Imagine the following two scenarios. In the first scenario, Jack has the opportunity to acquire a goose that lays golden eggs. It will take some sacrifice and a leap of faith to acquire the goose but the payoff could be amazing. But first, he will have to make an important investment decision.
Jack’s investment capital is a dairy cow that has stopped producing milk. He’s been instructed by his mother to sell the cow for cash, which will be put back into the farm that hasn’t been producing so well.
