Tuesday, December, 21, 2010
An entrepreneur is someone who is a risk taker in the market, a person who never gives up on their lifelong work, and someone who owns their own business. Bill Gates is extremely intelligent in many specific areas, and one of those is computers. Gates is an entrepreneur who started his own business named Microsoft. Microsoft is a software for computers, including its own, and has several partnerships with companies like Xbox. He is said to make two-hundred-fifty dollars every second, which is about twenty-million dollars a day. He is the third richest man in the world, but how could a college dropout achieve this much success? Bill Gates is successful because he was introduced to computers at a young age and took a great deal interest into his work. Today, he is determined to never give up on making his business, and thats why he is here, because he will continue to expand, and improve Microsoft.
Bill Henry Gates III was born in Seattle, Washington on October 28, 1955 to a very wealthy, and intelligent family. He has two sisters: one older sister named Kristianne, and younger sister named Libby. Gates had attended a public elementary school, until his parents, Sr. Mary Gates and William Gates II recognized his stupendous intelligence and enrolled him, and his sisters, in a highly academic private school named Lakeside Private School in Seattle. Lakeside Private School is where Gates was first introduced to computers. At only 13 years old, Gates started to program computers, and become very interested in them. At age 14, he took on a project involving computers that earned him twenty-thousand dollars. After he graduated in 1973 from Lakeside Private School, he was enrolled in Harvard, a college in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was planning on receiving a degree in law, but then after deciding in 1975 that he wanted to start his own business with Paul allen, co-founder of Microsoft, he dropped out of Harvard to pursue his dream: computers. Microsoft was established in 1976 as a trademark, and four years later, gave Gates the 'National Medal of Technology for Technological Achievement' from George Bush in 1992. Gates' early life was a huge component to where he is now; therefore, making him one of the richest people in the world.
