This was an unexpected lesson in business

Michelle Dale - Monday, October 23, 2017



I have a story to share today, it involves my husband and potatoes, but it's really related to your business ;-)

A little while ago I was cooking, and I had a potato that had been at the back of the potato basket for a while, it was old, not edible, had sprouted and I was about to throw it away.

My husband said, "don't do that, I'll cut the top off and see if we can grow it" - I asked if that would work, and really we had no idea... I Googled it and there was nothing I could find on lobbing the end off a potato and sticking it in a planter, but it was an experiment!

A few months pass and we see the planter is absolutely full of greenery, and what looks like it could be the end of a potato (not the one we planted though) - and this seemed to spread.

Then one day, we pulled back the earth and this planter was full of potatoes - beautiful looking sweet potatoes, we dug them out and there were about 15 or so.

The lesson to me in this, is that no matter how small, or 'incorrect' something looks, it could have huge potential to become something so much more - don't automatically discard it because you can't see past what it is right now.

The original potato we planted was nowhere to be found, but the legacy it left behind was amazing ;-)

Start from where you are right now, it doesn't matter where that may be, it may take a little time, but with care and attention you'll GROW, it'll be worth the wait.

Here's to 'abundance' and sweet potato soup ;-)
