Writer and Lecturer
After succeeding in life insurance sales; and becoming the Top Salesman for 20 years with Fidelity Mutual, he met Dale Carnegie. Carnegie encouraged Bettger to write his first best-selling books How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in Selling and How I Multiplied My Income and Happiness in Selling. How I Raised Myself... was translated into over a dozen languages, including Hungarian, Portuguese, French, Danish, German, Polish, Swedish, Spanish, Serbian, Romanian, Japanese, Russian, Dutch, British English, Norwegian, Italian and Finnish. Bettger also gave a series of lectures to Jaycees organizations nationwide with Dale Carnegie.
Frank Bettger wrote a last book, entitled How I learned the secrets of success in selling in 1960. More of an autobiography, it focused more on his life and the lessons he learned during his short career in baseball. He reflected how those lessons learned at an early age helped to mold him into the success that he was to become.

“[The pleasures of writing] correspond exactly to the pleasures of reading, the bliss, the felicity of a phrase is shared by writer and reader: by the satisfied writer and the grateful reader, orwhich is the same thingby the artist grateful to the unknown force in his mind that has suggested a combination of images and by the artistic reader whom his combination satisfies.”

“The most durable thing in writing is style, and style is the most valuable investment a writer can make with his time. It pays off slowly, your agent will sneer at it, your publisher will misunderstand it, and it will take people you have never heard of to convince them by slow degrees that the writer who puts his individual mark on the way he writes will always pay off.”
—Raymond Chandler (18881959)
