25 Visionaries Who Created Empires From Virtually Nothing

25 Visionaries Who Created Empires From Virtually Nothing | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Some of the greatest fortunes and empires in history were created by people who started with nothing. Today, the author celebrates 25 of these iconic figures – businessmen, technology entrepreneurs, even celebrities and athletes – by recalling the tales of their rise to glory.

 

Don’t feel bad if your favorites aren’t on the list, this is just a glimpse of the many visionaries we’ve seen throughout history and there are countless others who also deserve attention. While each of them took a slightly different path to financial greatness, virtually all of them started from very humble beginnings.

If you were to ask your students when infographics were first created what do you think their answer would be? What would your answer be? This infographic looks at "a timeline of timelines and infographics" and the result may surprise your students. It would be a good to use as an introduction to infographics along with the one that was put out using Legos to answer the question "What is an infographic?" located at

If you are looking for websites that provides video resources in the area of social studies check out this post. Richard Byrne provides a list of ten websites, stating "As a Social Studies teacher, I have used all but one of these sources in my classroom at least once and most of them I've used multiple times."

The list includes:

* PBS Video - high quality documentaries.

* History for Music Lovers "is a great place to find music videos about dozens of topics in World History."

Check out the post for an additional seven sites!
