P.T. Barnum was one of the most influential people in entertainment during the late 1800s with his “American Museum” in New York City. The museum was full of spectacles that amazed his visitors. Over the years, he linked up with other entertainers to create a traveling circus, which took his curiosities – both animals and people – across the United States.
If you watch the movie The Greatest Showman, you’ll get a look at what one man can do. While the movie is fictional, it is based on the life of P.T. Barnum and his adventure in building an empire. Barnum took the inquisitiveness of human nature and made money off of it for years.
This is something that all entrepreneurs can take note of. Sometimes, a business can be started based on the needs of others. But sometimes, you can find something that strikes a cord within the hearts of other people. Find something that people can be interested in or passionate about, and go from there. People love entertainment. Whether it’s music, movies, or finding something curiously interesting, there is a desire for it.
Find something that you and others can be passionate about. You may run into people who don’t like what you do – but finding those who love your ideas is always worth it.
