Pinching Your way to Success (Apr, 1958)

Apparently when a man decides to do something about his future, he starts by pinching his nipples.

The proven rule of “learn more to earn more” took M.E.F. (name on request) from a position of truck driver to that of an accounting executive in sixteen months. Listen to what M.E.F. says:

“I was driving a truck—working long hours and not making much money. I had a burning desire to better myself in life, and decided to enroll with LaSalle. I went along driving my truck days and studying nights and got my first break after completing 35 assignments. I took a cost accounting position. Within one month after starting full-time, I received my first raise, thereafter followed more. One of the greatest thrills of my life came just nineteen months after I started with LaSalle. When our firm opened up a branch office, I was assigned to take charge of the Accounting Department and my salary has doubled.”

M.E.F. took a proved road to success—and his letter is typical of the thousands we have in our files from men and women in all walks of life.
