Maximum Creativity

Anita started the Body Shop to make the 300 Pounds per week she needed to support herself and her two children.The early days of the business was plainly about survival.In fact her survival instinct  led to many of the innovations that would later become company trademarks.

For instance, favouring recycling came from Anita’s inability to afford more than 700 empty bottles.

When she began,Anita had only a few products.So she decided to have five sizes of everything.That way when a person entered the small 370 square foot shop, this give the illusion that the store carried over 120 products.

The green paint which is the trademark of her stores was chosen because it was the only colour that would hide the mould on all the damp patches on her shop walls.

Please Help Me Understand Gold

I graduated in 2000.In the same year I made my first purchase of  gold.Since then I’ve been watching the price of gold.The first thing to attract my attention was the relentless upward movement in the price show in the graph below:                                                                                                                                                                    

Logic suggested that what goes up in price must come down.So I tried looking for the historic prices of gold to try to see if there was a cycle . Read more of this post
