The Fisherman

Once upon a time there was a fisherman who fished all day, cooked the fish and ate it with his family, played the guitar with his friends, and slept peacefully.

A Harvard MBA said to him, “You have a great business here. We can expand and sell fish into numerous markets, then franchise and manage a big business.”

The fisherman said, “Why would I want to do that?”

The MBA said, “So you can have an IPO in 10 years.”

The fisherman said, “Why would I want to do that?”

The Harvard MBA said, “So you would have millions of dollars. Imagine what you could do with that money!”

So the fisherman did imagine: he would fish all day, cook the fish and eat it with his family, play the guitar with his friends, and sleep peacefully.
