Sometimes we forget that we humans just continue to do the same thing over and over again. The old adage “Nothing is new under the sun” always comes to mind. So every now and again I need just to remind myself of this fact that there are Amazing Entrepreneurs we have forgotten.
Even with the internet, fastest ever broadband, mobile phones and instant everything, there are many before us who just; firstly made this possible for us and secondly also had it all.
Lets look at five I admire.
