"Daddy, its unfortunate you are dying without a penny in your bank..
Other fathers' that you tag as being corrupt, thieves of public funds left houses and properties for their children; even this house we live in is a rented apartment..
Sorry, I can't emulate you, just go, let's chart our own course..
At interview the Chairman of the committee asked,
"Which Smith are you..??"
"I am Sara Smith. My Dad Tom Smith is now late.."
"O my God, you are Tom Smith's daughter..?"
"This Smith man was the one that signed my membership form into the Institute of Administrators and his recommendation earned me where I am today. He did all these free. I didn't even know his address, he never knew me. He just did it for me.."
He turned to Sara,
"I have no questions for you, consider yourself as having gotten this job, come tomorrow, your letter will be waiting for you.."
It pays to build a name, the reward doesn't come quickly but it will come however long it may take and it lasts longer..
