A Humble Beginning
Amazon started with a simple website selling books. It was a humble beginning and Jeff Bezos the CEO had high hopes for his new online retail store. The innovative and visionary entrepreneur went on to add more and more categories into the site, until its the full store you see today.
In the book “The Everything Store” you can learn about amazons start. It was a struggle. Most companies were born out of hardship, difficulty and repeated failure. When Jeff Bezos had the opportunity to start he only had $70,000 in his saving and just two choices. He could purchase a house, or start his company. Jeff came from a corporate background and was advised to not waste his money on starting an online book company. He was warned about the giant players already existing in that space.
Growing To 100 Billion
Lucky for Jeff, he ignored that advice, and went on to build one of the biggest
companies that exists today. Amazon growth is very strange. Investors started by saying it was a really bad bet because of how much debt Jeff Bezos was in. But over time, Jeff has proven that he can go into huge amounts of debt, and lead to massive growth and profits.
Amazon did over 100 Billion last year and is on path to do more than 120 Billion this year. Their stock growth is beautiful to look at. Jeff keeps innovating with new products and strategies to advance the buyers experience.
