Many successful entrepreneurs, business owners and world leaders have something in common. When asked how they achieved their success, they point to a role model they knew personally or were familiar with during their formative and most inspired years. The role model lived a life that seemed appealing to them. That’s how many young entrepreneurs look at people like Bill Gates today, whether or not they’re fans of Microsoft. After all, Bill Gates dropped out of college and is now the world’s second richest man. That’s some serious inspiration for you — not because of the money but because of the opportunities brought about by wealth.
