30 Richest Dyslexic Entrepreneurs

Please follow and like us:

I’m sure some of you have realised I’m dyslexic. When I was younger I struggled to read and write and now I earn more then a full time income being a writer which is kinder strange considering the issues I had with it. Being an Internet entrepreneur/Blogger has helped me dramatically improve my reading and writing. For today’s post, I thought it would be interesting to see which other entrepreneurs are dyslexic and was very happy to see some huge names!

I am also left handed and a college dropout, so to make this list even more intersting I decided to find out who else is just like me. It was great to see I share these characteristics with Henry Ford and Walt Disney! Both of them were dyslexic, left handed and college dropouts, the only down side is they both went bankrupt at some point…
