The Boy and the Fishmonger An Inspirational Story SS1 Slide Show Podcast

As told to Nathan Zhang By the Tree of Life (in a dream of course...)

Once upon a time in the slums... There lived a boy and a fishmonger. They were neighbors. The boy's father was a paper-collector. The fishmonger and the father were friends. The fishmonger lived old and alone. Thus the fishmonger was like an uncle to the boy.

There lived a boy and a fishmonger.

They were neighbors.

The boy's father was a paper-collector.

The fishmonger and the father were friends.

The fishmonger lived old and alone.

Thus the fishmonger was like an uncle to the boy.

The fishmonger had a problem... He was now in his late forties He would be retiring soon He needed a successor The successor would manage his small enterprise The successor had to come from his slums He had no family Thus, the BOY would have to be his successor!

He was now in his late forties

He would be retiring soon

He needed a successor

The successor would manage his small enterprise

The successor had to come from his slums

He had no family

Thus, the BOY would have to be his successor!

Just a small problem with that... The boy was only twelve The boy had not gone to school In fact, he had no formal schooling So the fishmonger would have to teach him the business That shouldn't be TOO HARD, should it? 

The boy was only twelve

The boy had not gone to school

In fact, he had no formal schooling

So the fishmonger would have to teach him the business

That shouldn't be TOO HARD, should it? 

Another problem, sire? Actually, YES: The boy wanted to collect and sell papers Just like his father One problem with that also: Sales of paper collection was weak Guess the boy better become a fish seller, huh? 

Actually, YES:

The boy wanted to collect and sell papers

Just like his father

One problem with that also:

Sales of paper collection was weak

Guess the boy better become a fish seller, huh? 

So the boy went off to study fish sales. At first, he was treated nicely... And progressed along fine. After four trimesters, he started to get lazy. He got a serious reprimand for that! At fourteen, he became the fishmonger's successor. His fish sales skyrocketed He was able to expand the business    

At first, he was treated nicely...

He was able to expand the business

 

 

The boy's first IPO The fish selling house was moved three times First to a small warehouse Then to a garage Finally to the basement of a skyscraper. At this point, the boy decided to go public He launched an IPO It was Ayyuthia's first (BTW: the Boy lived in the land of Ayyuthia) (BTW: Ayyuthia is impoverished at the time) The IPO raised four hundred grand In Ayyuthian currency, of course Enough to expand into another trade

The aid package fails and his neighbors are indebted to him further perpetuating their poverty trap they HATE him for this

The man is so depleted of his capital he must return to the slums which, BTW, doesn't exist anymore due to the typhoon

Restoring reputations... is not extremely easy it IS extremely HARD But the man and their friends find a way by reinvesting the money in small enterprises started by the poop people The world of finance rebounds And Ayyuthia, which didn't do stimulus payments and followed common sense is now a WEALTHY country
