You could say that C.C. Filson happened to be in the right place at the right time. But his reliability, strong work ethic, and honest values are also what helped him become a successful businessman.

He took the time to listen to his customers. These are attributes that made him successful.

This meant that thousands of fortune hunters were stampeding into Seattle and headed north.

Imagine a group of fishermen on a boat, hoping to catch enough fish to support their families. They have to work – rain or shine – to make sure they don’t go hungry.

He brought his ideas to life by creating waterproof rain gear for people like his father. Continue Reading…
