What’s Back Of The Man
j For th«* past twenty years we have
ohorvei] that the young ma.i or woman
who WINS arc. invariably, the ones who
ate well fortified ly a thorough hus
ine s training. It matters not what vo
cation they choose, the real foundation
and seer* t «>• their ucres* is based upon
a thorough knowledge of the fundamen
tals of busiiess.
A High School training i: good in
fart, means murk. Hut what ran you
do that will enable you to earn a sal: ry
* a !:v nng wage? To do this, y*,u must
go further.
If you choose to go to th • University,
you mu t resign yourself to the task of
spending front four to six years more
in school. That is expensive. It will
co-1 front o tc thou-and to fifteen hurt
*lr d dollars each year. The average
young man or woman does not have the
.: -ans nor will they take the time rtec
es.-ary to equip themselves with a
j University training. Kven should they
d<> so. there is a I way - a non-productive
|H" iod • icr completing a Univirsity
Course, the building uj of a pt act ice or
J clientele on their chosen profession.
I Not o with a busitie ■ -> training. You
, may go dir* ct from the class room into
j a good paying pos.tion and begin to pro
i duce from the beginning. The 1*> ig< r
\< u work, th*- more you are able to earn, i
The more experience you have, th.- j
better your salary.
Unlike the University, it is not nec
*s ary to have a High School education
to enter a Busiiess ' allege. Although
t is desirable, it is not e sential. Many
young people enter Business College
with a < opinion school education and,
in many ca c-. make as good or better
progress th: n those who have he n mor**
fortunate—or who have had letter < p
| portunities. ,
