IMAGINEERING Home & Abroad: Rolls-Royce is a true household name in engineering. A Rolls-Royce is one of the most successful luxury cars that money can buy. And with over 130 dealerships spread over 40 countries, the brand is known all around the globe. Kind of funny considering that it all started out with a poor kid that had a passion for innovation. When farm boy Henry Royce first started out tinkering with engines, nobody could have guessed he would one day create some of the most expensive cars in the world! And when he finally met his daredevil companion, history was truly made! Don’t miss this story (Business Stories):
Rolex is one of the most Luxury Brands in the World, valued today at around $8 Billion Dollars. Its history dates back a century ago and began with an orphan teenager whose inheritance was stolen away from him. After a few years working his way out, he decided to follow his passion and opened a watchmaking business. Little did he know that this business venture would lead him to pioneer modern wristwatches, changing its whole industry and creating a Billion-Dollar Empire. This is the story of Hans Wilsdorf (Big Company):
Today’s children are the adults of tomorrow. They are life’s greatest blessing, priceless treasures and wonderful gifts from God. But how we raise them determines their future.
A child can teach an adult three things: To be happy for no reason. To always be curious. To fight tirelessly for something. ~ Paulo Coelho
We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. ~ Stacia Tauscher
Children must be taught HOW to think, not WHAT to think. ~ Margaret Mead
Children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded. ~ Jess Lair
