Adults as well as students will be inspired and engaged by these tales.
Inspirational Business Icons
Steve Forbes On Achievement tells the stories of business icons whose achievements have changed the world and improved the lives of millions of people. However, many of these people are overlooked and underappreciated today. They are especially excited to share these significant stories with students through these excellent videos hosted by Steve Forbes, who is well-known throughout the nation for his unique understanding of economics and business.
The series profiles entrepreneurs like Annie Malone, the magnate of hair products and possibly the first Black millionaire; Fred Harvey, whose Harvey House hotels and restaurants established the modern hospitality industry; Malcom McLean, the inventor of the shipping container that changed global commerce; George Eastman, whose innovations in photography reduced the cost of cameras and made them more affordable for millions of people; and the creator of the Barbie doll, Ruth Handler. Elizabeth Ames, a longtime collaborator of Forbes who also created and produced the series, wrote the three-minute episodes.
