This Expert Insight Interview Discusses:

  • The Book’s Origin.
  • What Was Carload Ritchie’s Selling Strategy?
  • What Was His Most Significant Advantage?

Life of The World’s Greatest Salesman

Carload Ritchie was born in the nineteenth century on a little island about 5 hours north of Toronto. He was one of the first people in the country to consider selling. As a result, he established operations in Australia, New Zealand, South America, North America, and Central America. This was what set him unique at the time.

He was a dedicated family man, although he spent more time traveling than at home. Carload Ritchie only traveled by car or plane because trains were too regular for him. An aviation tour around South America to inspect his agencies was common; he once claimed that he traveled 125,000 miles each year.

His Approach To Selling

In Time Magazine’s obituary, he was described as small and fat, despite the fact that he did not have such physical characteristics. Still, he felt that he should go to every territory he was selling into, so he traveled. He went around, met everyone, and looked around the market. He fully comprehends the market.

He realized what companies he was representing as a sales representative. He saw the promise in the best of them and ended up purchasing a number of them, and from them, a number of items became the foundation of huge pharmaceutical corporations.
