While hanging with my uncle in Israel he told me a great story that relates to all entrepreneurs.
One day a man was enjoying fishing when someone told him to buy another fishing pole so he could catch more fish. Now that he could catch twice as much he took the extra fish, sold them to the store and bought more poles. He kept doing this until he bought a boat. Then with the boat he went out to sea and caught even more fish, sold to store, made even more money. He then created a company, adding more boats, more fish and more money…
One day he sold his fishing empire to someone and made a lot of money. Afterwards, he went back to the dock and kept fishing with just his one pole…
Morale of the story:
1- Fishing is fun.
2- Jews have cool stories
3- If you know what you want to do why waste time with other things.
