Here's a great story about sales legend Alfred Fuller. It's from a "Living & Learning" column written by Larry A. Crider who writes a weekly "think piece" for local newspapers and public radio stations.
One of the most interesting stories in the history of American business is the story of Alfred Carl Fuller. Fuller, who grew up on a farm, headed for Boston in 1903 to make his way in the world. With only $75 in his pocket, the unemployed 18-year-old moved in with his sister and her husband hoping to start a new life for himself that wouldn’t include farming.
