7 Small Business Owners who turned into Billionaires

0 comentarii

While scanning the list of world’s richest people on Forbes, I was astonished to find a good number of entrepreneurs who started as small business owner but with their hard work and commitment, they managed to get to the top. None of them was born with a golden spoon, it was the sweat, savings, schmoozing, creativity and good luck, which have helped these moguls enjoy the positions they have today.

According to a 2002 U.S. Census Bureau survey representing some 16 million-business owners, which is a whopping 55%, were initially funded by personal and family capital, while 11.4% snagged bank loans and 8.8% got going on personal and business credit cards. These stats clearly prove that we can make big achievements on our own…am I right?

To keep your spirits high and motivated towards your small businesses, I bring you a list of seven world-beating entrepreneurs who turned their small business ventures into vast empires.

Let’s get inspired!

1: John Catsimatidis

Owner of the Red Apple Group and aspiring Mayor of New York City.

Age: 59

Net Worth: $2.1 billion

Industry: Supermarkets, Real Estate, Oil


Success Story: He was a son of a kitchen helper who entered the grocery industry in the summer of 1966 after graduating from a high school. Working for an owner of a Manhattan super market, he started taking on more responsibilities.
Four years later, the owner offered him a 50% stake in one of his forthcoming stores over the next 10 months at a rate of $1,000 per month. Within a few months, the store’s sales doubled, and Catsimatidis was earning a profit of $500 per week (not bad for a 20-year-old back then). By charming the vendors to let him buy on credit a year later he managed to launch the Red Apple Group, a chain of grocery stores that now includes Gristede’s, Sloan’s and Red Apple. By the age of 25, he owned 10 stores, all debt-free.

2: Harold Hamm

Chairman and chief executive officer Continental Resources & Hiland Holdings

Age: 62

Net Worth: $4.4 billion

Industry: Oil and Gas exploration


Success Story:Harold Hamm was youngest of 13 children to a couple of working as cotton pickers from Purcell, Okla. He worked school jobs as a gas station attendant to supplement his parents’ incomes. In 1966, two years after graduating from high school, for the first time Hamm stepped in a business deal. With a bank loan co-signed by a friend, he purchased a single truck, the main asset of a new oil-and-gas exploration-services business. Two years later, the company changed its name to Continental Resources. Hamm now owns 72% of the outstanding shares in the New York Stock Exchange.

3: Oprah Winfrey

A renowned producer, magazine owner and TV host

Age: 54

Net Worth: $2.5 billion

Industry: Media/Entertainment


Success Story:The accidental daughter of two Mississippi teenagers, Winfrey faced poverty and physical abuse from an early age. She won speech making and beauty contests and eventually earned a scholarship to Tennessee State University. She was the first black female news anchor at Nashville’s WLAC-TV and at 29, she was contracted to host a Chicago morning television show called AM Chicago, later re-named The Oprah Winfrey Show. This owner of Harpo Studios, producer of films and TV shows like Dr. Phil show and the Rachel Ray show was a millionaire by age 32. Other Oprah ventures include the cable television network Oxygen (purchased in 2007 by NBC for $925 million) and publications O, The Oprah Magazine and O at Home.

4: Sandy Weill

Owner of Citigroup


Net Worth: $1.4 billion

Industry: Banking


Success Story:This creator of giant Citigroup, was born in Brooklyn - New York use to gather pennies to achieve his dream. After graduating from Cornell (on scholarship), Weill took a job as a runner for Bear Stearns and studied for his stockbrokers’ licensing exam at night. A few years later, in 1960, he and three friends pooled their savings (an estimated $200,000) to open their own brokerage firm, called “Carter Berlind and Weill.” Two decades of acquisitions later, their Travelers Group was the industry’s second-largest brokerage and in 1998, Travelers Group merged with Citicorp to make what is now known as Citigroup.

5: George Soros

Owner of Quantum Investment Fund

Age: 77

Net Worth: $9 billion

Industry: Finance


Success Story: Born in Hungary, Soros and his parents came to England in 1930. While working as a railway porter and waiter, he got himself through the London School of Economics. Like Sandy Weil, Soros also socked away a few pennies to jump-start his entrepreneurial career. Soros moved to the United States in 1956 and found work at several investment firms, including Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder, where he worked his way up to vice-president of the company. After running several offshore investment funds, he launched his own investment firm with colleague Jim Rogers, which has it has grown into the multibillion-dollar Quantum Fund.

