One day in 1989, while visiting China, I had a conversation with our tour guide. She was doing her best, but I could see she wasn’t happy with her job. She told me that she had majored in Engineering and earned the equivalent of a Master’s degree. But in China (at least back then), the government gave you a job; you had no choice. Some government worker decided that she would be a tour guide. So this Thanksgiving, let’s be thankful for the United States of America, where we entrepreneurially spirited folks can be all that we can be.
