A Business Opportunity – a micro story

A Business Opportunity


Brighton Pavilion was built and Queen Victoria went to visit. She stopped overnight at The George Hotel. The owner rubbed his hands with glee. Frequent visits to Brighton meant regular overnight stays at his hotel.

He immediately went and bought all the flowers on the market. He painted and decorated the rooms within an inch of their lives, spending every penny he had. If the Queen was going to stay here on a regular basis, the royal set would flock here too.

Only for the Queen to hate the Pavilion and vow never to go back.
