Sure he is famous for his voyages and for discovering the New World, but behind all the history, he was just an amazing salesman.
He started out not knowing where he was going.
When he got there he didn’t know where he was.
When he returned , he didn’t know where he had been.
He did all this on borrowed money and managed to get a repeat order.
