By definition, an Entrepreneur is someone who turns challenging obstacles into glory and success. You must accept the hand your dealt and turn whatever little you have into something game-changing.
This notion is something that has become lost amid startups' multi-million dollar rounds of seed funding and aid from the most established mentors of today. The rule seems to have become that - to be an entrepreneur - you must have some serious dough and have an untouchable network of successful connects.
Here's an inspiring story that'll bring the old badass notion of entrepreneurship back in sight... Well, not literally. Herb Greenberg lost his sight at age 10. In 1961, after a nine years in the academic world, he founded Caliper, a consulting firm that specializes in assessing job applicants.
Caliper now has 250 employees in 13 offices worldwide. Not bad for a blind man from Brooklyn, huh? Here is what Herb has to say on overcoming adversity as he tells Elite Daily on how he made his first couple million and established his name among the business Elite:
On Proving Everybody Wrong:
On Never Letting Anything Stop You:
On Turning Lemons Into Lemonade:
In 2012, Caliper is renowned as the authority on human capital, management consulting, and fixing broken firms in need of top-performers. Moreover, Herb Greenberg has become a legend, essentially.
From Harvard Business Review case studies to motivational books, countless business voices have tried to learn from Herb's success. Herb went from being a blind boy in Brooklyn to the Father of the modern recruiting and hiring system for Fortune 500 companies.
