It’s been some time since I last posted on this website. I’ve been focused on my professional security website, however, I would like to write some content regarding another passion of mine: entrepreneurship. What I’d like to do today in this blog is go through some of today’s entrepreneurs that inspire. Whether they inspire you to pursue your dreams or to use their products or services, they deserve some recognition. Here is a short list of some of the world’s most inspiring entrepreneurs.
Elon Musk – Tesla, SpaceX, Solar City
For anyone in the world who follows entrepreneurship, it should come as no surprise that Elon Musk is featured on this list. He’s an entrepreneur who has been working tirelessly to make his dreams a reality for over a decade now, but has only recently gotten the credit he deserves. Why is that? I believe it is because his dream of sustainable, clean energy sources is becoming more viable as technology advances, and that we are looking for cleaner solutions to today’s energy problems.
Musk is truly special in the initiatives that he is spearheading. He founded SpaceX in the hope of propelling normal citizens into space; he helped to create Solar City in an attempt to revolutionize the way the world is powered; and he is changing the landscape of the automobile with Tesla, possible his most famous entrepreneurial endeavor. Elon Musk is out to change the world, and at this rate, he is going to succeed.
Jeff Bezos – Amazon
While you may not recognize Jeff Bezos’ name at first, you’ve certainly used his product. Bezos founded Amazon in 1995 with the intention of simply joining the Internet boom of the time. Bezos was probably unaware that the business would take off the way that it did. Initially, the website only sold books, but it eventually grew into something much larger. Today, Amazon sells approximately 480 million products to millions of people the world over. Bezos and his company have single-handedly changed the landscape of retail by making e-commerce a viable and, in most cases, preferred option for consumers. We no longer have to wait in long lines at brick and mortar stores or deal with human sales representatives. We simply need a smartphone, computer or tablet and a stable Internet connection and we can purchase virtually anything in the world. E-commerce is expected to triple this year alone; Bezos has sparked a revolution that has given the largest retail stores in the world a run for their money and has revolutionized commerce in general. He continually innovates Amazon as a company and widens its selections and options in order to be as versatile as possible.
