Sam Walton | 山姆沃顿

Sam made his senior executives share hotel rooms, and he drove around in a pickup truck. He and his wife went to church every Sunday. They sat anywhere just like others. Mr. Walton would even quietly wash dishes at the church after meal.

One of the best things he ever said was that he made partners of every employee, and the success of Walmart was due to ideas of all the employees. In today’s buzz word, he meant that the success of the company was due to relentless innovation.

But what makes Mr. Walton so special is not just lowest price or best service to customers, but a true genuine humbleness: the belief that all people are equal in front of God.

That’s why Magic Math Mandarin is created.
