I saw Dancing Dan holding a sign and dancing this morning at 8:30am. Yes, Christmas Eve. He was working. And guess what he was advertising? Himself. His sign said "Dancing Dan" and his phone number. Guess Dan is looking for work. On Christmas Eve.
Dan may be the hardest working guy in Sacramento. He's the best sign dancer on the planet and does his job with enthusiasm, joy, commitment, and integrity. If I ever had anything to sell, Dan would get my first advertising dollars.
Duran Central had an enlightening post this week about the recession in California and our need to be compassionate with those who are struggling to find work (the blog author and I had a bit of a back and forth in the comments). In order to get my compassion I want to see you working at least as hard as Dan.
