"But the point is not shut down the college. Now, of course, he just changes the focus. So instead of teaching students, how to build cars there now taught how to sell them. Okay Are you. There is a car salesman college. Well now. What is Live here what is that like? I can't even imagine the negotiate the constant negotiation. It's really bad. Yeah. So I want you guys to get that in by Thursday at one PM sir. If I may I was thinking that it might make more sense if we were to maybe split that over three days, just three installments of giving you a little bit of each paper Sir I can actually do that and I can do that in two papers. I can do that over Wednesday and Thursday guys it's non-negotiable. I'm liking what I'm here. What's your credit like sir? It's fantastic. We'll do you mind if I. Run it.

You got just sit to someone else at one. No listen. This is what we're after. That's right now can I just get a credit card or some family history from you real quick. On April Eleventh Nineteen twelve. Motor World Magazine published an article about the Automobile College. It was titled Pointing the Easy Route to get rich quick land. Broke hit broke down the ways the college was The plan for students to make five k year was that the students were Kate we agents? They were just considered sales agent. So that's like that's how you can make five hills to actually sell cars. Right or you know I made a lot of money and make it a fake college. That's another route you guys can go. They also would get three bucks a head for every student new student they brought in. So the. Amway's yeah I mean yeah. I'm with the college. On. November Eleventh Nineteen Twelve and point in Florence had a baby. He was a baby boy. He was Daphne had no ears. Oh my God. You could've gone in just that. You could have gone with the first one would have assumed. From Napoleon's official biography quote in the years to come despite intense fighting with both family and schoolteachers Napoleon would never allow the boy to learn sign language. He was determined to singlehandedly teaches deaf son to speak and even to hear see now, that's what happens when you're able to open a bullshit car college where eventually you're teaching car salesmanship you just believe too much and you should you have every right to believe that you walk on water but the idea that you're going to like. Essentially obviously removes the child's ability to communicate completely, which is cool. So cool. Dad Check. So my boys going to have the biggest ears this town's ever seen that right son. Baby steps. The automobile college and its doors in one, thousand, nine hundred, and soon after Napoleon decided he wanted more in Chicago is the place to go. So Florence's family actually got him work at Lasalle Extension University through a connection, and after arriving, he quickly prenup stationary stationary quote Napoleon Hill Attorney at law. Twenty seven fifteen Michigan Avenue Chicago now he's obviously never going to law school sure he has no legal experience, right but he was just like this. I'm here might as well do this. Yeah.

"How does one control their wheel of fortune? And Carnegie said quote first of all to control the wheel of Fortune One must understand master and apply the seventeen principles of achievement silence. These principles. And I might hear suggests that these if properly applied, we'll carry one a long way on the road toward success in any. Carnegie sounds just very. Very, good list listed seventeen things because that's what Carnegie did. He came up with a list seventy. Yeah. That's why we know the Carnegie Seventeen. So obviously none of this is true. Cuts Napoleon did he point did not make? He did not Carnegie. Washington DC go to work. He was just hiding in Washington DC. From Other people who wanted them. But in December, he joined the Automobile Club of Washington, and then a couple of months. Later, he started the Automobile College of Washington. And made himself. He made himself. Well Dave is he I understand that the ascension to president now does it matter and any sequence of? Experience but. Is Is it strange to immerse yourself in the world of cars for roughly two months and then decide that you can open car university? I mean, it's interesting. It's an interesting choice back then how rudimentary cars were but I imagine a couple of months you could learn how to party together. There were still people who knew more. Sure most. Okay. Okay. So so Napoleon Hill has started car university. That's right. He puts ads and papers saying that one could become an expert in assembling cars, six weeks and a graduate of his college could make up to two hundred, which is about five thousand dollars a week. Okay. Sounds. Pretty good. Sounds a little too good. So he started with two other partners but very quickly, the other partners bailed. That they're called part cartner in that business correct that's right. Thinking it turned out to not be so much of college. What happened was Napoleon had made a deal with the Carter Motor Corporation to build their cars. So students were actually look he's like Nathan, for Ewing this. So stint actually just unpaid laborers actually they're paying to be laborers to build cars For. S Four company that's then selling him and he's taking all the money. He's taking money from people from students to to learn how to build cars to build cars for him. Then he's taking and and getting money for the cars being built and the people getting these cars. Are you sure this is built properly a lot of these. The rear view mirrors in the engine, the tail pipes in the back seat, the Mufflers, the steering wheel looks our cars a car. Yeah. I mean it's really fucking crazy. You get pretty mad at me for a guy who hasn't really taught me how to do this yet I've just telling you. We have fucking deadlines.

