To Top

Who Would’ve Thought These People Would Be Millionaires

A lot of people who are now successful in life didn’t start at the top, they really worked hard to get into where they are now. Some of them even took years. But all of them have one thing in common, and that is none of them gave up. Here are some of the most successful people in the world who never gave up on their dreams.

Colonel Sanders of KFC

IMG_5193Before he brought us one of the most famous fast chains, Colonel Harland Sanders was actually a salesman. During the 1920’s, he became the top salesman in Kentucky, but unfortunately, he got fired because of his temper. But not only that, he also got fired from his railroad jobs, but at the age of 65, he closed his first restaurant and got broke.

You may think that it’s over for him since he’s old, but he never stopped. He even used it as a motivation to start again, because after losing his first restaurant, the Colonel traveled across the U.S. just to sell his very own version of the fried chicken. And at the age of 74, he had more than 600 outlets for his fried chicken. And now, his face is in every branch of KFC, all over the world.



This is the man behind the Apple products that we are using today, and almost everyone in this world has one. But how did he actually manage to make it this far?

Before he became The Steve Jobs he first attended Reed College in 1972 but unfortunately, he dropped out since Reed was way too pricey and he didn’t really feel like it’s worth wasting his parents’ money on certain classes he never really wanted to take and he felt like he just also wasting his time.

“Basically, Steve Wozniak and I, invented the Apple because we wanted a personal computer. Not only we couldn’t afford the computers that were on the market, those computers were impractical for us to use. We needed a Volkswagen. The Volkswagen, isn’t as fast or as comfortable as other ways of traveling, but the VW owners can go where they want, when they want and with whom they want. The VW owners have personal control of their car.”

She also worked as a waitress at T.G.I Friday’s, and as a house painter, a hostess, a bartender and she also worked at J.C. Penney.
