Success stories that will inspire you to work hard


Reading success stories is as easy as finding a recruitment agency for construction. However, putting action into words is as difficult as breaking up concrete by hand.

So, we are setting the base for you by sharing amazing success stories, and we hope you will take this to the next level.

1. Arianna Huffington

Do you know that Arianna Huffington had to struggle a lot before creating the recognizable Huffington Post empire? Well, her second book was rejected 36 times before it was accepted for publication. One can link her struggles to J.K.Rowling who received loads of rejections for the Harry Potter series,

But that was not all, Huffington Post even had its share of failures when it launched. Negative reviews about quality and potential made it have a low start. However, we know the effectiveness of Huffington Post and the never dying spirit of Arianna Huffington.

2. Brian Scudamore

Starting a business of junk removal is not as easy as finding a recruitment agency for construction. It turns out to be even tougher with just $700 and a beat-up truck. But Brian had made up his mind and today; his company has achieved considerable success in North America. He describes his company as the FedEx of junk removal, and one can hardly be wrong with the same because he has almost 100 franchised locations across North America.

3. A.J. Scribante

If you are connected to the world of marketing, MAJERS is a brand you might know. A.J. Scribante is the pioneer behind the brand and started off by merely selling bleach to supermarkets around the Midwest. But it was his dream to go big and establish himself in this field and make it large in the world of marketing. MAJERS, today, is a multi-million dollar marketing information company.

4. Jill Blashack Strahan

Three months behind her house payment, two employees she couldn’t pay, a backyard shed, a pool table and hardly any savings; one would have given up on their life being pushed to the limits. However, Blashack Strahan stayed positive and started her gourmet food company. She went from strength to strength, and it took her 12 years to move from nothing to build a $120 million dollar business. Her small idea transformed into a successful Tastefully Simple that is loved by people.

5. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield

If you are familiar with Ben & Jerry’s, you’ll instantly think of your favorite flavor, but the taste was created after a lot of hard work and research. The duo did their research well and learned that the only college town that had no ice cream shop was Burlington, Vermont. So, they started working on unique flavors, and twenty years later, the company made an impression that should last forever. Today, their company’s annual revenue is well over $200 million.
