Do you remember the childhood fable, The Three Little Pigs? Their mother sends them out into the world to “seek” their fortune.
Until recently, I never realized they were entrepreneurs like us, but they are!
You know the story – the first pig builds a house made of straw.
“Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”
“No, no, no. Not by the hair on my chinny, chin-chin.”
“Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in.”
The big, bad wolf destroys the straw house. Failure!
The second little pig builds his house from sticks and the big, bad wolf demolishes that one, too. Double failure!
Both pigs escape to their third brother’s house, who built his home out of bricks. Success!
It’s here, safe at last in the third brother’s home, that the three little pigs have a chance to show of their entrepreneurship and wisdom.
