A hero of mine passed away a few weeks ago, and I found this video of Al Amatuzio, in his own words, to be most inspiring. I’d like to share it with you.
Al Amatuzio, known as “Big Al”, was a man of small stature, but of a character as big as the sky. Having only met him once, I was surprised that this “bigger than life” man, and pioneer, was six inches shorter than me, and I’m not very tall!
His caring, and tenacity was a sight to behold and his kindness was very contagious. When Al walked into a room, everyone could tell he was in charge and he would set the agenda. All eyes and ears were on this business giant.
AL WOULD NEVER LIE TO YOU
My wife said to me one time after an issue at my “real” job, having to do with integrity, and someone not telling the truth.
She said; “Neil, why don’t you try and make Amsoil your full-time business. Al Amatuzio has never, nor would never lie to you like the other person just did.”
Those words rung out to me then, and still do today.
What Al said, is what Al did, he was a man of his word
What Al said, is what Al did, he was a man of his word. That is what I know to be true. He created a business built on trust and caring, as well as good old common and sound business sense. No favorites, no lofty and unattainable goals. If you work hard, you will see results, and be rewarded accordingly!
I am still on my Amsoil growth plan and have experienced the successes for which I have ascribed. After 22 years, I can still say that “Big” Al Amatuzio kept his word to me and to the Amsoil distributor force up until the day he died.
I will miss you Al Amatuzio, you are the biggest man that I ever met in the business world, and thank you for the business and industry that you pioneered.
Passing the torch
“Big” AL passed the torch to two capable and upstanding leaders. Alan Amatuzio, Jr, and Dean Alexander, they will bring the next generation of Amsoil Dealers into their profitable future.
Here is a video, less than two minutes, of Al Amatuzio, in his own words. Very inspiring and true!
