The businessman and the fisherman

One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.

About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to relieve some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder to make a living for himself and his family. “You aren’t going to catch many fish that way,” said the businessman to the fisherman.

“You should be working rather than lying on the beach!”

The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, “And what will my reward be?”

“Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!” was the businessman’s answer. “And then what will my reward be?” asked the fisherman, still smiling. The businessman replied, “You will make money and you’ll be able to buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!”

“And then what will my reward be?” asked the fisherman again.

The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman’s questions. “You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you!” he said.

“And then what will my reward be?” repeated the fisherman.

The businessman was getting angry. “Don’t you understand? You can build up a fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees catch fish for you!”

Once again the fisherman asked, “And then what will my reward be?”

The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, “Don’t you understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach, looking at the sunset. You won’t have a care in the world!”

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, “And what do you think I’m doing right now?”

As long as he avoids beautiful Kikuyu damsels he should be alright.A new trend is emerging where young progressive Luo men in their late 20s to mid 30s having kuyo chicks and even get engaged.By the time he gets to late 40s his Kuyo pals have drummed it into his head thatn kama sisi,her fellow kuyos tumeshindwa,wewe ni nani uishi nayeye bila kukunywa steel wire kwa chai ya maziwa?With that the Luo men dissappears into Arabuko Sokoke forest and emerges the other side with a chocolate complexioned Anyango.

Okuyus believe they have business in their DNA, little do they know that its their proximity to nairobi that gave them the advantage and exposure.

Very true.And the fact that the first president was from sendro gave them obvious advantages.Si kwa ubaya but uwizi pia imechangia.Piga story na a typical Kuyo rural to urban mwenye amekam kanairo juzi.Within the first 3 minutes of the conversation ako na ‘business idea’’ anataka uchangie

In your opinion, what’s the moral of the story here?.. :sweat_smile:

Fantastic analogy.

Jakenya, Omera what is buana?

So did Nairobi grow on itself like an avocado tree. Kama mko na Ujanja mbona kisumu bado ni shithole. Shouldn’t it be the center of commerce in the lake region?

Bcz Nairobi is where the money is. Tell me since kyuks are business maestro’s, then how come Nyeri is a sleepy town. With old precolonial buildings in town centre.

And how did the money get there. Were they sweeping it on the streets. Na usiseme ni serikali juu kalenjin walibeba pesa yote wakati wa moi wakajenga ghost city eldoret na barabara walikuwa wanaanika mahindi zikauke.

In that point, nyeri is an agricultural town, buildings are not built for vanity ndio watu wajionyeshane wako na pesa

Modern buildings are proper infrastructure, they encourage business grown, imagine kfc in a precolonial building in nyeri town,…it wont happen.
due to nairobi being the power center circulation of money was high since watu walipata ajira na government branches procured goods and services.do you know during moi and kenyataa era karatasi ilikuwa inatumika huko district level ilikuwa inatoka nairobi… so tell me… would one open a paper selling biz in a place away from nrb during that era… ndio maana wasapere wengi jumped into the business wagon to carter for the demands that were present making them vets in that sector.

Buildings are built based on demand. It’s only in Nairobi where Thieving tenderpreneurs build buildings to wash money and then later consider finding customers.

In a normal economy, you conduct a feasibility study based on demand, present your proposal to a financier who checks the claims, and then gives you the money.

Lakini utapeli iko kenya inajinyesha wazi wazi kama kidonda. Empty buildings built to satisfy what demand. Nobody knows
