� So when we sit down at our Saturday morning meetings to talk about our business, we like to spendtime focusing on a single store, and how that store is doing against a single competitor in that particularmarket. We talk about what that store is doing right, and we look at what it's doing wrong. Minnie was roused from a reverie by the entrance of the preacher's tall figure into the kitchen, where the fire was now beginning to throw ruddy lights and fantastic shadows on to the white-washed walls. Last season, Beverly hosted a popular television program called Lifestyles. This year, she said, "I'm doing something much bigger, as a result of that show's success. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what it is, because CBS will be making an announcement in mid-October." � � 五月丁香综合缴情六月-丁香五月色六月综合缴情-五月丁香六月综合缴情基地 � It sure didn't slow us down any because two years later, in 1979, with about 230 stores on the street,we hit a billion dollars in sales for the first time. Of all the milestones we ever reached, that one probablyimpressed me the most. I have to admit, I was amazed that Wal-Mart had turned into a billion-dollarcompany. But I couldn't see any logic to stopping there, and right about then another acquisitionopportunity came our way. I've been asked if I was a hands-on manager or an arms-length type. I think really I'm more of amanager by walking and flying around, and in the process I stick my fingers into everything I can to seehow it's coming along. I've let our executives make their decisionsand their mistakesbut I've critiquedand advised them. My appreciation for numbers has kept me close to our operational statements, and toall the other information we have pouring in from so many different places. In that sense, I think my styleas an executive has been pretty much dictated by my talents. I've played to my strengths and relied onothers to make up for my weaknesses. In the early days of Wal-Mart, this period we've been talking about, I really believe our emphasis onitem promotion helped us to make up for a lot of shortcomings we hadan unsophisticated buyingprogram, a less than ideal merchandise assortment, and practically no back-office support. It wasanother way of swimming upstream. We made up for what we didn't have by being merchants. EASTSIDER ANDY WARHOL