6: J.K. Rowling

Author of “Harry Potter”

Age: 42

Net Worth: $1 billion

Industry: Media/Entertainment


Success Story:Sometimes sheer talent and determination is enough to carve your path to success. As a single mother on welfare in Scotland, Rowling began writing the first Harry Potter novel in Edinburgh cafés whenever she could get her infant daughter to sleep. After being rejected by 12 publishing houses, Bloomsbury, a small publisher in London, offered an advance of 1,500 pounds (about $2,400) even one its editors, Barry Cunningham, advised Rowling to get a day job. The following year, U.S. publishing rights to the first Potter book sold for $105,000. Rowling has since sold nearly 400 million copies worldwide, and is the only author on the Forbes list of the richest people in the world.

7: Kirk Kerkorian

President/CEO of Tracinda Corporation

Age: 90

Net Worth: $16 billion

Industry: Investments


Success Story:Old-fashioned bartering helped put Kirk as the richest person in Los Angeles and rank 41 on the list of richest people of the world. This farmer’s son use to look after famous female aviator Pancho Barnes’ cattle in return for flying lessons in late 1930’s. During World War II, he took a job with the Royal Air Force transporting planes from their Canadian factory to England at $1,000 per month. This job was quiet risky as the planes weren’t designed to withstand the long trip or the harsh weather. With savings from his wartime job, Kerkorian purchased Trans International Airlines for $60,000 in 1947 (with some additional financing.) He later sold it to Transamerica for $104 million in stock and now his private investment firm, Tracinda, now owns 53% of MGM Mirage and is known as the richest person in the Los Angeles.

So guys, don’t give up and keep on working hard, who knows you might also outshine like these business tycoons who once were small business owners.

The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period!

0 comentarii

Marketing a website isn't particularly difficult. It's usually just a matter of knowing what to do, how to do it and having the skills and time to get it done. With that said, marketing a website isn't particularly easy either. There are so many factors and variables in play that at any given time that the job can be quite overwhelming. Obviously I can't address the issue of whether or not you have the skills or time, but I can help you out with the "what to do" piece of the puzzle.

I've always been a lover of checklists, especially when it comes to getting things done. Especially when it comes to remembering what things need to be done! So over the last several years I've been putting together checklists for all kinds of things pertaining to website marketing.

Below is my master website marketing checklist covering over 400 specific items over 23 topics. These topics include things such as website development, SEO, usability, accessibility, etc. This list doesn't cover any "how tos," which are essential ingredients to successful online marketing, but sometimes you need to first know what to do so you can then discover how to do it.

For the sake of brevity, I have kept each check point to its briefest form providing very little explanation. I don't cover why any particular item is included, how important it might be, or what it even means. This is just the checklist in its rawest form.

Over the next couple of weeks I'll provide some additional explanation and insights to the lists below. And since this list is always a work in progress, any additional thoughts and insights are welcome. I'm always adding and removing things as I see fit. Which brings me to one more note: many items are included here based purely on my own preferences and by no means constitute an absolute truth or necessity.

Miliardarii internetului

0 comentarii

La inceput, a fost Ideea. Au urmat multe ore de lucru in garaj pentru ca ideea sa se transforme in averi de miliarde de dolari. Din simple proiecte pornite intr-o incapere obscura, s-au nascut companii recunoscute mondial, relateaza Forbes.

sergei-brin-larry-page-y-su-invento.jpg34 de inventatori, valoare totala averi de 109.7 miliarde dolari

In noiembrie 2007, o actiune Google era cotata la suma record de 740 dolari, multumita celor doi lideri ai companiei, Sergei Brin si Larry Page.

In urma cu zece ani, cei doi renuntau la scoala in favoarea proiectului care avea sa ii faca miliardari: gigantul motor de cautare Google.

Conform publicatiei Forbes, Sergei are o avere de 18.7 miliarde iar Larry are in conturi 18.6 miliarde dolari.

Pe lista intocmita de publicatia americana se afla si fondatorul site-ului Amazon, Jeffrey Bezos, plasat pe locul al treilea cu o avere de 8,2 miliarde dolari.

