17 Quotes from Sam Walton Made in America | 6amSuccess
SamWalton grew up in the Great Depression and this time left a lasting impression on him: EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS. When money is scarce, you can’t afford to be wasteful. Whether it was food, clothing, transportation or fun, there was an opportunity to be efficient and not to waste your hard earned cash.
Jack Welch said, “SamWalton understood people the way Thomas Edison understood innovation and Henry Ford, production. He brought out the very best in his employees, gave his very best to his customers, and taught something of value to everyone he touched.”
Having this thought and philosophy instilled at an early age had a great impact on his life in later years when he started in business.
If you want to succeed in a business, read this book. Don’t think, “I’m just starting a small bookstore. Walton would be talking way over my head.” Think again. Walton started from scratch. What he learned along the way applies to everything from corporate giants to lemonade stands.
SamWalton was passionate about retailing, and his passion leaps off the pages. I don’t get the feeling that he’s saying, “look at how great I am.” Rather, he’s just telling the story of building Wal-Mart through his eyes, warts and all. Bonus: he allows associates and family members give their two-cents worth in text boxes, even if their opinion is less than flattering.
It doesn’t take many pages to realize that Walton loved his work and pursued it with boundless energy. If he had been in it solely for the money, he’d have left Wal-Mart when he was worth his first billion. But he loved his work. During his final weeks on earth, dying of cancer, his family brought in a local Wal-Mart manager to chat with Walton about his store’s sales figures.
