Practice Makes Perfect

Wilma didn't get much of a head start in life. A bout with polio left her left leg crooked and her foot twisted inward so she had to wear leg braces.  After seven years of painful therapy, she could walk without her braces.  At age 12 Wilma tried out for a girls basketball team, but didn't make it.  Determined, she practiced with a girlfriend and two boys every day. The next year she made the team.

When a college track coach saw her during a game, he talked her into letting him train her as a runner.  By age 14 she had outrun the fastest sprinters in the U.S. In 1956 Wilma made the U.S. Olympic team, but showed poorly. That bitter disappointment motivated her to work harder for the 1960 Olympics in Rome--and there Wilma Rudolph won three gold medals, the most a woman had ever won.

Reseller's Corner:

Finding your Business and Gifts: Advertising (Part 5)
by Patricia Alejandro Paterno

God is our marketing manager.

We don’t have an advertising budget but we’re always invited to be on TV or radio or we get interviewed for magazine articles.

So we receive a lot of exposure. I guess if you’ve got a good idea, if your business has personality or character, then it gets noticed. Although we didn’t start out with a clear idea about our brand, it developed because we were all personally involved. So naturally the character of our business came from our own character and personalities.
