The Hot-Dog Solution

A few weeks ago I wrote about Anita Foss and her recommendation that we spend time in prayer about our economy (The Economy – What Would Zig Do?).  One of our readers, Deepak from Florida, took that idea one step further.  For him the answer, and the people’s need, was a hot dog.

Question – What need do you see right outside your window right now that you can fulfill?  The real economy you have to control is the one between your ears.  Take action and help a fellow man, and see how their personal economy improves, as well as THE ECONOMY BETWEEN YOUR EARS!

Here is what Deepak said:


very good idea . i read your article on ZIGZIGLAR newsletter .

i have a small convenience store in very poor neighborhood in florida . every lastfriday of the month a church group comes and gives away groceries and food to all the people around and prey in my parking lot . i let them use my parking lot to do all this activity whenever they want , as i have lot of space .
after reading your and ANITO FOS ,s advice to do something for the economy or for the other people . i have decided to give free hotdogs to all the poor people who come to attend the church meeting . although i am not very rich but blessed enough that i can afford to do this little thing for people .
so thank you very much for planting seed in my mind to do something for others .
iam great fan of your dad ZIG and my son reads all your bogs .

    Wow! Free hotdogs – I love it. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if each of us could come up with our own “hotdog”? You know, it doesn’t have to be anything spectacular. Hmmm, I’m going to give this some thought and see how I can give back in this time of struggle. Anybody got some good ideas out there?

    We have a family business, we have no work in December but made the decision to keep our employees through the holiday season, it was our part to help in our own backyard (we’re in Michigan in the automotive related industry). I read this article on the Hot Dogs and it connects me to a bigger, more noble experience that we can be a part of it as individuals. We can change the world by doing something for someone that they can never repay us back for.
