I've been on a "people I admire" kick lately in this blog. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Richard Branson, just to make us all feel like total slackers and envious that no matter what we do, we Yanks won't ever receive his title of Sir... or the female equivalent, Dame. So royally unfair! I also devoted a past blog to my new fave designer, decorator, Dame of Making Deals with Target: the amazing Joanna Gaines. Love her... and her good taste and savvy business skills! Then there was a blog – What Would Jeffrey Say? – where I kinda gushed about Jeff Bezos, because who hasn't done that at some point? Started in his garage and now, well, Amazon. Last week, I mentioned J.K. Rowling and others who've built empires or something extraordinary. So in keeping with that theme, this week I'm looking at famous entrepreneurs and their accomplishments.
What do Tony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey (did I really need to use her last name?), Jeff Bezos, Barbara Corcoran and Walt Disney have in common? Yes, they're all featured in my blog this week! Very exciting! They're also all super successful – or were, since Walt Disney now probably resides in the Magic Kingdom in the sky – though clearly his legacy lives on. But besides that? I think it's safe to say that they're all visionaries. Legends in their own time! They created their own niche by filling a need people didn't even know they had.
Famous Entrepreneurs Who Impacted Our Culture!
Want a better TV talk show with a relatable, down-to-earth (female) host? Tune in to Oprah! Need a self-help guru who can make a difference in your life? Hello, Tony Robbins! Hate shopping at the store, want stuff delivered to your door? Jeffrey can help with that! Looking for an incredible success story that starts with straight D's in school and ends with a mega $5 billion real estate empire, plus an amazing Twitter feed? Start following Barbara Corcoran! How about an escape from reality into a world of fantasy? Thanks Walt Disney!
Despite having made their fortunes in vastly different ways, they all did so on their own terms and by doing what they were good at. Those needs that people didn't realize they had? It's hard to imagine living without them being fulfilled now. No Amazon, no Disneyland, no Oprah (no last name needed!)? Inconceivable!
Most of us in the world of small business will remain here for our entire career. And there's nothing wrong with that! I love it here! But I do like looking to those few who take something small and make it huge, giant, an empire! It's not easy and it's not without big risk, so I admire that. You may not have visions of running an empire, but you may want to take your business to the next level, which is something I can help with!
