A story is told of a wanna-be farmer who begged & cajoled, on a daily basis, an experienced farmer to show him the trade. Acquiescing, the experienced farmer began digging the earth with his spade.

“What are you doing to the earth?” screamed the trainee in shock.

“Please don’t ask any questions and you shall see,” answered the farmer.


Next the farmer put some seeds into the ground and watered them.


“Why are you ruining the seeds with water?” screamed the trainee in shock.

“Please don’t ask any questions and you shall see,” answered the farmer.


Next, when the wheat stalks grew, the farmer chopped them down, removed the wheat kernels and ground them up into flour.


“Why are you destroying the beautiful plants?” screamed the trainee in shock.

“Please don’t ask any questions and you shall see,” answered the farmer.


Next, the farmer kneaded the flour into dough and put it in the oven.


Again the trainee screamed in shock and again the farmer answered the same.


Upon completion of the baking, when the trainee smelled the fresh delicious aroma of the bread, did he finally understand each step of the process.


Many individuals fresh out of college have idealistic dreams. They want to accomplish a certain task and feel they are ready to do so. Many times they are. Most of the time they are not.


Experience teaches more than the classroom can ever teach.

Experience comes with success and failures which cannot be learned from a textbook.

Experience comes with learning how to work with others which cannot be learned from a textbook.

Experience comes with witnessing, with one’s own eyes, the pleasure they can cause someone else which cannot be learned from a textbook.

Experience comes with witnessing, with one’s own eyes, the pain they can cause someone else which cannot be learned from a textbook.

Experience comes with dealing with problems with cannot be learned from a textbook.


Owning your own business is definitely worth it.


Not necessarily, however, straight out of college.


Work for another.

Get experience.


Then open a small business using your amassed experience and watch it, with G-d’s help, take off.
