When it comes to technology and the future of the internet, two names stand out above the rest as giants of their fields – Amazon and Jeff Bezos. Both entrepreneurs grew up in small towns and now have a fortune at stake. While Bezos grew up in Seattle, Amazon grew up in Seattle and has since become one of the most famous companies in the world.
If you want to know how they met and how they came up with the original idea, it all begins with a book by both of them. In this book, Bezos gives a detailed account of his childhood and early years in the business. And, in the book, Amazon gets a detailed account of its origins and growth over the years.
Both books are a popular book to look at. But, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos gave birth to another book that has made a lot of people’s day – “How I started Amazon”. In this book, Bezos details how he came up with the idea for Amazon. He even provides quotes from then Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs and Google Inc. CEO Larry Page, two world leaders in Internet technology.
In addition to this book, Bezos also started another popular book which is “The Single most important thing you must do to start a successful business”. In this book, Bezos provided a guide on how to set up your business. He explains in detail on what your goals should be and how to get there. And he gives the reasons why these goals should be done.
The original idea was to create a website that sells books. However, as Bezos grew older, the idea changed into the business that is now known as Amazon.
You may wonder how the two became friends and how they came up with the idea of Amazon. Well, Amazon and Jeff Bezos were classmates in high school. He created an online computer training site for him. Bezos then used his computer programming skills to create a network of machines, which would eventually become Amazon.
According to Jeff Bezos, he first met Jeff Bezos while serving as the editor-in-chief of his computer magazine called Wired Magazine. Bezos was impressed with Wired’s early work and he wanted to publish it. He was also impressed with Bezos’ idea about creating a network of machines which would eventually become Amazon.
Amazon and Jeff Bezos have continued to show strong relations for the past few years. They worked together for many years to develop e-books and other business e-book products that sell very well in the market.
