Andrew Carnegie | Napoleon Hill Foundation

Andrew Carnegie was born in Scotland in 1835 and his parents moved the family to the United States when Carnegie was 12 years old.

At the age of ten Carnegie began working in a cotton mill. Later, he worked as a messenger boy for a telegraph company. Carnegie’s wages were $1.25 per week. By the age of 13 Carnegie learned to run a steam engine and his wages increased to $1.80 per week. When asked of his early schooling he replied, “None, except such as I gave myself”.
