Joanne Carlo Schieble brought Steve Jobs in this world on February 24, 1955 with his life partner Abdulfattah. But, Jobs had not been able to grow up with his biological parents and known to be as the adopted child of Paul and Clara Jobs. Steve Job’s childhood was a chaotic one, but his own inherent intelligence and natural resourcefulness helped him to deal with school work and academic life in general.
Steve Jobs has a completely unique skill of identifying a particular need and create a technique or solution that will sustain that need. Thereafter, he organized a group of people that can turn his concepts into reality. So Job’s skill to discover excellent products and merchandize was – in many different ways – the building block of his prosperity.
Markus Persson is a Swedish game developer, who has successfully made the phenomenal gaming termed as Minecraft. On June 1, 1979 in Stockholm Sweden, this renowned developer was born.

Matthew Corrin – Not much is known about Matthew Corrin’s private life, but from what I have got, he is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario. He then took up an apprenticeship at The Late Show with David Letterman. Moreover, he gets a short-term work in public relations. This information isn’t sufficient to completely know Corrin’s real life.
What made Corrin thriving is his talent to take risks, with a little help from his luck. Corrin was clueless at the time Freshii was established so this means he had the less likelihood of making it grow. Even so, his instincts and his ability to make a thriving dining table brands helped him to expand his business and further increases his profits. It just proves that combination of courage, creativity and raw luck can help you become successful.
On March 30, 1926 in Pjatteryd, Sweden is where the Swedish entrepreneur Ingvar Kamprad was born. His childhood years taught him how to be a self entrepreneur just like selling matches, pens, pictures frames and the like in his local town. As time passes, he was able to teach himself different business methods from pure hands on approach.
Now, Kamprad is deemed among the top 10 most prosperous people on earth. His childhood merchandizing experience is his first step in becoming great. Kamprad and Persson has a little similarity when it comes to the type of product to sell and a big difference to Corrin where Kamprad contains plenty of experience than him. So by the time he founded IKEA, he was already an experienced business owner.
