The little chicken goes around crying the sky is falling! They sky is falling!! The world is full of many little chickens, they are like alarm bells that goes off at the slightest provocation. The song on the lips of many folks today is recession and increase in exchange rate: bankers hum it, marketers sing it and the commuters dance to the rhythm while some smart folks are making the sales of their life. Recession is a game changer, for some people, it is a blessing while for some people it is a curse: what determines which one you get depends on how you position yourself.
1 Your Thinking
Yes the nation is in recession but it doesn’t mean you should be in recession too. “Don’t you know what affects the nation affects the citizens too?” who said the effect must by all means be negative?

At the age of 70 and right in the mid of the great depression one would expect him to be tired, exhausted and rocking at home to rest in peace but no he wasn’t. Instead of rocking in the chair he was experimenting to create his own special recipe for chicken processing. It was the worst of all time for nation around him; personal income was terrible, public funds was meager, national tax revenue dipped and international trade had plummeted by a whopping 50%.
Talk of bad, this was worse than bad, the stock market had crashed sinking many businesses in the wake of its collapse.

Americans everywhere were unemployed and everyone except one man was whining, because he was thinking and experimenting with his new recipe. Right in the middle of a full blown recession Colonel Sanders launched his enterprise selling chicken from his road side restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky. While many business had long been buried under the rubble’s of the depression Colonel Sanders’ KFC rose like the sun in its full strength at dawn of the day and took over. Soon the business was so large he couldn’t manage it by himself.
Today KFC chain’s has expanded to 18,875 outlets across 118 countries and territories and there is one of them in the city where I reside. The next time you drive into or drive by a KFC just look up and tell yourself “I have no excuse”. That franchise did not start when things were rosy and all good it started when things were bleak and awfully hopeless.
