Australia Freelance Market joke of the month: Trainer and shepherd
A freelance trainer offers his first open success seminar. Nobody comes at the scheduled starting time of the seminar. Half an hour later, a participant appears and sits in the first row.
The trainer explains to the participant that he is desperate and does not know what he should do now. The participant tells him that he is a shepherd and not a trainer and therefore has no advice for the trainer but says “As a shepherd if I only had one sheep instead of a herd, I would still look after and feed that one sheep.”
This inspires the trainer who then went on to present his complete half-day seminar plus a special session to the shepherd. In the end, he asks the shepherd how he thought the seminar went. The shepherd replied, "I cannot judge this because I am a shepherd and not a trainer. But if I only had one sheep to feed instead of a whole herd, I definitely would not give him all the food I have".
