Have you had the misfortune of getting a cut lately? Did you reach for your box of band-aids? Who is the inventor of those little miracle bandages? His name is Earle Dickson and he worked for Johnson & Johnson. So the story goes Mr. Dickson came up with idea because his wife kept cutting herself in the kitchen. So he created the bandages for her that she could use herself! By the time of his death J & J was selling over $30,000,000 worth of Band-Aids each year! I wonder how much he made!!!
