Carnegie Was Tough As Steel - Investors.com
Had to share this rags to riches story. Pay attention to the amount of time it took him to build his wealth. In order to set himself apart from others he worked hard so that he can get noticed. His jobs helped educate him in business practices. All of this led to one of the richest men in American history. He was also a philanthropist that helped many but the biggest contribution that has affected me is the commissioning of Napoleon Hill to study the the wealthy and their habits. Napoleon Hill eventually wrote "Think and Grow Rich". This book still influences thousands around the world today. By the way Napoleon Hill was commissioned at no pay. He obviously saw the bigger picture.
