Sample Answer 1
Well, the world is filled with an array of successful businesspeople. Often, I like spending my time reading their biographies and watching their biopics. So, if I have to talk about one successful businessman, it would be Elon Musk.
He is a business magnate and an entrepreneur. His struggling journey to become the founder, chief engineer, and CEO at SpaceX is incredibly inspiring. Elon Musk is also the investor, product architect, and CEO of Tesla, Inc. Apart from this; he is also associated with The Boring Company, Neuralink, and OpenAI. According to the Forbes and Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Elon Musk is currently the wealthiest person in the world. Musk commenced working on unrealistic ideas, proving that he is a rare progeny. This businessman has encountered uncountable failures throughout his life but never gave up. His zeal to do something extraordinary brought him to such a place where he is an outstanding innovator and the wealthiest man on the earth today.
Last year, I came across an article on the internet that talked about the technologies that changed the world. Extremely curious to find out about the inventors and revolutionists of the 21st century, I began my search. And that is when I came across Elon Musk. Although I had heard his name before, it was the first time I read his story that mesmerized me to the core.

With the advancement of technology and the advent of social media, many people are becoming entrepreneurs, which is a good sign for the country’s economic growth. But, in India, few names resonate with successful businesses. One such name is the Ambanis, especially Mr. Mukesh Ambani.
Born to Dhirubhai Ambani, the founder of Reliance Industries, and Kokilaben Ambani, Mukesh Ambani is the richest man in India with a net worth of around $87.7 billion in 2022, even though he is a college dropout. He has a younger brother named Anil Ambani and is married to Nita Ambani with three children. He is the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, with a revenue of $74 billion. The company has interests in petrochemicals, oil and gas, telecom, and retail. He is counted among the tenth billionaires of the world and is an inspiration to the youth.
In India, Mukesh Ambani is a household name as he is one of the top competitors in the business market. His business is spread over various fields. Moreover, in 2016, Reliance entered the hyper-competitive Indian telecom market with a renewed vigor with the launch of the 4G phone service Jio. During the Covid-19 lockdown, he raised more than $20 billion by selling one-third of Jio to a string of investors like Facebook and Google. Therefore, as motivation for most young magnates, Mukesh Ambani, is India’s notable name.
