At first, it was the emperors. Then it was the oil barons. After that, came the tech billionaires. Now an ecommerce entrepreneur is the world’s richest man. He wasn’t expected to be in the top 100, let alone top 10 billionaires. The name is Jeff Bezos. In this post we will discuss on how he became the king of ecommerce.
In 1994, Bezos wasn’t clear about which way to go in his career. He did amass a small fortune by that time. Evidently, it came on the back of multiple lines of trades. He abandoned his fortunes to sell books. That decision alone led to the creation of Amazon and effected a major change in ecommerce. At first they dealt in publishing, film, TV and journals.
Never settle is the mantra of Jeff Bezos. That’s exactly how he took an idea to garage and built it as one of the largest marketplace in the world. Jeff Bezos was born on 1964 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a child, he turned his parent’s garage into his laboratory. He always had a big vision, which reflected in his schooling. In 1982, Valedictorian speech, he spoke about colonializing other planets. True to that dream, he builds spacecraft as a hobby.
Early to the scene
On 1986 he graduated from Princeton with a science degree.
