When Julia Tried to Start a Business – Forbes

A parable on squandering the inheritance:

Julia gave up her dream of working outdoors, and spent the rest of her life closeted in a room staring at a computer screen.  It wasn’t what she really wanted to do, but web design not require a license (yet) and she could avoid the hassles involved with having employees.  The public never got its park back, and the campground still sits closed, the facilities falling apart from neglect.  But a few months after Julia gave up, a park agency employee wrote a scathing editorial in the local paper, citing Julia’s failure as a great example of how private enterprise has failed and the need for public agencies to do more.
