How did you make your money?
Posted by Webmaster (+10013) 11 years ago
A young man asked an older rich man how he made his money.

The old guy fingered his sweater and said, "Well, son, it was 1934 and in the depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last dime.

"I invested that dime in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for fifteen cents.

"The next morning, I invested those fifteen cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them for 30 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.59."

"And that's how you built an empire?" the boy asked.

"Heavens, no!" the man replied. "Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."

See, there is a benefit to being an apple polisher, at least if you have a rich father-in-law.

The obvious take-away here, is that God rewards hard work.

A guy walks into his bedroom to find his wife packing her suitcase. He asked her "what are you doing" and she replies "I just found out that I can make $200/night in Las Vegas doing what I give you for free".

The man walks into the closet and gets his suitcase. "What are you doing" the wife asked? The man replies "I am going to Vegas with you'. "Why" asked his wife. "Because I want to see how you are going to live on $200/year".
