      It's so amazing what he did with the company, isn't it? Even with the economy being in rough shape, people still make room in their budget for their products!

      Glad you enjoyed it :) I love them all but if I had to choose Steve Jobs would be at the top of my list.

      This hub is really interesting. I especially love Thomas Edison because of how tenacious he was. These are some excellent examples of helpful personality traits for entrepreneurs and the people who embody them.
