Entrepreneurs have a way of opening up to new ideas and innovation. They have it in them as in inbuilt trait. Most entrepreneurs have a unique way of finding the creative element in their lives.
If you ask me what is the best way to define an entrepreneur, I would say someone who has self-belief, who is ready to do some hard work and is disciplined in dedication. Someone who has immense focus and sheer determination with a tinge of stubbornness.
They are the people who can turn the odds in his/her favor, the blooming flowers of the future.
We often read their stories to gain inspiration. Are you eager to read about them too? Here are some entrepreneurs who inspired millions.
I saw this guy for the first time on TechTV. He was the guy who used to host the show called The Screen Savers.

For those of you who don’t know who Blake Mycoskie is, he is the man behind the TOMS shoes. While traveling to Argentina, Blake came across a number of children who were growing without shoes. It really inspired him to do something for the underprivileged. And he went forward with his million dollar idea with a single motto.
For every shoe which Blake Mycoskie’s firm sold in the commercial market, it would dispatch a pair of shoes to a child in need anywhere around the world. The One for One concept really turned into a magnanimous success story and traveled far and wide. Later on, the success of these shoes motivated Mycoskie to invest in other products like eyewear, clean water, and safe birth products.

Harry & Charlie Thuillier
They say the greatest ideas come to mind when you are stranded in remote locations for survival. Brother Harry & Charlie Thuillier are an example. In Brazil, when the duo set off to break the world record of traveling on kite-powered buggies, there came a time when they completely ran out of food.
The brothers were forced to search for other edible alternatives and came across different wild fruits and coconuts. It gave them the idea of creating one of the world’s healthiest ice cream. After coming back to civilization, they launched their amazing brand Oppo ice-cream and created a unique amalgamation of fresh milk, stevia leaves, wild harvested coconut oil and launched the product. Who knew their idea would turn into a huge success and get sold on more than 4000 different stores across UK and Europe!
