Your Trusted Friends
Wow. I never knew that Walt Disney and Ray Kroc knew each other. I didn't even know that it was Ray Kroc that invented McDonald's. Reading this article gave me a lot of information that I never knew before. This is a good thing because it gives you insight into something that's never been known. I don't think a lot of people know about all these facts. It's interesting to see the struggles both entrepreneurs faced while building up their empires. It's also crazy to learn of their dark sides and the sacrifices they had to make. But it was good to see that at some point both partners collided, even if it didn't work out as intended. Both were very successful in the end with what they started from scratch. It gives you incentive and motivation to be that successful yourself. It's crazy how advertising for kids can grow from nothing to an empire within a couple of decades. Consumers are wanting more and more from these big name companies. Scholsser uses a great number of resources for this article. One thing I liked most, he experienced most of it himself. Instead of reading about McDonaldLand, he went there. This gives him great credibility. His sources are reliable.
