I Had the Blues

When I was in college, I took a Dale Carnegie Human Relations Course through our local Penn State Extension program. Dale Carnegie, an early 1900s writer and lecturer, founded a well-known professional skills program still sought by top level executives in Fortune 500 companies. He was born into poverty on a farm in Missouri, where he milked cows every morning through his teenage years. From there, he moved into peddling products to ranchers and farmers throughout the Midwest and eventually into the role for which he is best known.
