To most people, coming up with an invention or innovative idea is something hard to do. If it isn't hard, chances are that you have had experience or someone around you has already done something similar. How do we really make an impact with value?
Steve Jobs completely changed the tech world
Bill Gates continues to innovate our software into unbelievable spaces
Richard Branson made the biggest influence on the air industry since the start of air travel
These entrepreneurial moguls all have one thing in common: they disrupted their respective markets and they changed the dynamics of what is there today.
Just think about how influential they have been: if Steve Jobs didn't produce the Macintosh Computer, chances are that we would still be using typewriters in our daily lives. If Branson hadn't disrupted air transportation we may not be able to travel so often. And, if Bill Gates had not influenced the tech world with such valuable software we may still be looking at arcade halls. The truth is that these people are all special types of entrepreneurs; disruptors who have changed our lives forever.
They changed ideas into value.
These billionaires all started would a low-cost, intuitive way to disrupt a reasonably stable market environment. They converted their ideas into value for society, not just themselves.
I am sure that you will use one of these entrepreneurs' products soon enough, so take note of just how powerful they all have been, still are, and will continue to be within the course of humanity.