In 1999, Marc Benioff era un director executiv bine platit la Oracle (cea mai mare companie de software pentru afaceri din lume). A explicat atunci unui reporter ca ar prefera sa munceasca pentru el insusi decat pentru altcineva. Acum nu numai ca a reusit, dar este el insusi un miliardar, cu ajutorul unei oportunitati neexploatate pana la acea data: afacerile bazate pe relatiile cu clientii.

Solutia gasita de Benioff,, ofera noi modalitati de a sorta si indexa relatiile cu clientii. Produsul este mai simplu si chiar mai ieftin, furnizat pe internet si ocoleste, desigur, in acest fel, taxele care s-ar fi aplicat instalatiei in sine si intretinerii ei.

In scurt timp de la lansare, portofoliul firmei cuprindea clienti de talie mondiala: Staples, Cisco sau Advanced Micro Devices.

Staples este cel mai mare retailer de produse pentru birou din lume. Compania are vanzari de 27 miliarde dolari si reprezentante in 27 de tari pe glob, inclusiv pe continentul asiatic si in Australia. In iulie 2008, Staples a achizitionat Corporate Express, unul dintre cei mai mari furnizori de produse de birou pentru intreprinderi si institutii.

Conform site-ului, Cisco (SUA) este lider mondial in domeniul productiei de echipamente de retea, cu o cota de piata ce depaseste 60% si o cifra de afaceri de 25 miliarde dolari in 2005.

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) este unul dintre marii producatori de microprocesoare, placi de baza si procesoare grafice pentru servere si calculatoare personale.

Forbes a estimat averea lui Benioff la 1,2 miliarde in martie.

Logodnica lui Omidyar (eBay), un colectionar impatimit al ambalajelor de la bomboanele Pez, celebre in SUA pentru forma capacului (un personaj din desene animate), nu putea sa gaseasca un loc de unde sa cumpere sau sa vanda astfel de piese.

De profesie programator, Pierre Omidyar a construit o pagina web numita “eBay” care sa ii confere logodnicei sale o platforma potrivita pentru ceea ce isi dorea.

“eBay a gasit o modalitate prin care sa poata reduce costurile tranzactiilor si a creat o piata de tip low-cost, pe care oamenii nu o putesera utiliza pana in acel moment in scopuri comerciale, spune Andrew Waldeck, partener la firma Innosight, o firma de consultanta specializata in inventii.

Milioane jucarii de plus, precum si cartonase rare cu jucatori de baseball au inceput sa fie scoase la licitatie mai tarziu, transformandu-l pe Omidyar intr-un om extrem de bogat, cu o avere apreciata de revista Forbes la 7.7 miliarde dolari in martie.

Jeffrey Skoll, primul angajat full-time (cu norma intreaga) de la eBay, si totodata primul presedinte al acestui site, avea, in martie, o avere apreciata de Forbes la 3,6 miliarde dolari.

Fostul director executiv de la, Meg Whitman, are o avere de 1.3 miliarde dolari.

Profesorul John Sperling a descoperit un public neglijat, concretizat in cei care chiuleau de la cursurile sale. In timp ce preda stiintele umane in statul San Jose, a ajuns la concluzia ca scolile traditionale (si cu un nivel de invatamant ridicat) neglijeau nevoile pe care le simt studentii “mai putin conformisti”. Practic, erau prea putine ore de curs care sa corespunda programului incarcat pe care il au adultii cu slujbe si familie, dar care si-ar fi dorit totusi, sa continue studiile.

In 1976, Sperling a infiintat Universitatea din Phoenix, care este acum o subsidiara pentru Apollo Group.

Prima clasa a avut 8 studenti. In timpul ultimilor 25 de ani, Apollo a anuntat ca a avut 345.000 de studenti care cautau sa obtina licente la institutia sa. Cei mai multi au venit atrasi de internet, unde Apollo tinea cursuri online inca din 1999. Jeff Silber, un analist la BMO Capital Markets, apreciaza ca in jur de 75% dintre studentii Universitatatii Apollo din Phoenix au urmat cursurile online.

Revista americana Forbes apreciaza ca averea lui John Sperling ajungea in martie la 1,7 miliarde dolari. Fiul lui John lucreaza la Apollo si este pe lista alcatuita de Forbes cu miliardari pe internet, avand o avere similara cu cea a parintelui.
