It is very likely that in any gathering of friends, any of the participants expressed openly that they have any business idea and think that this good idea will make them millionaires. It is clear that the “the fact that there is a long way” and turn those ideas into a concrete business is something that requires more than an idea. However, do not be discouraged, many entrepreneurs beginning with simple ideas and humble, which went on to become highly profitable business.
Names like Bill Gates, Larry Ellison and Mark Zuckerberg are what comes to mind when we think of people who have had ideas that are now worth millions of dollars, but need not go that far or live in Silicon Valley to turn your idea into million.
The following are examples that we extracted from Yahoo Finance and hopefully encourage him to carry his idea into practice.
I hope that they will find useful.
1. Firehouse Subs: fire to “sanducheros.” Sorensen Brothers, Chris and Robin used to be firefighters when they came to open a sandwich shop based on family recipes.
In 1994, the brothers got a loan from a credit card and opened their first store, which is decorated with motifs related to the work of both.
They even gave names to sandwiches inspired by the slang terms for firefighters. While attending a local brother the other continued his work as a firefighter.
Today the two are devoted to business, because this is a business with more than 514 local and franchises throughout the United States and the business continues to grow.
Last year the business grossed $ 285 million in sales.
2. Two men and a truck. Mary Ellen Sheets never imagined that transport trash would become a multimillion-dollar company.
In 1980 the children of Mary, Brig Sorber and Jon began to do small jobs for the people around them, using their pickup trucks to transport garbage and weeds in the courtyards of these and move and discard old furniture.
Once the kids went to college, the phone kept ringing so Mary Ellen hired two men and bought another pickup truck, for $ 300.
What at first was a hobby that allowed him to earn a few dollars into a real business when he decided to devote full time.
Similarly made a decision that changed her life was devoted to franchise the business. Today the company has real trucks, not pick ups, and last year had sales of $ 220 million.
