    The American investment banker was at the pier of a small coast Mexican village when a small boat with just

 one fisherman docked. Inside the boat were several large yellow fin 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 Mexccan 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."

  The American scoffed, " I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. you should speand more time fishing and

with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat, with the profits from the bigger boat you could buy several  boats, e

ventually 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, the LA and

eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise."

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

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

    "But what then?"

     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.... 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."
