Barnum's exhibits to minstrels, circuses, Wild West extravaganzas, and vaudeville. John Springhall gives this topic an international scale by showing the links between European especially British origins of circuses and freak exhibitions and their development in the US. He also highlights the cross-Atlantic dimensions of that mass culture in his explorations of the links between music hall and vaudeville, the American attraction to the Swedish Jenny Lynd, the European fascination with the American Wild West Show, and much else.
The Art and Making of The Greatest Showman
Barnum, an entrepreneur who was known as one of the richest men in America. Hugh Jackman's new movie, "The Greatest Showman," brings to the big screen the spectacle of a story that was Barnum's life. The famous 19th-century entrepreneur dabbled in everything from publishing a newspaper to running a museum. But Barnum's true claim to fame was helping make the circus an explosively popular form of entertainment with his iconic Ringling Bros.
Some of Barnum's entertainment tactics were and are not to be emulated — he used people with disabilities as "human curiosities," he purchased a black woman and supported blackface and, in modern times, his namesake circus was accused of the poor treatment of animals. He's a controversial figure, no doubt.
However Barnum is also remembered for his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen, and his professional advice is often reprinted in books aimed at self-starters. In his own book , "The Art of Money-Getting or Golden Rules for Making Money," Barnum preaches 20 rules that are still applicable today, like preserving and practicing determination.
In addition to outlining attributes and traits of success, Barnum also hashes out concrete business tactics and strategies. In Barnum's book, he preaches about hard work, writing, "Work at it, if necessary, early and late, in season and out of season, not leaving a stone unturned, and never deferring for a single hour that which can be done just as well now.
While that language may be a bit outdated, the idea is not. No task is too menial. More recently, he spoke of his willingness to get on the front lines with his employees to get the job done. I move myself to wherever the biggest problem is in Tesla," Musk recently said during a Tesla earnings call.
He said he had been working in the Gigafactory until the wee hours of the morning, helping diagnose calibration issues. A century ago, Barnum noted the importance of staying informed on the latest inventions and improvements. Today, many of the most successful people in the world also say reading is crucial.
Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Bill Gates goes through 50 books a year , mostly nonfiction. And billionaire tech founder Mark Cuban says he reads three hours every day. Barnum was a believer in time management. Multimillionaire real estate tycoon Barbara Corcoran also says that planning ahead is a key to success.
A century later, having focus is still something to strive for. The truth is, the more kind and liberal a man is, the more generous will be the patronage bestowed upon him. Barnum should have extended his philosophy to those he employed, be they humans or animals.
But the sentiment is one that many modern-day entrepreneurs say they rely on. Elon Musk regularly addresses Tesla customers' issues over Twitter, thanks them and asks for their input. The tech CEO has even tweeted at a single, frustrated customer on a Friday night, showing his commitment to customer service. Robert Wang, inventor of the current kitchen craze Instant Pot, recently revealed how he shows his gratitude toward customers. In all official branding photos for the product, the timer reads , which when spoken out loud, sounds like "I love you" in Mandarin, his native language, according to the New York Times.
