When is a deal not a deal?

Dreamed that I started a school teaching something (“wisdom”) in an old hardware store in a rural setting.  The students that showed loved the classes, but few showed because the setting was so remote.

I had chosen the location because “I got a deal on it.”  But, depending on my goal, maybe a different (more expensive) location might have suited my needs better.  If one is at least “breaking even,” then it depends upon one’s goals which choices are made, I suppose.

Reminds me of a special I saw on kites and kite building in which one kite builder addressed the issue of the business.  He explained that his hobby business broke even each year, and that meant either one of two things: (1) he had a hobby that paid for itself, or (2) he had a business that did not make a profit.

  1. emm, it could be that you are settling for something because it’s practical or available, although it is not what you really want?

    • That’s a good point. I was looking at it from a slightly different viewpoint. I was literally thinking in terms of a business and business opportunity. But, maybe it is something else altogether.
