Abercrombie and Fitch

Abercrombie and Fitch hasn’t always been a clothing store for teenagers. It was originally founded in 1892 by David T. Abercrombie and Ezra H. Fitch. David was, a former prospector, miner, trapper, and engineer, and Ezra was a lawyer, who loved being out side. David T. Abercrombie owned his own camping equipment store in New York. Ezra started off as just a costumer at David’s camping equipment store, but once they realized that they shared the same interest they decided to open a sporting goods store called Abercrombie and Fitch. ( I think that you need to tie your first two sentences together so the beginning doesnt seem so fragmented. Plus, maybe you should add something about how good the company was doing in order to transition into how hard the depression was on them.)
After the great depression in 1933 Abercrombie and Fitch’s profits and sales fell 2.5 million dollars. Even later on in that year the company continued to lose more money and management could not continue to attract customers. Even with the ability to have television ads, they still couldn’t bring in enough money to keep the company going. In 1976 the company declared bankruptcy, and in 1977 Abercrombie and Fitch shuts down all business operation.
Many people wonder, what caused Abercrombie and Fitch to have such a terrible down fall during the 1970’s? The answer to this question is simple. The Abercrombie and Fitch sporting goods didn’t have all the factors to become a tipping point. A tipping point is the point where an epidemic gets just big enough to spread. (I tend to think that after reaching the tipping point, an epidemic explodes, it doesn't just spread.)The first factor that the company didn’t have was the three kinds of people needed to make it succeed. These three people are the Connecters, Mavens, and Salesmen. Another name for these three people is the Law of the Few. These are the people that everyone knows and usually whatever they say people are going to believe. They work together to make an epidemic happen. In the late 1990’s when Abercrombie and Fitch was a sporting goods store, they didn’t have those people with the unusual set of social gifts to make the Abercrombie and Fitch epidemic happen successfully.
Another reason why Abercrombie and Fitch the sporting goods store wasn’t successful was because they didn’t have the stickiness factor that the clothing store has today. Back in the 1970’s they didn’t have anything that would draw attention to new costumers and make them want to buy their product. They didn’t have that special something that would make them different from other sporting good stores. The Abercrombie and Fitch today have both the people needed to make and epidemic happen and the stickiness factor to keep it from falling.
In 1992 Mike Jefferies became the Chief Executive Officer, President, and Chairman of the Board for Abercrombie and Fitch. Jefferies is said to be the man who created the new look for Abercrombie and Fitch. He said he wanted Abercrombie and Fitch to “sizzle with sex” (Jefferies). He is the man who decided to change Abercrombie and Fitch from a sporting goods store to a clothing store. Jefferies is a very important factor to the tipping point for the Abercrombie and Fitch today. He is what is known as the maven of the Law of the Few. A maven is someone who is very knowledgeable about the company and of other activities that may be going. Mike Jefferies is the CEO for the company

Very good start, I think that if you keep up the pace throughout the rest of the paper, you'll be fine.
you have ok transitions just try to make them smoother tie each paragraph and sentence together without using basic transitions.
