Being an entrepreneur is an art, says Julien Foussard. Here’s what he’s learned while building his business.
How do you turn a good idea into success? This is something I’ve been practicing from the age of 12, and believe me I’ve had my fair share of failures, but which successful entrepreneur hasn’t? Take Colonel Sanders for instance; having lost four jobs by the age of 17, being washed out of the army and finally retiring from a cooking job at a small café when he was 65, he was on the verge of committing suicide as he hadn’t got what he wanted out of life. He powered on and instead of giving up, Sanders borrowed $87, fried some chicken using his own recipe and began selling it door-to-door, which kick-started his rise to billionaire status and owning the well-known fast food chain, KFC.
