There are hundreds of incredible companies in this world. Today, each company is working to innovate on new or existing products and ideas. Do you have the vision and drive to create something truly great? Creativity and vision will get you started, but how do you develop it into a successful business?
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter Drucke
The creative process is one of the most valuable aspects of the mind when we are able to apply effort to build it into something great.
On July 5, 1994, in Seattle, Washington, a man had an idea. He wanted to create an online bookstore with not hundreds, but thousands of titles. In the beginning, the entire company was run inside a small warehouse where the books were stored. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, used to personally drive the packaged books to the post office each day to ship them to customers. Now, that same company completes over $400 billion in annual sales; selling virtually anything you can think of.
Here is a picture of Jeff Bezos in his office in 1999:
It's incredible to look at what Amazon has become from such humble beginnings. Today, Amazon has thousands of employees and operates in over a hundred nations; shipping products in as little as an hour with Amazon Prime.
All incredible things start from small beginnings. Your business may be destined for a fate equal to Amazon; or you may want to simply grow it so you can share your passion with others. Whatever the case, your vision is a great asset. By developing your vision into systems and business structures, your company will grow and develop. It will take creativity to overcome challenges and problems; but through your efforts, and the effort of employees and business services, you can thrive!
Jeff Bezos is now the richest man in the world; recently overtaking Bill Gates. By continuing to grow and develop his idea of an online store into what it is today, Bezos has helped to serve billions of individuals. How are you working to build your dream into reality?
