the owner’s name, out spills a bundle of cash. What is your first reaction to this sudden windfall?
1. “Hey this must be my lucky day!”
2. “Oh no, what am I’m going to do now?”
3. “I’d better take a night to think this over.”
4. “God must have wanted me to have this.”
