Mr. Ma applied for 30 different jobs and got rejected by all. “I went for a job with the police; they said, ‘you’re no good,'” Mr. Ma told interviewer Charlie Rose. “I even went to KFC when it came to my city. Twenty-four people went for the job. Twenty-three were accepted. I was the only guy…” In addition to this, he applied ten times to Harvard Business School (HBS) and got rejected. ~Wikipedia
Meet Jack Ma!
Jack is a former English teacher
Jack was born in 1967 in China
Jack failed his entry exams 4 times for college.
Jack never stopped.
1994 Mr. Ma finds the internet and in 1995 launches his first websites.
One of my favorite adaptations to a saying
“When you build it they will come” is really “Hurry and build it, they have been waiting!”
Mr. Ma goes on to raise $20 thousand dollars of investment funds & names his company China Pages and in just 3 years amassed $800,000!
1999 rolls around and Mr. Ma and a group of friends create Alibaba…
2018 and Mr Ma is looking to retire with sales surpassing $25 million mark!
The next time you feel yourself in doubt remember Mr Ma
Applied 10 times to HARVARD and was rejected.
Applied to over 30 jobs and they rejected him too.
He had no results or results that were not expected.
It often took 3 hours or more of waiting to even connect to the internet, at first…
You not where you wanna be? Are you struggling? Get a new group of people behind you! Be like JACK!
Jack had people that believed in him, supported him, and dug in with him!
