Many years ago, John worked for a large business. It was his lifetime employment, but he wasn't happy there. He wanted to go in business for himself. He saved his money and finally had enough so that he could quit and start his own business.
About two years later, I was on vacation and was going through the town where John's 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 are 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 twelve hours you work."
