Did you know that 960 of the world’s 1,426 billionaires are self-made? Most started with little more than an idea and a strong work ethic. That means there’s nothing preventing you from doing the same or a least reaching the millionaire mark.
Checkout this infographic on Entrepreneur.com. Five self-made billionaires are profiled in terms of where they started and the businesses they’ve launched. Did you know Mark Cuban, owner of the Mavericks, got his start selling garbage bags; Eric Lefkovsky, co-founder of Groupon sold carpets; and Richard Branson, founder of all things Virgin, sold Christmas Trees?
They all had very inauspicious beginnings and all went on to reach amazing levels of success with a variety of businesses.
The main difference between self-made billionaires and the majority of people? They believed in themselves, they took risks and they kept going.
