Dossier MT5

All famous investors’ success stories were no flash in the pan. They were not born into wealth and had a bumpy ride before they became movers and shakers. The magnates put themselves up by their bootstraps. Despite their stories are somewhat similar, they are interesting and unique in their own way. Some of them started their path from a profession far from the one they ended up with. They made a bit on the side to get some extra money and then changed their lives dramatically. Some spent much time on education and started out as entry-level employees to move up the career ladder. Most got off to a flying start by opening a store, plant or retail chain which then became the pacesetters. Their business creed was quality and affordability. Their firms turned into multinationals with annual revenues exceeding hundreds of billions of dollars in ten, twenty, or thirty years. Such companies as IKEA, Inditex (Zara, Pull and Bear, Bershka), H&M, and ALDI are among the leading lights.