"Episode contains graphic depictions violence listener discretion is advised by Monday morning. After the murder of Rosa trice the storms had had moved out of Atlanta. The papers weather prophecy for that day simply said cloudy and Cooler Atlanta had three major white newspapers then the Atlanta Constitution the Atlanta Georgian in the Atlanta Journal these papers were the informational lifeblood of Atlanta life in the early nineteen hundreds remember. It's nineteen nineteen eleven so there's no TV and commercial radio wouldn't arrive till nineteen twenty. Two newspapers were the source for local national and international news. He's the three Atlanta papers. Were highly competitive and rival journalists. Were in a never ending battle to out scoop each other. It wasn't uncommon for newspapers to publish several editions per day. Sometimes printing a morning afternoon and evening edition morning edition of the Constitution was only ten pages long on Monday day. January twenty third. I've browsed hundreds possibly thousands of pages of newspapers from back then and I can tell you that the news on this day was pretty standard standard lots of mundane things. A list of acts playing in Atlanta's downtown theaters and upcoming basketball game between the Birmingham Athletic Club in the Atlanta Athletic Club. An ad from a local department store advertising two dollar hats half price underwear and something called a fancy stiff bosom shirt for fifty cents. I have no idea. What a fancy Steph? Buslim shirt is but fifty cents. Seems like a steal and surprisingly surprisingly there were lots of agricultural updates that day as well in nineteen eleven. The rising city of Atlanta was a tiny dot of urbanism situated in the A C of rural farmland that day's paper had a guy who sold three hundred hogs for a small fortune an article about boll weevils vols devastating southern cotton crops. Though the pests had not yet arrived in Georgia then it had a section where people could write a letter to a farm expert with questions and one of the questions was about the right combination of horse. Manure acid phosphate needed to fertilize corn. Another was from a guy who's is cow had a rash quote on the left side of the utter just above the Left Front teat in quote. HASHTAG bovine buber her. There were lots of transportation related articles in that day's paper to a list of railroad departure times trains leaving from Atlanta bound to places like Chattanooga Shreveport Shreveport Charlotte Birmingham and New York City. It also had a front page story about a Canadian pilot named Birdman. Douglas mccurdy and his plan planned to fly his airship from Key West to Havana as a point of reference. This is just about seven years after Wilbur and Orville Wright made that first flight at Kitty Hawk there was also an ad in the classifieds looking for fifty men to enroll in the automobile college of Atlanta the Ad Promise to train young men to repair Oh and drive automobiles now. It's important to note here that at the time of our story. Automobiles were still pretty new. Cars were a luxury only for the well L. to do and if you walk the streets of Atlanta One thousand nine eleven you would see both horsedrawn carriages and automobiles side by side. All all of these new transportation innovations were examples of the massive technological transition. America was going through at this time whereas the free flow of Information has defined our day Aka the Internet the lives of Americans back. Then we're being defined by the free flow of bodies via planes planes trains and automobiles in that same day's paper. There was also a smattering of things. That were just plain weird an ad for gonorrhea cure all you had to do was melanoma dollar in. They'd send you to treatment in the mail. The there was a story about the nearest living descendant of George Washington recently dying in a small small town north of Atlanta and there was an ad for Madame. Delray a psychic palm reader who could advise on quote love family and Business Affairs. There's lawsuits marriages investments and lost articles in quote but the darkest articles that day were the ones dealing with with violence. A front page story of a fourteen year old kid stabbing one of his friends. The story of Ethel Olson. who fired a bullet at her husband to defend herself herself because he was trying to throw acid interface? A guy being treated at Grady Hospital. Who tried to kill himself? By drinking six bottles of Laudanum laudanum was basically an opium cocktail prescribed back. Then as a painkiller in sort of a cure all for all kinds of ailments and they're on on page five all the way at the bottom. Three little paragraphs topped by this headline Negro woman found murdered near home Now let me inject a personal note here throughout the series album using either the terms African American or black people. However at the time of the story the predominant used in the Press Work Negro Negras which is for female or colored? Now I'll only use those terms when quoting waiting either a publication or person from that era. It's important to remember that at the time of the story. African Americans were in a completely different social class than whites. I'll talk a lot more about this later. Also the three major Atlanta newspapers were owned by white men employed white men and sold almost exclusively to literate white readers that the brutal murder of innocent black woman got little more than a few sentences shouldn't be entirely.

