    When he was nineteen years old, the future business tycoon Jim Pattison got a job as a used car salesman. After enrolling at the University of British Columbia, he developed a novel means of selling cars: each morning, he would drive a sample to school, sell it to a fellow student during the day, and return home by public transit! [In 1955, when he took over management of his father's used-car business, Pattison initiated the practice (subsequently notorious) of firing the salesman who sold the fewest cars each month. 'The best salesman,' he once remarked, 'hasn't been hired yet.']
