Billion Dollar Companies That All Started From A Dream

Cocoa Cola was invented by a doctor πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ, and the recipe along with the copper pot and the wooden spoon πŸ₯„ which were used to make it were bought from the doctor by a pharmacist for US$500. You can’t blame the doctor because all he needed at the time to clear his debt was US$500, but the pharmacist had a vision. Today Cocoa Cola is worth US$188 Billion. The McDonald’s brothers were bought out by the milkshake machine sales man who they took on as a third partner after he had sold them 8 milkshake makers. All they were selling at the time in their small single restaurant were cheeseburgers πŸ”, sodas, and milkshakes. However the line was out the door and wrapped around the building. The milk shake machine salesman πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό had vision. McDonalds is now the #1 fast food franchise in the world 🌎 and is worth US$100 Billion. Google was founded September 4, 1998 by Larry Paige and Sergey Brin in a friends garage in California. Google is the biggest brand in the world 🌎 today with a net worth of US$229.2 Billion. When the class where Fred Wallace, the founder of FedEx was in, was asked by their college professor to submit a paper πŸ“ outlining a comprehensive and workable business plan for a start up, Wallace handed in his paper, and was told that FedEx was impossible, and that it would never work. We all see how that turned out right?? Adolph Dassler, founder of Adidas, began making sports shoes in his mother’s wash room along with his older brother Rudolph who founded Puma. Nike was founded by a coach and a student at the University of Oregon in 1964, and was originally a distributor for asics, the Japanese footwear company. But when I say distributor I really mean out of the trunk of their car πŸš—. Today Nike is the biggest apparel company in the world 🌎 grossing over US$30 Billion per year.

It’s obvious that it’s not where you start, but it’s how far you have made up your mind to go. There are countless other success stories where people came from nothing to something with only an idea πŸ’‘, their work ethic, and their Dream. Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Ralph Lauren, Dominoes Pizza, Papa John’s, KFC…You name it. But one thing I know for sure, is that it wasn’t easy. I wasn’t there, but I can tell. Many business owners can tell you stories about when they were working on their dream and nobody believed in them. Their lights were cut off, their car πŸš— was repossessed, they lost again and again and again, but they kept running πŸƒ towards their Dream. Life will yield to you when you don’t give up. When you are working on your Dream, especially if it’s one that most people won’t understand, just keep in mind that it’s going to be hard, but in the end it will be worth it. Easy is not an option. Defeats, disappointments, failures and setbacks are inevitable. Challenges are going to hit you by the truckloads, but if it was easy, then everybody would be skinny, rich, and happy. All I’m saying is don’t give up on your Dream. When the hard times come, remember they did not come to stay, they come so that they can pass. Whatever your Dream is that you are working towards, and working on, don’t give up. Many of the wealthiest people we know, found their greatest success, just one step, beyond their greatest failure. God Bless You and Thanks πŸ™ for reading πŸ“–.