"This kind of half scam car college napoleon meets another woman named elizabeth horner now his main attraction to elizabeth seemed to be that her family was rich. <hes> the got hitched and shortly thereafter napoleon's bogus car college collapses <hes> now. Did everyone just kinda. I don't know hard to say well. It seems like what happened is that the carter car company who he was making vehicles for <hes> fell apart probably probably because their vehicles were being assembled by people who didn't know how to make cars the one fatal flaw in the perfect scam. Napoleon didn't know to make cars so this is. This is the issue we're like. I don't think i don't think very functional cars. Were not being produced by the school so <hes> it was also alleged that napoleon had stolen a car from some of his business partners and <hes> he was arrested in his college was put into receivership now doc none of this stopped napoleon from continuing to operate his automotive college instead. He just changed the focus of the school from teaching people how to build cars to teaching people how to sell cars so be up. He got to be able to pivot if the scam logical is lynetta pivot now as time went on the focus of a school's drifted further and further away from teaching any kind of marketable skill and towards the sort of multilevel marketing schemes were very familiar with in the twenty first century that gizmodo article. I've been citing highlights. It's an early expose of hills scam article in motor world magazine titled pointing the easy route to get rich quick land. I went ahead and i found an archived copy of that report report and i'd like to read it now and my best old timey voice because i i really enjoy astonishing an enticing means employed by the greatest automobile college in the world to catch the would-be would be chauffeur's coin masters of gas engines evolved in twelve weeks before graduation and after there's money money everywhere if not a sin to spend that's that's pretty game yeah yeah yeah so the author of this article wrote about <hes> napoleon's revamped fake college that quote the whole business is so cunningly planned to appeal not only to the cupidite the of the indolent narrative well who in his ignorance thinks he sees the gates of prosperity standing ajar but also to the informed but really ambitious youth who has an honest desire to make something of himself and who is willing to devote his scanty savings and frequent spare hours to the task those those those narrative wells always screwing it up for the the the ambitious new bidders do wells now that that statement could apply equally well to like amway or young living essential oils or any modern day m._l._m. like this before people use the term multilevel marketing. They weren't even calling these pyramid schemes at this point wait so napoleon hill is really fucking groundbreaking at this stuff and like the actual business practice that he evolved for his auto college is like it's really groundbreaking <hes> basically i'm just gonna read from the article breaking down the very day you enroll the flow of language ripples goes on you may not racist permission begin to send in the names of the young men whom you think might be interested in our course it is estimated that half of such men will enroll and as the school pays three dollarss ahead for every student brought in according to this plan it is suggested that you should pay for your course several times over in this manner see he stops. He's not stephen selling like like he says like okay now. This is a school reach. People sell cars but the real businesses getting your friends to sign up for the college and then you get a cut of what they like. It's it's camila robert. Everybody's making money. So why are you mad well. I mean the only downside is that after like at a certain. I'm like six weeks or so into this process. There's no people less than six weeks. <hes> you know what i don't like to. I don't think that far ahead. I like to live in the now. That's actually why am so wealthy and successful because i'm not gonna you know these are negative thoughts and i'm thinking prosperity prosperity. You're thinking and growing rich. I am i am you should try thinking and growing november. Eleventh nineteen twelve napoleon in florence had their second baby boy in the second of their three children. This son was born deaf now. According to napoleon's biography a lifetime of riches quote the baby boy was not only born deaf. He was completely without years. In the years to come despite the intense fighting with both family and schoolteachers napoleon would never allowed the boy to learn sign language. Oh my god it gets what he was determined to singlehandedly teaches deaf son to speak and even to here as the boy was growing up hill would talk to him for hours hours with his lips pressed against blair's cranial bone at the base of the neck just behind where his ears would normally have been so creepy shouting into his kids. Go go go. Well not even shouting. Just tompkins live like that. Yeah wow yeah now. Napoleon's is by agassi claims that this eventually worked out because napoleon son had a weird bone deformity in like yeah. I'm i'm gonna read from the biographies you note clearly lies like obviously lies but this is how his biographers with the napoleon hill foundation explain why it was good that he refused to teaches teaches deficit sign language years later the boy did begin to hear for it was discovered that the bone itself was conducting sound his brain and eventually he wore a specially designed hearing aid that dramatically improved as hearing and speaking abilities but it was napoleon who inspired blair's desire to overcome his handicap. His father never allowed his son to give up. He didn't even allow blair to consider himself himself. Handicapped son that deafness was simply an adversity that could be triumphed over think and become not deaf if yeah thank in grow ears. I think what the fun why that's another way to quote overcome. The handicap of being deaf f. is to have sign language and speaks island. That's actually how you overcome that disability. It's can you imagine oh my god. I feel i feel for that. Kid just having to sit with your dad talking to your skull for hours and he's probably talking all sorts of bullshit about how like being deaf is your fault also because you didn't think hard enough about ears while you were growing or something your attitudes not positive enough yeah. You're not. You're not incredible. Nikko clearly ended completely sensor and mute him his entire life to give him no way to express himself wild constantly telling him you're not deaf. I'll say this it's it's not as bad as it sounds sarah because napoleon abandoned his children for the vast vast majority of their lives so he's not around all that much right now. It's a nicer thing to do. Yeah i would say it's better. It should be abandoned by napoleon hill parented by now. You know what it's not good to be abandoned by sarah <hes>.

