Quote, unquote: On the power of drop by drop

"When I began in publishing, H&H [Canadian House & Home] was deeply in the red and it was depressing. A business mentor told me that a business was like a Coke bottle. You keep putting water in that bottle, drop by drop and you think it will never be full. Then one day it’s full and after that every time you add a drop it spills over or spurts. I kept visualizing that Coke bottle, trying not to lose faith. He was right. That investment was money well spent."
-- Lynda Reeves, the president of House & Home Media, quoted in the Toronto Star blog Moneyville (mostly about her approach to personal finance.
