Merchandising Studies of the States, Their Resources and Development

Excerpt from Merchandising Studies of the States, Their Resources and Development The ambitious man, professional or business, longs to extend his field of operations. That is the yardstick of success. If a man stands still, after a while friends - and enemies - begin to talk quietly about him. So the enterprising man searches for new fields, scrutinizes new opportunities. Every business is a shadow of some one man. Some shadows are short; some tremendously long. The long shadows come from the man who sees beyond his township, county, state, continent. Subtract the factors involved in a small business of $1,000 a year from those of a business of $1,000,000 a year, and you will get (1) desire; (2) ambition; (3) ability. See America first! The proposition is so simple I hesitate to set it down. Many young and ambitious business men wrinkle their brows and study possibilities in China, India, and South America, overlooking those nearer at home. The leap into successful trade overseas is much shorter from a well-established domestic trade - and more natural. Wonderful opportunities lie in Arkansas, North Carolina, Michigan. Mr. Douglas gives us in these "Merchandising Studies of the States" the benefit of a far-sighted business man's survey of these domestic possibilities which lie outside our own door. Don't be misled! There is no dark formula here for the reader who wishes to enlarge his business - that cannot be given; if it could, all the zest would be taken out of the contest.