"We're back and we found who napoleon hill does remind us a little. I love in its roger stone <hes> like i yeah i think that's a that's a good comparison sophie. <hes> i think this is what roger stone would have been if feed never gotten into politics because he is yeah well. We'll tell the rest of his story so that you can understand why i think that so on june seventeenth nineteen ninety-three napoleon hill married a woman named edith whitman their daughter edith whitman hill was born two years later in nineteen five the family moved to marbury alabama when their daughter was six months old but napoleon sent them back virginia five months after that then in nineteen zero seven he moved to mobile alabama to start a timber company with his family still waiting behind in virginia so he spends maybe a couple of months in total like actually living with his family and then he's off to start this new company now one probable reason that he spent so much time moving about outside side of his business is that napoleon hill had tremendous addiction to prostitutes. One of napoleon's friends later testified during divorce proceedings that his wife instituted about his behavior. You're on a nineteen o six business trip quote soon. After we reached bluefield west virginia we went to a house of ill fame between eight and nine o'clock that night and mr oliver in hill within a few minutes minutes after arriving there took one of the girls to room in the same house and stayed with her until about twelve o'clock that night both of the women who stayed at this house where of easy virtue and mr hill went there for the purpose of having sexual intercourse with these women. He admitted to me that night when we were going to the hotel that he had sexual intercourse with the girl that he took to the room. That's a pretty clear pretty pretty good well. No this is the one that this is the one that one of his friends told the judge about when his wife sued for divorce. Oh i see okay great great way to find that out yeah now. I think she probably guessed although he was again. Never around <hes> napoleon and edith were together for five ears but only actually again together for a fraction of that in court proceedings. Edith claimed that he was frequently violent when they were together at one point during a visit to virginia he left with their young daughter and delivered it hurt his stepmother and then threatened his wife that he would never give their daughter back to her in january of nineteen thousand eight <hes>. He wrote his wife this letter quote. I'm leaving the country where you'll never bother me you. You can only communicate with me through my father not unless he thinks best wow very excited to see this guy become extremely rich well. I have some good good news there <hes> but but we'll get to that i don't wanna i don't wanna. I don't wanna bury the lead. He does briefly <hes>. It does seem interesting to me that this is basically the same thing l. ron hubbard did into his second wife really kidnapping their baby and moving away except for in hubbard's case he took the baby to cuba and drank heavily well writing a book <hes> whereas says napoleon at least left his infant daughter with family so we can say conclusively that napoleon hill was a better father than l ron hubbard. There are worse things you can do with the baby then give them to their stepmother yet worse things you can do with a baby that you steal yep that you still yeah look if he's not abandoning babies. He's stealing them yeah. That's that's this guy. He's <hes> he mostly abandons mostly polian. He only stole the one baby and it was his baby and it was his baby. I mean most babies are stolen by their parents but yeah so three months. After writing that letter edith managed to get back her baby and successfully filed for divorce she alleged that napoleon sometimes through their small child on the bed and choked her so actually he's not a better <hes> father around hubbard hubbard hubbard didn't beat his kids well he actually this is really a pointless thing. They're terrible parents. Yeah maybe we shouldn't. I know run-up dwell too much on. I don't know why i try to evaluate them. Yeah you know go here but it turns out they're all. I should look for the good guy in l. Ron hubbard rain but this podcast isn't called behind the guys. No no so edith also alleged that at one point her husband threatened to blow her brains out on a crowded city street numerous people who worked with napoleon testified to his constant dalliances with prostitutes and habitual infidelity <hes> now so yeah the the marriage splits up <hes> and at this point in time napoleon's timber businesses and exactly doing well either because it turns out that rather than being a business snus it was just kind of a scam napoleon bought twenty thousand dollars worth of lumber using credit from companies around the country so he would like <unk> by the lumber and like sign a contract saying he would pay them back later with interest and then he would just take the lumber and sell it like individually to people for cash cash but he had no blood stream credit. Yes essentially yeah. He was just driving around fucking would yeah he would sell the wood for cash and just keep moving so that nobody could ever yeah that. That was the whole plan. Oh where'd you guys on the street off. The truck really advanced yeah. He's not a great conman but he's a constant one making telling everybody in fucking king stealing would yes the most traceable crime would thief and fake