Last day today, but again I would like to thank simpledimple.wordpress.com for nominating me for this challenge.I am going to stay with Dale Carnegie and give you a little more information about him.
In 1911 he quit his sales job, to persue a lifelong dream of his to become a lecturer, However he ended up attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. He tried acting with a touring troupe, but that soon ended. He returned to New York, unemployed and broke and was living at the YMCA. In 1912 he persuaded the YMCA to allow him to teach Public Speaking. He got a classroom in return for 80% of the net proceeds. He quickly became a successful teacher capitalizing on the average American’s desire to have more self-confidence. In 1913 he published his first book, “Public Speaking & Influencing Men in Business” In 1926 he published his first collection “Public Speaking: A Practical Course for Business Men ” The book became a Best Seller, the author became rich. However , he lost all his savings in the market crash of 1929. Dale Carnegie learned to accept the worst can happen, then proceed to improve on the worst. His own experience was the source for his Best selling books.
