Insights on Wealth
From Trash to Smash
If you're a start-up or considering one, don't think its going to be all sweet from the get go.
For every business that shoots to the top theres a heap on the scrap pile below.
And of the stars there wasn't instant success; it took time, effort and try, try again persistence.
So how lame were some before they hit the big time?
Microsoft - started as an obscure piece of software for interpreting programming language
Apple - a weak computer that needed the user to build a box, and was then really only a TV
Facebook - from college students stalking each other to the world doing the same
Google - was originally just another search engine, now we don't search we Google; luckily the name was changed from BackRub!
AirBNB - was an idea that people could sleep on air beds in other peoples lounge rooms, though of as air, bed & breakfast, hence the name
These goliaths started out as minnows, but they drove on, persisted, evolved and became successful. Every new business needs the same dedication to the task.
