Mexican fisherman

There’s a lovely story that’s helped inspire us to change our lifestyle.

An American businessman goes on holiday to Mexico. One afternoon, in a small fishing village, he starts talking to a fisherman.

He finds out that the fisherman spends his morning fishing, catching enough fish to feed his family, pay the rent and enjoy a few beers with his friends in the afternoon.

The businessman sees a great opportunity for the fisherman to get rich. The fisherman listens patiently as he outlines a business plan: Fish all day to double your income, after a year you can buy your own boat and employ your friends to fish for you then, over several years, you can build up a whole fishing fleet.

‘…and then what?’ says the fisherman.

‘…and then you’ll have earned enough money to retire, look after your family and spend your afternoons drinking beer with your friends…’
