The early entrepreneurial spirit of famous business people

They often say that you’ve either got ‘it’ or you haven’t, and it seems some of the world’s most famous business people were born with ‘it’, showing off their entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. As children or teens, many of these famous entrepreneurs had a flair for business, thinking up their own money-making schemes, starting up what would grow into million-dollar businesses or finding ingenious gaps in the market.

Some of the richest people in the world began making money for themselves as children, such as Warren Buffett who began doing odd jobs in order to save up enough money to start his own pinball machine business, and Richard Branson who saw a gap in the market and started his own magazine at 16 years old. Other famous business people who started young include Estée Lauder who took an interest in her chemist uncle’s company and went on to become one of the most famous names in beauty products, and Daymond John who started his first business while in the first grade! How about you? Did you have a flair for anything as a child and is that something you’re doing now?
