Something Missing on the Sign

All it said on the sign was “Welcome to Kingfisher; Birthplace of Sam Walton; Founder of Wal-Mart.” It should have also read: This is where he developed his small town values and entrepreneurial spirit.

I am amazed as I travel around the country, learning the stories of less well-known entrepreneurs of how many were born and raised in small towns. A good friend, Dean Samuel, often sends me stories of people who started out in small town America and have gone onto tremendous success in this country. Let me know whom you know of that fits this category.
