By Alan Heib
Here are just a few of those people that are more than just a household name.
Steve Jobs –
If you’re not familiar with this name…oh who am I kidding? Everyone is familiar with this name. Jobs dropped out after one semester of college, although he continued working as a summer employee with
|Steve Wozniak at Hewlett Packard. His real beginning started when he convinced Wozniak to start a company to market a homemade computer that Wozniak had designed for personal use. After this particular incident, there|
was a long road for Jobs, including creating or helping to create some of the most used technology on the planet. As one of the founders of Apple as well as other billion dollar companies, Jobs is now recognized by Fortune as one of the most successful and famous entrepreneurs.
Vince McMahon –
At the age of 12, Vince McMahon met his real father, who was the promoter of Capitol Wrestling Company. This would prove to be an inspiration to Vince. Although he started out as a traveling salesman, Vince was hungry to follow in his father’s footsteps and finally convinced his father to let him enter the company. Vince began
|working in Maine and was not well known at all. Today, Vince is not only one of the most successful and famous entrepreneurs there are, but he is also chairman of WWE or World Wrestling Entertainment as well|
as being the majority shareholder. He also has a major part in the WCW and the ECW. Fans tune in continuously to check up on Vince’s self-based character and the many wrestlers that Vince has found and managed through the years.
Oprah Winfrey –
Quite possibly one of the most famous people in the world, Oprah Winfrey made her way onto the list of the most famous entrepreneurs and shot right up to the top. After dropping out of high school, she got a job at the age of 19 as a reporter. She stayed with one television station for a while before she switched to WJZ-TV in Baltimore. Apparently she impressed someone, because soon after that she got a job hosting their chat show called, ‘People are Talking.’ 1985 brought Oprah an Oscar for the movie, ‘The Color Purple.’ After that, Oprah was offered a television show, now famous as ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ She is now estimated to be worth about $1.5 billion dollars! Now that is going from humble beginnings to super stardom!
