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
