Just read this anecdote and couldn’t help but smile…
There was this man who, many years ago, worked for a large business. That was his lifetime employment, but he wasn’t happy there. He wanted to go into business for himself. He saved his money and finally had enough that he could quit and start his own business.
About two years later, I was on vacation and was going through the town where his business was located. I stopped by for a visit. “Hey, John, I heard that the first year is the hardest for a new business.”
“Yeah, the first year was pretty rough, but we’re doing pretty good now. In fact, I’m getting to where I only have to work half a day.”
“Wow, that’s pretty nice. Maybe I should think about going into business for myself.”
“Yeah, and the nicest part of it is that it doesn’t matter which 12 hours you work.”
