Jack Ma is a Chinese citizen who failed twice to join college. In the third time he barely passed after doing extraordinary preparation effort. First of all, he tried to get a job at a restaurant but most of them didn’t want him in. Since he failed to get a job at KFC and so he found no other option but to work as an English teacher who earns 10 British pounds a month.
Before teaching English, Jack Ma had to learn it and because he was passionate about it, he used to ride his bicycle for 45 minutes each day to reach a nearby hotel where he used to start conversations with tourists and give them free tours in the city(to improve his language).
And because Jack was unsatisfied with his job so he decided to move to the U.S to get a better life. He studied Computers, Internet and he became passionate about them. He founded the website Alibaba.com which allows merchants and companies to trade products online.
Lucky for him, Alibaba became a huge success. Alibaba was listed in the stock market and its shares were worth 140 billion British pounds. This step alone increased Jack’s wealth by 11 billion and he became the richest man in china at that point.
Today Jack’s net worth is 29.8 billion dollars. He was named one of the 25 Most Powerful Business people in Asia and one of the “World’s Best CEOs“.
Jack Ma- “I failed 3 times in college. I applied 30 times to get a job but I have always been rejected. When KFC came to China for the first time, we were 24 to apply and I was the only one to be dismissed. I wanted to go into the police and 5 postulants, I was the only one not to be accepted. I applied 10 times to return to Harvard University USA and I was rejected.”
Jack Ma, Alibaba Creator and 22nd World fortune(according to Forbes in 2015 with $ 29.8 Billion) once said, “Never give up because you failed once, know that failure is sometimes out-of-the-way to reach your intended route” !!!
