The Money Series – Why Didn’t I Think of That Billionaires



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: 

 NutellaNutella 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.

    This is great, who would think that making stuffed toys would lead to that much fame and fortune? I think this list reminds us all to follow our passion with enthusiasm and good things will follow.
