Sales Technique Article - Full Circle, A Business Opportunity
A rich business man was on holiday on a beautiful island watching the fishing boats coming and going with their catch and nets. One day he was down at the port and saw this old man bringing in his daily catch, repairing his nets and getting his boat ready for the following day's fishing.
The business man feeling a bit generous with his time asked the fisherman "Why don't you go out now, before the day is out and catch more fish, after all there is plenty of daylight left you could easily catch more fish before the day is out and night falls?"
The fisherman gave the businessman a curious look and said "why would I want to do that?"
"Well", said the businessman "that way you would make more money!"
The fisherman stared at the businessman and said "and why would I want money?"
The business man (realising he was dealing with a simple soul) said "if you fish twice as much then you make twice as much money, then after a while you have enough money to buy a second boat then with a second boat you could catch twice as much again and eventually you would be like me, a rich business man, that's why!"
"Oh!" said the fisherman, "then what would I do?"
The business man looked at the fisherman and smiled the smile that read this is why I am rich and you aren't "if you are rich enough then you don't need to work anymore, you have enough free time you can pursue your hobbies and generally enjoy life knowing others are working harder than you, that's why! Tell me friend, what hobbies do you wish you had time to indulge in?"
The fisherman replied "Fishing!"
