Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Flipboard 0 The entrepreneurial spirit is all about being able to dream of something and make it happen. Too many people think about something without acting on it. These five figures have done exactly what they needed to in order to achieve their goals. In other words, they made dreams into a reality. We’re going to discuss five entrepreneurs who every young businessperson should look up to for inspiration. Evan Spiegel Evan gained so much media coverage a few years ago because of his decision to turn down an acquisition deal from Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg offered him $3 billion for his creation Snapchat. He turned it down and decided to continue alone. It currently has an estimate of $2 billion. It’s managed to captivate younger users, which is something many social media networks struggle to do. What’s so inspirational about Spiegel is he left the prestigious Stanford University to do this. What a risk! Alex Miller Alex Miller is one of the leading lights in the field of SEO. He is an example of a person who reacts to change in the right way. When Google made major changes to its algorithms under Panda and Penguin, many so-called gurus folded. They could no longer give clients what they wanted. Alex Miller changed the way he did things and it led him to becoming one of the magicians of the SEO industry. Today, he provides specialist SEO services to clients all over the world. Brian Wong Brian Wong is the founder of the mobile game advertising platform Kiip. Companies can give this rewarding app to their clients. These clients can then achieve certain milestones on these apps and earn rewards. For example, someone who plays a mobile game for ten hours may gain access to a discount card. It’s grown at a remarkable pace. It’s already partnered up with Kodak, Sony, Disney, and Guinness World Records, to name just a few. Sahil Lavingia Gumroad is a well-known platform for people who want to sell their items. It’s different from competitors like Craiglist because it also hosts the items of a number of well-known figures. People like David Banner have already used this platform to sell some of their items, and it’s because Sahil has created a reputable business people can trust. To reaffirm how successful he has been, he has raised over $8 million in funding for this company. Alex Mangini Alex Mangini is an entrepreneur who started as a designer of WordPress skins. He decided to turn what he was good at into a business. This was how Kolakube was born. This website now sells premium thesis skins for WordPress to the public. It enables clients to create truly unique websites. He also provides personal services to his clients. Since getting started, he has worked directly with well-known bloggers Jeremy Schoemaker, Lewis Homes, and Neil Patel. This online business is expanding at a rapid pace, and now many of these users are making over $100,000 a year as a direct result of Alex’s input. You Can Succeed What these five entrepreneurs should demonstrate is that anyone can succeed if they really want it. Develop a work ethic and find what you’re good at. If you can make the right connections and take the necessary risks, there’s no reason why you can’t be the next great entrepreneur. Take inspiration from these figures and learn from habits they have. It’s a long, hard road, but in the end if you really want it you’ll go out and get it!
