What Is a Business Fable?

Once upon a time, a young entrepreneur wanted to create a dream life by building a successful business. This hero or heroine embarked on a journey to discover the secrets of creating such a business. He or she overcame great challenges, foes and obstacles to obtain this dream, nearly failing several times. Finally, after learning these secrets, the hero or heroine overcame the final battle and achieved his or her heart’s desire for a great business and lifestyle.
