A young man once asked a rich older man how he earned all his money. The old man smoothed his tailored jacket and said,

“Well, young man, it was fifty years ago, in the depths of the Great Depression. I was down to the last dollar. So I took that dollar and I went and bought an apple. I spent the whole day shining that apple until it gleamed like the sun, then I took that apple to the market and sold it for two dollars.”

The old man cleared his throat and continued,

“The next day I took those two dollars and bought two more apples. I shined those apples all day and night until they were perfect. Then I sold them at the market for four dollars the next day. I worked like this for a month and at the end of the month, I’d amassed myself a fortune. I ‘d never been so proud of myself in my life. Then my wife’s father died and left us three million dollars.”
