What do you think about all these billionaires?
First of all, thanks for sending this interesting link of . I especially enjoyed reading the “Why Didn’t I Think Of That” billionaires list.
I don’t have a strong opinion about billionaires or millionaires. If you really ask me, I would say good for them. I love this “Why Didn’t I Think Of That” billionaires list because they have certainly put their creative hat on. I can imagine what their friends or family might say when they first started with their crazy ideas. Beanie babies? High priced coffee? Chocolate spread?
I doubted their goal was to become billionaires when they first started their business. Money came naturally while they were building something that they were truly passionated about.
Here are a few billion dollar ideas that put a smile on my face:
Nutella by Michelo Ferroro & Family (10 Billion)
I love Nutella and I have one at home! I never knew that this is a billion dollar idea. Good for them!
Ralph Lauren by Ralph Lauren (5 Billion)
I never knew Ralph Lauren was born in the Bronx and he is the son of Russian immigrant. Yeh! Another imtreprenuer! How brilliant!Putting a little horse on a polo shirt and sell for 50 bucks. Why not?
Beanie Babies by Ty Warner (4.5 Billion)
Ty Warner, this college drop out started his career selling plush toys. I bet he didn’t expect he could sell the stuffed bean bags shaped like cute animals with precious names in billions.
Red Bull by Yoovidhya and Mateschitz (6.1 Billion Combined)
Another product that I actually consume from time to time. I can never imagine Red Bull can made someone billionaires. Why not? J
Geox shoes by Moretti Polegato (3 Billion)
I have never heard of this brand name, but I found it really funny that Moretti started his company because he hates smelly feet. Who doesn’t? The differce is he did something about it and we didn’t.
Starbucks by Howard Schultz (1.1 Billion)
Son of blue-collar parents raised in housing projects in Brooklyn, Howard started with nothing and now put Starbucks on every corner in America.
Hope you enjoy reading this list as much as I did.
