But, it wasn’t always that easy. He started Pandora Radio in 2000, and found that becoming an entrepreneur was difficult. He tried to find investors on a daily basis, but failed 247 straight times. Then he maxed out twelve of his credit cards. Finally on the 248th time, Tim finally raised $7 million. His persistance was finally paying off.
When asked why he was so driven to succeed, Tim said “I had a dream.”
Now Pandora Media is listed on the stock market with Tim’s value alone at $2 billion. Annual company revenues have now passed the $200,000,000 mark. His dream came true.
If having a dream worked for Tim, it can work for all of us. Sometimes, however, we have to be patient and persistent.
