96 - The Richest Man in Town
The Richest Man in Town by V.J. Smith shares the simple truths of Marty Martinson, an elderly Wal-Mart greeter in Brookings, South Dakota. Seemingly a nobody, Marty affected thousands of people across the country – even though he had difficulty remembering their names. Customers would write of the impact he had made on their lives with his simple wisdom and words of kindness. Upon reading their letters, he would shake his head, unable to recall the incident – but pleased that he had made a difference. This book shares the lessons on life that a seemingly unimportant oldster taught to complete strangers, such as “Give a little more of yourself,” “The only person who can make you happy is you” and “Be a better you.” Marty lived his beliefs – convinced that “when you are nice to people, you get it back and then some.”
