Talk About Entrepreneurism Roof Repair Atlanta!
Wow! Don’t you love how Nike came to start? If you don’t know how lemme give you a lil background on it. The company was founded on January 25, 1964, by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight. It’s original name was Blue Ribbon Sports, then officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971. The company gets its name from Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, need we say more!
These two guys were true entrepreneurs at heart. This is what my entire blog is about Nike, but underneath Nike is the true nature of being an entrepreneur, which is exactly what I am and love. Just like my Dad was back in the day when he started our family roof repair business from scratch! Which I need to give a lil love right here to my Dad and if you do live in the Peachtree Corners area of beautiful Georgia, stop by and let them know their ‘other’ son sent you…LOL.
Okay, so let’s get back to Nike and how these two guys, being the entrepreneurs they are, came to start this great company called Nike. This athletic machine began as a small distributing outfit which was in the trunk of Phil Knight’s car.
Yep, in the trunk of his car!
Nike emanated from these two sources, which are from Bill Bowerman’s thoughts for a much-lighter, more durable racing shoe which he wanted for his Oregon runners. Knight was searching for a way to make money by his love of athletics (true entrepreneur at heart). the way he met Bowerman was Bowerman coached track at the University of Oregon where Phil Knight ran in 1959. Knight was influenced by Bowerman’s desire for better quality running shoes. Between them, the seed of the most influential sporting company grew.
The company flourished from that point on and needless to say Nike is still at the top! So, by following his love and integrating it into a business is a true entrepreneur.
This is why I started my company at Atlanta Entrepreneur Company. I’m going to let every other business owner out there that I can talk to in order to get some Entrepreneur Events going to help those that need our expertise.
