It’s been a couple of days since I posted a post relating to our My Little Devotional series. I’m not sure how many people read those posts, but I do hope that when (and if) you do, you find inspiration within them. After all, that’s what SnK is supposed to be. It’s suppose to have the vision of Aspiring. Creating. Inspiring. (That’s the slogan of SnK, FYI: Aspire. Create. Inspire.)
Anyways, here’s another My Little Devotional post.
Wally started baking chocolate chip cookies for his friends in 1970, using a recipe and procedure he had received from his Aunt Della. For five years he gave away every batch he made, even though people often told him that his cookies were so good that he should go into business and sell them. Wally, however, had other ideas. He was intent on being a big-time show-business manager.
Then one day a friend, B.J. Gilmore, said to him that she had a friend who could put up the money for a cookie-making business. Her friend never made the investment, but Wally got some of his friends–including Jeff Wall, Helen Reddy and Marvin Gaye–to put up some money. And Wally was off and running.
Originally, he intended to open up only one shop on Sunset Boulevard, just enough to ‘make a living’. After all, his was the only shop in the world dedicated only to the sale of chocolate chip cookies. But business grew virtually overnight. Wally’s ‘Famous Amos Chocolate Chip’ cookies were soon distributed worldwide. Wally himself became a spokesman for other products, from eggs to airlines to a telephone company. While he once dreamed of managing ‘stars’, he now is one in his own right!
