People in the business world

A few people that have been successful in this field are Donald Trump and Steve Jobs. They have both influenced the field of business and  have showed how to market ones self. They can get a bad reputation for things they do, but you can't ever say they were bad businessmen. They are a good example of very successful businessmen. They have also had their ups and downs. Steve Jobs stole ideas and told the public they were his own ideas. Even though Donald Trump is and was rich, he has been bankrupt before.  

A person I look up to is my mom. She is a great businesswomen. she has always known how to pay bills and save money. She has also found ways to keep my brother and I happy, even though we are not rich. She worked for John Deere and knows about the business world and what it takes to be successful in the world of business. By herself she has done wonderfully in the world of business as a great mom.

Calvin Coolidge once said, "The business of America is business." He did wonderful things in this country when business was not thriving. He made the choice to make big business be the top priority in America. He is the reason why business is very profitable.
