Paul Orfalea, the founder of Kinkos, discussed building a winning business.  Paul who credits his success to motivating employees, taking care of customers and balancing the budget, grew his business with commonsense and foresight from a single branch in Isla Vista to a multinational company.  With $2 billion in sales and more than 1,200 locations, with 23,000 employees in 10 different countries, Paul was named the best company to work for three years in a row by Fortune Magazine.  In 2004, he sold the company to FedEx who renamed FedEx Kinkos and now FedEx Office.  Despite everything, Paul credits his success in life to having a good family and raising children.  We are pleased to have him as a guest speaker at our Rotary.
