Golden Egg_favicon_originalSo, you are curious about our golden egg, appearing in our footer and as our favicon (that cute little image that shows on the tab next to our name when you browse our site).

Well, we are sure that you are familiar with Aesop’s fable, “The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs”. If you are unfamiliar, or want a refresher, you can read it below. Just click on the title:

There was once a man who had a marvelous goose that laid golden eggs. Each and every day, without fail, the goose laid an egg that was made of solid gold. You would think the owner of the goose would consider himself very lucky, but one golden egg each day was not enough to satisfy the man. He wanted to have even more gold without waiting for the eggs! “If the goose is able to lay these golden eggs,” he said, “then the inside of the goose is probably filled with gold. I will cut open the goose and get all the gold at once!”

The greedy man then grabbed an axe and cut the goose in half. Much to his surprise, the goose was just like any other goose inside; there was no gold. “Woe is me!” the man exclaimed. “Instead of being satisfied with my good fortune, I have now lost everything.”

The moral of the story, of course, is that you should not be greedy.

At Agapi Marketing, we are grateful for the many good things that come our way and for the good people that we are fortunate to work with and help every day. The appearance of the golden egg is our reminder to always be grateful, to stay focused and not let money alone dictate our choices.

We hope that you will take this to heart, and remember our story whenever you see a golden egg, whether on our site or anywhere else.

And – thanks for your interest in our little story!
