85 Years ago a little boy was born. 8 years later that boy went door to door selling ice cold coca colas, later magazines, after that by the age of 12 had his own established paper route. Immediately after high school, he was drafted into the military where he served honorably until he was discharged. After being discharged, he and his older brother Ben had the opportunity to purchase a small restaurant. It only had four tables and was appropriately titled “The Little Dwarf” Unfortunately; two years after their grand opening his brother Ben died in a plane crash. He continued to grow the business and in his ‘spare time’, he worked on a small creation of his. The “Chicken Sandwich”. Every one had eaten chicken and every one had eaten sandwiches, but for some reason they had never been put together. After 12 years of working on the “creation”, he had perfected it! He went to market; he got it into the mouths of every one he could convince to try it. He even brought one personally to Lady Bird, President Johnson’s wife. Due to its popularity, he trademarked it, Entitled Chick-fil-A! S. Truett Cathy, owner and founder of Chick-fil-A, one of the biggest chicken fast food chains in the U.S. made over a billion dollars in year 2000. That same boy, who went door to door selling coca colas, now owns 2000 restaurants!
Why not you? You could be just as successful as he is.
The most successful entrepreneurs had two things in common strong character and a willingness to work. Some of which character is:
Through looking at their life stories, we see how God prospers the faithful business owner. They made history! So, what about you? Do you want to be a history maker? Find a need in your community, find a way to fill need, find what your good at, and follow that. I am not saying that you will not fail, you probably will 9 time out of 10 but that one time you might hit it big!
You just might be the next billionaire! You might even be the next Donald Trump. Initiative, Wisdom, Determination, Competitiveness, Family and Purpose, these are the things that make an entrepreneurs successful.
