Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com was recently in the news. Why? Because for a few hours, he overtook Bill Gates to become the planet’s richest person. 

Amazon.com is a very successful company. Jeff Bezos has built this company from scratch and continues to grow it and make it better. He owns a lot of shares in his company. One share of Amazon.com costs more than a $1000. The company and Bezos make millions of dollars every day. His current net worth is estimated at $ USD 83.7  billion dollars. (More than the GDP – revenue earned by of 180 countries)

Bezos’s success can be attributed to the work ethic he inherited watching his father and maternal grandfather. Jeff grew up observing his father Miguel Bezos’ tireless work ethic and frequent expression of love for America and its countless opportunities and freedoms. Jeff spent most summers growing up on his grandfather’s Texas ranch where he learnt values of physical labour, independence and resourcefulness. Together they built heavy contraptions, repaired windmills, and castrated bulls.

A combination of these values sparked Jeff’s interest in inventing and building things. Growing up he made all kinds of electronics, robots, hovercrafts and even booby traps to keep his siblings out of his room.
