The heroic story of going from somebody’s garage to being worth billions has got to be one of the most compelling tales within entrepreneur and startup folklore.
It shows that one potent idea can be so powerful that it eclipses all the other factors.
Entrepreneurs that are a part of this “garage-to-riches” story do not start with $20 million in the bank. They do not typically have proven and accomplished technical teams. They must resort to building their new enterprise with elbow grease and ingenuity. They must make up for a lack of capital with hard work and discipline – but most of all, conviction.

A mission statement can be a powerful tool to help ensure your company remains consistently excellent and focused. It is your "why" - it's why you exist. Your strategy. Your core. Your vision. Your identity. Your culture. And it can steer you toward success.
Are you working out of your garage, in your bedroom, a motel room, or a friends space that they aren’t using on the weekends? Listen, it happens. We all have to start somewhere – the big thing is that you started. So many people have had ideas for companies and just sat on them because taking that initial leap is too risky – but you did. And you’re in good company.
