What WW2 POW Movies Can Teach You About Not Only Surviving But Prospering as Well
There’s a lot of interest these uncertain days in business ideas and skills which will retain their value in regardless of the economic conditions. If you want to discover one of the best skills to cultivate into a viable business, go rent those old WW II POW movies such as King Rat, Stalag 17, The Great Escape, and Empire of the Sun. Although my memory has faded over the past 30 years since I saw them as a kid, they invariably had a stock character: the trader. This is the POW who starts off with nothing, just like his fellow prisoners, and then parlays some small asset into a business based on wheeling and dealing in anything that has value inside the environment from cigarettes to soap to tooth brushes.
