Business Recipe For Disaster

Marc Hogan was bet £1 that he couldn’t become a stand up comic in less than 12 months and perform a one man comedy show at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival for 21 nights. He won the bet!

Business Recipe for Disaster

  1. Take one large fat cat.
  2. Add a soupcon of smugness.
  3. Fillet profitable elements of business and set aside.
  4. Over marinate in EU regulations.
  5. Place a large under (paid) seasoned work force in pressure cooker.
  6. Ignore correct cooking instructions and set oven to ‘get rich quick’.
  7. Let investors seethe gently over a low interest rate.
  8. Grate workforce by paying large bonus to management team.

  9. Simmer nerves and reduce tax payment.
  10. Wait for meal to boil over and serve to an unsuspecting public who will pick up the bill
