Some Men Start As Failures

untitledI’ve done a little research and found out some interesting facts about a certain persons business failures. A guy we all know by now had to file for bankruptcy after a failed project. He left town with $40 in cash, and an imitation-leather suitcase containing only a shirt, two undershorts and two pairs of socks. He suffered what he called, “a heck of a breakdown.” He was anxious about the ability for his projects to really deliver serious profit. The breakdown included sleepless hours in bed at night. He even plunge into crying spells at a moment’s notice. He was forced to dissolve his company and at one point could not pay his rent and was surviving by eating dog food.

 

 

One more point of interest. When Walt tried to get MGM studios to distribute Mickey Mouse in 1927 he was told that the idea would never work– a giant mouse on the screen would terrify women. The man I described above is, of course Walt Disney.
