Tom is an Entrepreneur.
He has found a need and has filled that need for a variable fee. His customers leave his place of business happier than when they came to it. And Tom fills his needs completely with what he has to sell. He has one employee, Bandit, who works for room and board.
Notice in the picture that Tom has his display furniture in the full view of the customer, but carefully conceals other distracting but nonetheless necessary presentation paraphernalia under the bushes behind him. There is a system to everything about Tom’s business. For one thing the presentation is kept as clean as possible. Tom presents only those things and views that will help the customer pay the most possible for what he gets. Which is the satisfaction of being kind and worthy of the praise of his family and acquaintances.
Tom speaks softly and politely and his employee, Bandit always helps in the presentation of the company’s business with a smile and a wagging tail.
Tom and Bandit work about six hours a day which usually provides their basic needs. They work two different places in a day. When the morning business slows down, Tom and Bandit hustle to their afternoon position at the exit driveway to the Safeway Grocery story. By the end of most days they have receipts of between $20 and $35. And they are satisfied that that is enough.
