I Needed to Show My Dad Just How Appreciative I Am

My father has been big into property management ever since I was a small boy. It has made him incredibly wealthy, and he was able to retire early just recently because of it. When I reached the age of 19, he said that he wanted to give me a couple of the properties to manage. Recently, I hired someone to do post tenancy cleaning for Singapore residents so that they can handle the simple stuff for me. Both of the properties need some renovations, and I will handle all of that myself in order to save money.

My dad has always been a hard worker. I have always seen how well that has done for him, but I did not immediately go down that same road myself. After I finished high school, I felt like I wanted to have fun for awhile before going to college. My parents were not happy about it, but they had no choice since I was 18 years old. I wasted a lot of time and money going out partying and hanging out with my friends. My dad refused to pay for me to be lazy, so I quickly learned that you can’t get by in life if you don’t have money coming in. It was a really good lesson in life for me.

When I finally decided to take things seriously and got accepted to go to a good college, my dad promised to help me out. I felt so bad for all the time I had wasted doing nothing important in previous years, so I thanked him profusely and I promised him that I would make him happy with me again. After he saw that I did so well in my first year of college, he then told me that he was giving me the two properties to manage. I will do everything I can to make up for lost time.
