Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, I guess many in Business consider him as a godfather. 

Jobs is one of the most affectionate entrepreneurs of all time. He was grounded with world-class innovation, which has given too much to the world. 

The now revolutionary Apple started with two men in a garage. Years later, we all know it as a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees.

Steve Jobs Success story

This man has one of the strangest stories I have heard.

I mean, can you imagine the pain of being fired from your company where yahoo has put too many efforts, devoted years of your life to build a giant company. Almost unbelievably, Steve Jobs was fired from the very company he began.

The dismissal made him realize that his passion for his work exceeded the disappointment of failure. Further ventures such as NeXT and Pixar eventually led Jobs back to the CEO position at Apple.

JK Rowling

My forever love,

I really found bend towards creativity because of this lady, one of the best person you can learn the art of imagination.

Though, one thing I am going to gift my children is Harry Potter books (One the most fabulous imagination ever)

It’s one of my favorite success stories started from the humble beginnings about someone who has consistently been among Europe’s wealthiest persons – after her books and movies released.

JK Rowling

If you ever get failure and thought to give. Pause and reflect why you started!

JK has never given up trying – even after rejections from 12 publishers. And that’s a classic tale of motivation and mindset that’s needed to reach the top bestsellers in the history of literature.

I think it’s finally settled; success stories are built on the back of great work and too much will power, not just daydreaming during the job.

Most creative geniuses of the 20th century were once fired from a newspaper because he was told he lacked creativity.

XD. Once, even I was fired from a company. I can feel the pain. 

But it’s better to move on—this man something big in his mind. Walt had started building characters, wait … most original characters. Which led him to a vast fortune! I mean, who doesn’t know mickey mouse. 

Disney formed his first animation company, which was called Laugh-O-Gram Films. He raised $15,000 for the company but eventually was forced to close Laugh-O-Gram, following the close of an important distributor partner.

Desperate and out of money, Disney found his way to Hollywood and faced even more criticism and failure until finally, his first few classic films started to skyrocket in popularity. Disney went on to win 22 academy awards (the most ever!) plus four honoraries, taking the tally to 26.  Walt is even one of the most oscar-nominated person in history with a total of 59.

Sara Blakely

Long Story short. Sara has built an empire from $5000  to $5 million. Ups billions!

I like Spanx. I guess every modern girl does.  Blakely started her career as a salesperson, selling fax machines door to door when she came up with the idea for Spanx. The idea came from cutting the feet off of pantyhose and wearing them out. So women can feel comfortable wearing all the panty stuff.

 I found Sara a pure entrepreneur soul. It’s fine, it’s fine to make a mistake. And believe me, I am learning this skill too.  The worst thing that can happen is you become memorable.

And it’s also fine to not know of everything. Afterall the biggest lesson I had learned from Sara is to hire your weakness. Unless you are a one-person army, also, ensure that you do things differently from everyone else and unique. I do that one, jeez!

One of the smart moves of Sara Blakely, I found she owns 100% of the company and has self-funded the company since the beginning.

You can sleep well at night without debts, and gave billions in your account that is your own.
