Starting a business is a little like being
a spider. You're born and are kicked from your mother's protection
as soon as you can walk for yourself. You set up your own web, open
and then sit and wait for the customers to come to you.
If you are successful, you get a bigger web and a big belly.
If you are unsuccessful, you shrivel up and die.
If you're too successful, and big too big a web, some hand comes out from above and crushes you.
Lesson: Be a big spider fast, but don't get too big.
