2 boys & their dad

Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on April 3, 2012

Two young boys had the unfortunate up bringing by a father who was a thief a scoundrel and a drunk. He gave them little support and set the worst possible example for how to lead life as an adult.

One of the boys grew up to be just like his father. A thief and scoundrel and a drunk.

One of the boys grew up to be a successful businessman and a stand up member of his community.

When they were asked why they turned out the way they did as adults they both gave the same answer:

“What did you expect, my dad was a thief, a scoundrel and a drunk”
