It's nice to see that success is possible more than once, but also that it's possible after a failure.

@bryceoflife Perseverence pays!
Neat visualization of the career of well known founders, from Steven Jobs to Arianna Huffington. TIL, @mcuban's first business ventures started at the age of 12, selling garbage bags. cc @OmarAl

This is incredibly inspiring. This shows how you can do anything that you put your mind to no matter what life throws at your doorstep. Dedication, heart and sweat will get you through it.
this is way cool. i'd love to see it expanded to other people/founders as well. would be nice if there was a place to suggest founders i'd like to see on here in the future.
@adammarx13 Great to hear you like the piece. We don't have any plans to expand it right now, but that may change in the future. That said, I'd love to hear your suggestions in any case as we've a few other pieces in the pipeline. Either drop a comment here or​ email me -
@hannah_bo_banna @adammarx13 Absolutely! It's really cool and as timelines fascinate me (I'm a history nerd), I love how this is interactive and fairly simple. Lemme think about some things which I think would be cool to see and I'll drop you a line when I have a couple of suggestions :D
This is totally cool!
