”I have had it; I am going to start my own business!” “
Enraged by her business-partner’s accusation that she was spending too much money, without caring about the company’s balances, she decided she was going to make enough money to turn him yellow with envy.
Actually, starting her own business wasn’t all the complicated. After the preliminary bureaucratic tasks, she even received a pretty nice financial cushion to start up her company. “Imagine what I could buy with all of this money!“
Smiling smugly, she ambled towards the market place and discovered a beautiful selection of diamond rings and golden necklaces. All her good intentions were easily tossed out. Still, she decided she was only going to buy these two items, when she found herself faced with a huge warehouse filled entirely with perfume bottles.
She was only going to take this one bottle, just this one. But she had made the bargain without the salesman, who promptly offered her 300 bottles for an amazingly great deal.
Her inner businesswoman was suddenly wide awake and started calculating – and she took the entire stock.
But her shopping spree had only just started: Several hundred bottles of shampoo, dozens of shoes and, remembering her kids, she ordered a load of around 1000 different toys and stuffed animals. Finally she reached the convertible-market. Hadn’t her partner always dreamed of those? Forgetting her hard feelings for him, she bought 20 cars, delivery straight into her storage.
Exhausted but content, she proudly surveyed her new belongings, congratulated herself on her remarkable taste, then called up her best friend, to tell her about her first day of self-employment. “Oh my,“ the experienced and successful business-woman exclaimed. “Now what you’re gonna do with all that stuff? Do you even have a store? One for cars, a drugstore, a toy store? Did you even consider hiring employees? How are you going to pay them?“
”But, but, I …,“ our rookie muttered sheepishly, „ I haven’t got any money left“
”You’re kidding me, right?“, her girlfriend yelled in disbelief. „ No money left… geeze! But, you know, don’t worry, I’ll help you. We’ll start over and this time, we’re gonna do it right … just click ‘start over tutorial’“
