    How He Built His Empire

    Hot 2 months ago

    A young man asked a rich old man how he had made his fortune.
    The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was back in 1932, during the depth of the Great Depression. There I was, down to my last nickel."
    "I invested that nickel in an apple and spent the better part of the day polishing that apple. At the end of the day, I sold it for ten cents."
    "The following morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the whole day polishing them and sold them at 5:30PM for twenty cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I had accumulated a fortune of $8.40."
    "And that's how you built your empire?" the young man asked.
    "Gracious, no!" exclaimed the old man. "Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."

    If I had a nickel for every time I forgot something, I don't know how much I'd have!
