Let’s be honest, sometimes life as an entrepreneur can seem fairly bleak. You don’t always know where your next payment is going to come from or whether you will be able to pay your suppliers on time.
That’s why from time to time it is important to read about successful entrepreneurs and their path to success. This great article on Inc. shares ten great stories about successful entrepreneurs such as:
Liane Weintraub and Shannan Swanson who saw a gap in the market and started an organic baby food business. After four years the company began to turn a profit and is on track for sales of $2.5 million this year.
Scott Harrison whose charity has provided access to clean, safe drinking water for 1,794,983 people in 19 countries and saved countless lives in the process.
Joanna Meiseles who was inspired to start a business after taking her son for a haircut. Her hairdressing salon for kids now has 63 outlets in the US with plans to expand to the UK.
Chris Zane who, while still attending school, took over the lease of a bike shop that was going out of business and made $56,000 in sales in his first year. This year he is expecting to bring in $21 million.
Oren Bloostein who quit his job in corporate retail and opened his first coffee shop in New York circa 1986. His business is now worth nearly $10 million.
Hopefully these stories will inspire you to keep going along your entrepreneurial path or to embark on a journey that will change your life for the better.
