Entrepreneurs are in the news. They always are when people are losing their jobs. Governments suddenly want to encourage new businesses to create employment Having launched five businesses, I know how hard it is and the risks involved. Therefore, I always admire those people who develop an idea and follow it through to develop a business.
Amazing Entrepreneurs is the book that I have written on those who launched a business and made millions. Surprisingly, many of them were school drop outs and had little education. Thomas Edison, who founded General Electric, was a great example. He arrived in New York broke and had to borrow a dollar to get a meal. How he succeeded is a great story which I have told in the book.
Andrew Carnegie went from rags to riches in 20 years. Coco Chanel went from the poorhouse to power in Paris. They are all amazing and inspirational stories that give us clues on how to succeed.
The founder of McDonald’s, Ray Kroc, was a pianist and salesman. For years, he had dreamed of being very successful. But, he was 54 years of age before he found how to do it. Read the story in the book and also see others in the series at the Amazing People Club.
