The Big Business Way

The American businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village

when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were

several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the

quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican

replied only a little while.

The American then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish?

The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs. The

American then asked, but what do you do with the rest of your time?

The Mexican fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my

children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each

evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and

busy life, senor."

The American scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should

spend more time fishing and with the proceeds buy a bigger boat with the

proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats, eventually you

would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a

middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your

own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You

would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico

City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding

enterprise."

The Mexican fisherman asked, "But senor, how long will this all take?"

To which the American replied, "15-20 years."

But what then, senor?

The American laughed and said that's the best part. When the time is right

you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and

become very rich, you would make millions.

Millions, senor? Then what?

The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing

village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take

siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could

sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."
