It’s amazing how well stories and analogies teach us. Maybe that’s why Jesus often spoke in parables.
This gem of a post on Start Up Blog relates growing vegetables to growing a business. The similarities are astounding. A few morsels:
The market is a competitive one. We’ll need to fight off bugs, birds and insects, who want to feed on our efforts. This proves you’ve got a fertile market… one worth doing, one with yield.
We’ll learn that all vegetables are seasonal. We’ll learn that not all climates (markets) suit all vegetables. We’ll realize we get better results when we focus on a veggie we have expert knowledge with.
The effort need not be excessive, just consistent. We can grow an entire garden, or even a pumpkin in a pot will give the same benefit.
