Tracking Down The Chappy Gremlin

I haven't found that gremlin yet, but I will.

The Chappy is a 1976 Yamaha Chappy scooter.

As far as antiques go, it's in pretty good shape.

In fact, 2 years ago it was running when it was parked in the garage.

I probably should have taken a look at it sooner, but life happens.

Since it was running when it was parked, I figured all I'd have to do was bolt in a hot battery, fill it with gas, and fire it up.

That's not how it went.

I got the new battery and some gas in it, but for some reason, it's not getting power to all the places that need it.

Since I don't have a killer set of tools anymore, I improvised.

I took the light bulb out of the turn signal and a piece of wire from an old antenna and made a test light.

Using my crude but effective tool, I found that I had power to the ignition switch, and down into the harness.

That's where I got stumped.

I've got to do a little digging online to come up with more info.

If I didn’t know how to fix stuff like this, I wouldn’t even try.

I’d just take it down to the shop and let an expert handle it for me.

That’s exactly how I run my online marketing business.

Why try to figure it all out on your own if you don’t have to?

Would You Take Advice From A Sheep?

I saw him practicing out in the field.

I happened to be driving past this flock of sheep the other day.
Most of the sheep were in a large group.

Except for this one particular sheep.

He was standing off by himself, facing the empty field.  And he looked just like a pointer.

You know, those dogs that point towards where the game is on a hunting trip?

Anyway, my mind came up with a conversation going on between the pointer sheep and another random sheep in the flock.

“Frank…Frank! What the heck are you doing?”

“Oh, hey Bob. I'm practicing.”

“Practicing? Practicing what?”

“I'm practicing being a pointer. I'm gonna go on hunting trips and point at game for hunters.”

“Frank, we've been over this before. You're a sheep. You hang around in the field eating grass until someone needs a sweater. Then you get sheared. That's what we do, Frank.”

“Well, I'm tired of that, Bob. So I'm practicing, and someday I'm gonna be a pointer.”

“You're crazy, Frank.”

“Maybe, but just you wait and see. Someday I'm gonna be a pointer.”

Besides the fact that I have a weird mind and a crazy sense of humor, what does this little anecdote have to do with marketing?

Maybe nothing.

But if you're like most people, you've heard from at least one well-meaning friend or family member that you should just stay in the box and forget about reaching for your dreams.

I think there's a better way to be.

Be like Frank the sheep who's gonna be a pointer.

Reach for your dreams.
