A phrase so often used, it gives inspiration to millions of people around the world to come up with a bright idea, get some crowd funding and strike it huge. The truth is though, there isn’t any such thing as an overnight success. As Biz Stone, the co-founder of Twitter famously said:
“TIMING, PERSEVERANCE, AND TEN YEARS OF TRYING WILL EVENTUALLY MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS.” – BIZ STONE
Of the famous and successful CEO’s we see today, they all put in tireless hours of blood, sweat and tears to make their dreams come to fruition. Elon Musk for example; he is well known for SpaceX, Tesla and co-founding PayPal, but before these ventures he had already struck it big before the age of 30. Him and his younger brother Kimbal worked hard to create a software company called Zip2, which they sold to Compaq for around $220 Million in 1999.
It takes determination, action and consistency to make any dream into goals, and a successful flourishing business. Thanks to an infographic created by Essay Expert, let’s look at eight CEO’s who hit it big before 30.
