Business Connections

Father : "I want you to marry a girl of my choice."
Son : "I will choose my own bride!"
Father: "But the girl is Bill Gates's daughter."
Son : "Well, in that case...ok"

Next, Father approaches Bill Gates.
Father: "I have a husband for your daughter."
Bill Gates: "But my daughter is too young to marry!"
Father: "But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank."
Bill Gates: "Ah, in that case...ok"

Finally, Father goes to see the president of the World Bank.
Father: "I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president."
President: "But I already have more vice-presidents than I need!"
Father: "But this young man is Bill Gates's son-in-law."
President: "Ah, in that case...ok"

This is how business is done!
  • In good time, if you want to be successful in business, make and build more connections.
  • But what happens during economic downturn? Many companies have declared bankruptcy. Many people have been retrenched.
  • "If the blind leads the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." -- Matthew 15:14 Bible. That is why any human relationship without God is meaningless.
  • Enjoy your work and your life in the shadow of God. Pray often. God will prosper your way with Him despite the circumstances.
