Joe Kravitz, Vocational Services Chair, on “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
In 1908, a Georgetown Law School student, Napoleon Hill, worked part-time as a journalist in Washington DC, whereby he would interview successful people of the era. One of his subjects was the famed businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. A granted short 3-hour interview expanded into 3 days of intrigue. Mr. Carnegie was so taken by Mr. Hill, that he offered him a job for 20 years…with no pay. After pausing for several seconds, Mr. Hill accepted the job. Dr. Joe Kravitz outlined some of the legendary world events, shaped by this talk, and how it made the world a better place. The information in this talk can help improve vocational service in the workplace, the community, the state, the country and the world. Success and failure are both lessons. This book can help any person learn how to use vocational service as a lifestyle to improve the lives of those all around you, near and far.
District Governor Greg Wims, who attended our meeting, endorsed the presentation and said it could be useful for other Rotary Clubs in our District. Thanks, Joe!
