9 Famous Setbacks and Turnarounds of Legendary Entrepreneurs

I never thought while growing up that I would strive to become an entrepreneur and be in charge of my own destiny. Did you?

I grew up in a very conservative family who taught me day in and day out the lessons of going to school to get good grades, to then find a nice job and to finally follow their path of working for the same company for 30 years and ­­­retire with a “nice” pension plan.  Times are different now. Isn’t true?

Living in the 21st century with so many changes happening at the same time is hard to keep that mentality of my parents.

So, where am I right now? I’m an entrepreneur in training. Which means what? I’m figuring things out on how to follow my passions and capitalize in this market of opportunities. And let me tell you… It’s kind of difficult when you don’t know what you don’t know. Challenges, obstacles and tribulations are going to come your way to stop you from following your dreams and desires. And, what to do when this happens? Here is my strategy… Find real life stories of people who managed to overcome big setbacks and learn something valuable from them that will help you keep moving forward in the direction of your aspirations. I know you will find a great piece of advice!!! They have been there.
