Want To Be A Success?
First Belong To Church
AP Newsfeatures
Miami, Fla. (AP) — William
Mark Brown, who founded 52
corporations and several banks,
says his first rule of success is to
belong to a church.
But that doesn’t mean the 89
year-old capitalist expected the
Almighty to do his working or
thinking for him. He says he at
tended the Episcopal Church in
his home town of Springfield,
Mass., "because my folks did. But
making friends with the rector
was my own idea."
That friendship paid off when
the rector, transferred to Utica,
N. Y., heard of an opening in a
real estate and insurance firm
and got the job for Brown.
That started Brown on his way
to wealth. He left for Utica with
out capital or influence. In ten
years, he had learned enough
about real estate, insurance, rail
roading and banking to start sev
eral corporations and four banks.
The 52 corporations he founded
were mostly enterprises which
helped the newly-founded city of
His second, third and fourth
success rules are closely related
to the first:
2. Be an opportunist. (He asked
the rector t olet him know if he
heard of any opportunities).
3. Never ask for a job outright.
Get a friend to recommend you.
He can tell of your good points
without bragging; you can’t.
4. Make friends. Friendship is
more valuable than money.
5. Don't stop to think how you
are going to do a thing if it is in
line with your main goal.
6. Don't be afraid to change
jobs or localities if the new
change lies in the direction of
your main goal. (He went from
his real estate and insurance job
to a railroad job in Florida).
7. Never work for anyone else
if you can go into business for
yourself. (With James Pritchard,
he started his first bank in Titus
ville, Fla., although neither had
any capital. They agreed that “a
bank is not money; a bank is con
fidence.” Capital soon flowed in
and they organized other banks
in the state, including the first one
in Miami).
brief sermonette by Pastor Zuc
After the service, the Walther
League will go caroling at the
homes of sick and shut-ins among
the church’s members.
The Christmas Eve midnight
'candle-lighting service, at 11:30
p. m. Monday, will begin with a
few minutes of silent meditation
in the dark church, with only a
single candle burning before the
altar painting.
After -the singing of several
Christmas hymns and carols,
there will be a devotional ser
monette on the topic, "When God
Came to Live with Us." The can
dle-lighting ceremony leads up to
singing of "Joy to the World" at
Christmas Day at 10 a. m. there
will be a festival communion with
special music by the choir. For the
first time since coming to Christ
church, Pastor Zucker will chant
the minister’s part of the com
munion liturgy in the service.
Sunday morning, in observance
of the fourth Sunday in Advent,
Pastor Zucker’s topic will be
“What Hath God Wrought!”
8. New transportation, whether
! by rail, water, highway or air,
jextends opportunity for the coura
j geous. (Brown invested freely in
j transportation industries),
j 9. When loss threatens, and it
I often threatens opportunists no
matter how well they plan, stall
for time. Then use this time re
10. Marry a partner who be
lieves in you and won’t pull
against you whert you take
chances in changing jobs or going
into business deals.
