Mini guide for small businesses

Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the edge of a deserted road.

The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the sheep, which graze and says: – “All right”.

He then turns to the shepherd and says: – “You have exactly 1586 sheep here.”

The shepherd answers: – That’s correct, you can have your sheep. The young man takes the sheep and puts it in the back of his jeep.

The shepherd looks at him and asks: “If I guess your profession, will you return my sheep to me?”

The young man answers: “Yes, why not.”

The shepherd says: – You are an Accountant!
