Charles, a Wall Street Investment Banker on a long awaited and much
needed vacation, was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village. A
small boat with just one fisherman docked. In the small boat were
several large yellowfin tuna. Charles 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.

Charles 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.

Charles 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, senior."

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 senior, how long will this all take?"

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

But what then, senior?

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, senior? 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."
