About The Book – Everyone knows Walt Disney, but do they know Walt Disney? A life fairly shrouded in mystery, this iconic persona has left a legacy in the domain of creativity that no one has been able to surpass in recent history.
In this one-of-a-kind self-help book, the world’s greatest storyteller has their story told! Educationist and inspirational guru, Virender Kapoor analyses the Disney story and derives entrepreneurial lessons, explaining how readers can successfully employ them in their own lives. It was Disney, first with Mickey Mouse and then his films—most notably, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi—who transformed animation from a novelty to an art form.
However, few know of Disney’s humble upbringing in rural America, learning to draw farm animals and flowers, his passion for his gift and his many entrepreneurial struggles in the rise to become a legend.
Creative Entrepreneurship is more than just a timeline of Disney events and a collection of interesting stories. It’s a guidebook that can be used to learn how passion for your chosen work and the potential, purpose and perseverance to build it can undeniably lead to success.
