Not enough, huh. So you think you can handle some more? Ok!


Pull, Gossip, And Bribes


The young woman who is expecting to get a fat job through pull is working on a false basis. The young woman whose objective is to get a snap shows she has not ambition, and surely this young woman will occupy inferior positions as long as she gets a job through pull.

There is a legitimate pull in business, and that is activity and ability. Don't look for snaps. Snaps are merely traps. Women are not paid for snaps, but for snap. The average young woman out of college looks for a job through the pull of her father or some relation, and in this she is making a great error. The best way to get a job is to get it without pull through your own energy and aggressiveness.

The best jobs are obtained through push and not pull. The City Hall and Government buildings all have the word "pull" on the front door, and in direct contrast with this you will notice the front doors or the successful business institutions are marked “push”.

It is surprising to see the extent to which gossip is carried on among business people. The funny papers always refer to women and the members of the sewing societies as gossips of the first class, but if the gossip going around business circles could be tabulated, we are sure the sewing society would have the joke on us.

It is a footless thing to spend valuable time in idle gossip, for the gossip is seldom a successful business woman. Gossip takes hold of some women to such an extent that most of their waking hours are spent in finding out something to tell to someone else, and thus leaves but little time for business.

Many business women seem to think that bribes are efficient helps. It is not so. The moment you bribe a person you acknowledge your dishonesty by paying for his dishonesty, and you may be sure that the bribe habit will grow; the demands of the men accepting the bribe will grow to alarming proportions. For every dollar you make by bribe you are losing ten dollars in other ways, especially ones own self respect and satisfaction.

The moment you give a bribe you are under and some day or other the facts will be brought and you will suffer the consequences of your own weakness. Underhand, clandestine information you get is nothing more than dishonesty on your part. You can get better info and accomplish your purpose more surely by going to competitor, stating your case plainly, and announcing abhorrence of underhand methods.

Your competitors appreciate you more for your fairness.

Col. Wm. C. Hunter, Dollars and Sense, 1906, Gender Adjusted: Feminine

Poise, Efficiency, Peace

Thought-habit, will become fixed on Faith or Fear, and the result is good or bad, accordingly.

If your thought is fixed on Faith, in the greater meaning, you are invincible. If it is fixed on Fear, or its elder child, Worry, you stand helpless, weak, conquered and miserable.

If I can, by suggestion, logic, example, proof, reason or humor get your thought habit fixed on Faith, coach you to the understanding that will give you Poise, Efficiency, Peace, then I have done a thing well worth while.

To that end, and with that purpose, I dedicate my services and this book to each of you who read it.
