Colonel Sanders was 65 years old when he received his first social security cheque of $99. He was broke, and owned a small house and a beat up car. He take the courage and decided that he has got to change. The only idea he had was a chicken recipe, which his friends liked. He thought of using this idea only.
He left his home in Kentucky and traveled to many states in US to sell his idea. He told the restaurant owners that he had a chicken recipe that people liked and he offered them for a very little cost.
The only thing he wanted in return was that the restaurant owners pay him a small percentage on the pieces of chicken sold.
He got rejections after rejections, but did not give up. Actually, he got over 1000 rejections.
He got 1009 no’s before he got his first ‘Yes‘. With that one success Colonel Sanders changed the eating habits of the whole world with Kentucky Fried Chicken, popularly known as KFC.