journalist at this point is his resume and and stole the baby a b wants so by late nineteen o eight many of his creditors had realized they were being fleeced. Matt novak sites article in the tober issue of the pensacola journal covering hills ios lumber fraud. The whereabouts of owen hill said to be the president and general manager of the acri. Hill lumber company is causing considerable anxiety among creditors of the concern and the state and several other lumber number sections. Hill has not been his office since september eighth warrants were issued for hills arrest at the same time. The post office started looking into claims of mail fraud. Which napoleon william hill had also been busy committing charged with check fraud as well <hes> hill spent the fall and winter in one thousand nine hundred on the run dodging law enforcement and creditors gradually angelique made his way to washington d._c. What i'm saying it'd be weighed down by a baby. When you're dodging creditors running up and down the country the wife is she's just like really holding him back. From being the slimy est bag he can be <hes> and and once he's free of his wife and free of his creditors and all of the people that he at least in his lumber business in his check fraud any moves to washington d._c. He drops the first named oliver and starts going by napoleon hill because he's a new man right his job. They'll make it harder to be found yeah so nineteen o nine when he winds up in dc is a time in which cars were still new in very exciting getting to just about everybody. There's a lot of money to be made in the nascent automobile industry and more importantly for mr hill. There was a lot of money to be made in lying to people about the nascent automobile industry in order to understand this. You have to think of cars not as ubiquitous tools. They are today but more like the internet and social media were a decade ago. Scams are always going to be rampant with any new technology doing that sweet spot after it becomes clear how valuable it is but before anyone really understands it so like cars are in that place in nineteen o nine when napoleon hill winds up in d._c. So he joins immediately. An automotive enthusiast group called the automobile club of washington and it inspires him to create his own the organization the automobile college of washington in early nineteen o nine already already fake already not a call just a coup out of college. It's it's a club. What is he going to. I i don't know what is automobile fraud call. Is it a college. Does he trained. Does he learn. It's it's it's a college kind of in the same way trump university sakala okay so they're a little more legit okay. It's a little more legit than trump university so the the idea is that the auto college is a training program that would clip that would teach you how to build cars with six weeks of camp for cars yeah exactly exactly like he's promising graduates. They'll be able to earn between seventy seventy five dollars in two hundred dollars per week which is like really good money and all they have to do is pay to learn how to build cars now the reality of the situation these people were building cars so there is actual learning how to build cars going on here but what napoleon has done is basically set up a car factory. We were in people pay to work there. That's that's that's the business. That's the scam yeah best one yet yes. This is a good ankle. <hes> yeah like there's an actual product. People are presumably learning something <hes> but you're making a bunch of money in not like presumably folks aren't realizing are we just paying to work in a factory. I kinda wanna do like like a coal mining college. I'll teach mike co you. Just gotta mined coal look no. You're not doing it right doing for another few years. You need another few years of coal school. It's like if the washington post rebranded as a journalism school started charging people to write up ed's wow i ah well yeah now so he'll work out a deal with the carter motor corporation in nineteen ten and nineteen nineteen eleven and basically they <hes> that's who he was making cars. Force students were producing vehicles that were then sold by the carter motive company <hes> and you it was a great deal for carter. 'cause they get free labor in napoleon gets free money <hes> in the students. You know you might even think that semi-legitimate because at least the students are gonna learn how to assemble cars and they could presumably get a job elsewhere they didn't they didn't pay for that is an actual job. <hes> uh-huh so presumably this is i would say this is the high point of napoleon hill life as a person who did things that were almost legitimate he's doing. We'll ask awesome capitalist scam here you know it involves slavery it involves new technology and it involves a lot of lying so this is you know he's really he's got the three together beautiful skin but like all great scams that involves slavery it invoked like it's slavery where the the people people who are kind of slaves don't think of themselves that way because they're paying for the right right like slavery servitude so i dunno slavery savory might slavery is a bit far. He's just tricking people into into being employees right and telling them but yeah it's it's. I don't know what you call. People who in this situation it's like running film school and like secretly having the make the new disney film school and secretly had people make new marvel movies and it didn't pay them like yeah so well. He's running..
