I came out one morning to set up my stand and 3 houses down little Tommy had his own Koolaid stand. And it loomed ominous for the stand had been purchased and shipped in via mail order. It was perfect in every way with decorations, sign, and graphics.

I stood in front of it in awe but also fear. My first reaction was, "You can't build your own stand? You have to have your mommy buy you one?" But this rich kid had no qualms about accepting money from mommy and just grinned at me. "You will see that my stand is better than yours." "Hmph" I said more as an inner thought than a reply and went back to staff my own store.

Within the hour all the neighbor kids were pouring out of their houses to play on this delightful sunny summer school free day. I prepared my table as I always had for the previous week with cups, pitcher, and my small box to take the change.

By habit many came running up to my stand and held over their pennies. I remember the first one. Her hand was holding out the pennies and I was pouring the first cup. But she was not looking at me. She was looking down the street at Tommy.

Tommy.

Tommy thank you for my first really big lesson in business.

Tommy took it all.

My first customer, (almost), of the day snapped her hands shut and went running down the street toward Tommy's stand squealing. The others followed.

"Why Tommy wherever did you get this stand!" they all gushed as they handed over their pennies to him.

I could not believe it. I thought I had a loyal customer base but one silly thing such as a better looking stand and they all flew.

Why would a stand that looked better make any difference? It was the same Koolaid. The same.

I thought perhaps they would be back later that day but no such luck. I even started shouting out that I was lowering my prices. But they could not break from the allure of that wonderful wonderful factory manufactured mommy's money little rich boy's Koolaid stand.

I was devastated. I had worked hard to build my own koolaid stand but it was now useless. I went to the garage and got out a sledge hammer. I returned and worked out my anger by smashing my stand to it's original and even smaller pieces.

And I quit.

That night before I went to sleep I thought about the day's events. And the bug was still there biting me. I wanted to sell. I wanted to earn money. I wanted to be the one everyone came to for their Koolaid.

And I fell asleep.

I did not realize what was happening in my head that night. It would take another 20 years for me to understand or even suspect the process. But yet it happens. And it happens for everyone.
