Hello Everyone,

With this so called Recession, thousands of people are going bankrupt everyday and at the lowest point ever! Today’s list is to show you guys that although times are tough and you think you have lots everything and your to old to have another chance, well your wrong!

I was once told that you arn’t a true entrepreneur if you haven’t gone bankrupt at least once! Well Walt Disney shows us how its done, he was fired by a newspaper editor because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” He went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. In fact, the proposed park was rejected by the city of Anaheim on the grounds that it would only attract riffraff.

It is also noteable that I have included the founder of Penthouse and the blogger Perez Hilton both web entrepreneurs! The difference between them and the others on the list is that their money is new money, made in the last 10 years! If you would like to follow in their foot steps then check out my FREE 7 day eCourse to making money online!
