YEP

YEP stands for Young Entrepreneur Program. It is a program where school children are given the opportunity to run and manage their own business. These children form a company. They have a CEO, CFO, Marketing Director, HR Director and other important positions. They will have weekly meeting, learned how to write minutes, learned about coming with a product and marketing it, learn about competition, etc. They have guidance from working adult. My company participated in such a program.

Last week a few students from one school came into the office accompanied by their "mentor", an employee of the company I am working in. The mentor introduced the student and told us that they have this particular product to sell. The product is some sort of Post-It Notes packaged in a handmade box with nice ribbons and wrapping papers. The box were nicely done. Very good quality.. something one would find in a handicraft shop. Their so called marketing strategy is to buy this and give it to the secretary since last week was a Secretary Week. I have no secretary nor assistant so the thing is really useless for me. Not only that, the price for the product is a cut-throat RM14!

The students were extremely shy. They dare not walk around to show us their stuff nor do they want to pitch the product. I can feel for them. I used to be a very shy student myself and this particular girl was like so helpless.

Anyway, long story short, I got suckered.

So what am I going to do with an extremely expensive Post-It notes in a nice heart-shaped box? I am thinking of perhaps you know, somehow, giving it to Anne but giving just a Post-It notes sounded lame. What should I write in there? Poetry? Love Songs? What?

Any suggestions? Dr Love?

I think I have too much time... :D

Oh, BTW, my Chemistry post has received lots of comments lately. It's worth checking out.

I suggest that you put in 'puisi-puisi' (poetries) from this month onwards for everyday in the cute box. Each day put your loving thoughts (trembling!!) so that each day she can peel the pad for surprises. What say you! Actions speaks louder than words! So start writting!
