Not creative enough?

Walt Disney has been fired first jobs at a newspaper company as an editor because of his lack of creativity, this put him in even more of a financial situation.But since he was fired it let him follow through with what he wanted to do... Create cartoons.

Alice Comedies

Money was a problem

You wouldn't expect it but  Walt Disney's first company Newman Laugh-O-Grams studios had little money and that caused them many financial problems in the long run but it became very difficult to get out of their dept so they were forced to file bankruptcy.
