By | Doug Constable | No Comments

The subject explained in the news at the moment is Barnaby Joyce and his dual citizenship. Now I know as an Australian citizen, that I would love to have the best people running our country – the people that make the decisions based on what is good for our country and the citizens of our country.

Presenter Doug Constable on One Negative Comment Needs Seven Positives To Balance

By | Doug Constable | No Comments

One negative comment needs seven positive comments just to balance it out, in your own mind and how you feel about yourself. This is something that i learnt years ago. And what I find happens is, quite often, when people find themselves in debt or not quite able to make ends meet, they start talking about failure, of not earning enough money, those sorts of negative comments.

Presenter Doug Constable on The Hot Dog Story

By | Doug Constable | No Comments

So the hot dog story. I would have heard this 30-40 years ago. And It’s something I try to remember. It’s a humorous story but it’s got a very good message to it. And it relates back to after the war and of course there are a number of settlers that came to America of all different ethnic backgrounds and came and settled in America. And one of those couples that came to America and virtually had nothing. They settled near a major road. And there was this old store that had been closed down and all they could afford was to rent the couple of rooms that were above it. And so they rented these rooms and they were thinking what are we going to do for a living and the wife went out and did some did some housework and the husband did a bit of labouring and then they thought about it for a little while and the husband was renowned for making beautiful hot dogs, lovely hot dogs, you know with the mustard and those hot dogs that have got the hole in the middle and you heat the roll up and you put the hot dog down the middle of it with the sauce, fresh bread. They were absolutely magnificent hot dogs. So they started doing that and they thought well put a little stand at the front and sell these hot dogs to the cars going past. And they put a little stand at the front and then they started making Cordial to go with the hot dogs and then they started selling soft drinks and the business got bigger and bigger and bigger and ultimately they went to the landlord and said, “Could we rent the downstairs?” And they actually opened a hot dog shop, here on the high side of the road.

How Pygmies Catch Alligators

By | Doug Constable | No Comments


One of the things to think about is when you’re being confronted by a situation whether it be: an angry creditors, someone after you for money or someone that you disagreeing with, is what approach you are going to take. And, You can either take the oaktree approach where you stand up and you just are going to withhold it and not bend and not flex or you can take the palm tree approach where you bend and go with the wind and just go backwards and forwards and rock until the storm passes.

Reputation ~ They are Seeing You Through Their Eyes, Their Experiences

By | Doug Constable | No Comments


One of things I find is that a lot of people concern themselves the about their reputation. Now to me reputation is how other people see you. But they are seeing you through their eyes and their experiences. So what happens is if you get pulled over by the police for speeding their immediate thing is to react how other people who have been pulled over have acted and some of them have been not so nice people, so the police are on guard.

Calligraphy $13 or $25 Per Hour

One of the things I get asked quite often is: what are the trends and what are of some of things that I see with companies going into liquidation and the reason behind it. Over the years I have done quite a lot of liquidations associated with builders. One of the things I see time and time again is that with a small builder, they tend to try and compete on price thinking that that’s the issue. And of course when they compete on price they haven’t got the money to do the job because they have got a cut the dollars and cut the corners so they make the living and it reminds me of the time when with my first wife.
