Eugene J. Benge How to Become a Successful Executive (Success Motivation Institute, 1962) You TOO can be a successful executive! Imagine the jealousy of your peers when they see your new office! A wide expanse of walnut just waiting for the business to roll in. A lesser man might be satisfied with just one pen. Not you. And the gold plated letter opener will make a mean slice once the correspondence starts coming. Ms. Johnson! Ms. Johnson, there! A cup of your fine commercial brew for the new executive. Squeeze back behind the desk and warm up the keys on that Smith Corona. I may soon have a letter to dictate. I'm halfway through my library of success-building books and the money-making ideas are starting to flow. In no time, the clients will be filling up my appointment book and my ashtray. Ms. Johnson, I know I can trust your discretion with the secret bottle in the bottom drawer. Sometimes a successful executive needs a little nip to keep his confidence up. Well, that should do it. My hair is greased and my cuffs linked. Any calls yet, Ms. Johnson?

Are you sure the number you put in the ad was correct? Well, fine. I'm not worried. With my advice on this record and my snazzy new desk, I cannot fail!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
