The value of a job comes not only in the paycheck but also in the chance to learn new skills and absorb the secrets of business. Self-help pioneer Orison Swett Marden-the preeminent motivational expert of the early 20th century and a forerunner of Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen R. Covey and Anthony Robbins-recognized this truth a century ago, and in this concise 1909 work, he explains how to find the "salary" beyond mere dollars and sense.
From the vital importance of self-respect to the best way to cultivate the right attitude for success in the business world, Marden's advice is just as timely today as it was a century ago...and just as useful.
American writer and editor ORISON SWETT MARDEN (1850-1924) was born in New England and studied at Boston University and Andover Theological Seminary. In 1897, he founded Success Magazine.
