Success Story of Jack Ma ;Jack Ma Early Life
Jack Ma was born on 10 September 1979 in a very small village in China. He saw every face of childhood poverty that is difficult for us to even imagine.
He was very interested in learning and understanding the English language from childhood. At that time, the main language of the communist country China was Chinese and in the 70s, Chinese language was given importance. No special attention was given to learning and studying the English language, nor was it considered necessary.
Despite this, he started learning English at the age of about 13 years, instead of an English teacher he started helping tourists from abroad and started playing the role of a tourist guide.
Initially, there were some difficulties in speaking in the English language to the tourists from western countries, but after trying again, their broken English got improved.
His childhood name was “Mayoon” but it was difficult for foreign tourists to pronounce Chinese names. He once befriended a foreign tourist and he named him “Jack”.
For 6 years, he worked as a tourist guide, which gave him a very good understanding of English as well as western countries culture.
Career of Jack Ma
Jack Ma was initially wandering in search of a job, he also applied for a police job. But due to their physical ability not conforming to this job, they got frustrated from there too.
When Jack Ma went to America, he got more information about the internet there, though he had heard about it before, but now he got a chance to use it.
The first word he typed on the Internet was BEER (Bear). They found that they got information about bears of many countries of the world, but no information about the species found in China was present on the internet at that time.
Then they searched different things about China. But very little information about China was available on the Internet. Which he did not like, and with the help of some of his friends, he created a website which gave information about China.
Within just a few hours he received many emails which people wanted to know about Jack. By now Jack had realized the endless possibilities of the Internet. Prior to this he used to run a small agency doing a translation (translation). Now Jack wanted to do something new with the help of internet.
In 195, Jack, with the help of some of his friends and wife, deposited 20,000 dollars, including the money taken from his own sister, and created a new website that gave the websites of small companies in China. He named it “China Yellow Pages”. This business also failed due to lack of desired profit.
After doing government work for a few days, he came back to the village and agreed to invest 18 of his friends. And thus together with his friends he laid the foundation of an “Alibaba” company (a startup at the time).
In the initial phase, the office of this company built its own apartment. These days he had no other capital other than the investment of his friends, but later by 19, with the help of some other companies, his investment increased to $ 25 million.
After winning the trust of Chinese people and teaching them to do business on the Internet, now this company has become one of the largest companies in the world.
The journey of a small village boy who did not have even a single rupee to spend, was successful in setting up such a big company just because he had the passion to do something, he had the urge to do something and The most important thing was curiosity to learn something new at all times.
The person who is summoned to learn is sure to touch his success. Even after failing for a thousand times, one day one reaches the position of success, which we find impossible.
