Success stories can come in any form and has no established formula or method. We are definitely aware of the bad stories anger and sometimes revenge can create; However factboyz brings to you success stories of business that were created out of pure revenge and anger; Hope you enjoy the list!

1.  Virgin AirwaysRichard Branson likely never planned to start his own airline business when he was younger, however, 30 years ago, he became so infuriated with American Airlines, he decided to make some changes. He was in Puerto Rico and he was booked on a flight to the British Virgin Islands. When there weren’t enough passengers to fill the plane, the airline canceled the flight. According to Branson, he had a woman waiting for him, therefore, he needed to get home quickly. He decided to hire a plane and he borrowed a blackboard and he wrote “Virgin Airlines” on it. He rounded up all of the passengers who had been bumped, charged them $39 to fly one way to the British Virgin Islands, and that is how he filled his first plane. When he got home, he searched for Boeing 747’s for sale, and his airline was born.

2.  Fed ExIn 1965, Fed Ex founder, Frederick Smith wrote a term paper about the shipping industry and its flaws. He invented an industry on paper and laid out all of the logistics. He proposed a system of shipping important items to people without relying on passenger route systems. After serving in the military, in August 1971, Smith got a job with Arkansas Aviation Sales located in Little Rock. While working there, he saw how difficult is was to get packages shipped to him in a day or two. After inheriting $4 million from his father, he used the information from his term paper and created Fed Ex. Finally, he was able to get a package in one or two days.

3.  NetflixNetflix is one of the 10 great successful businesses created by revenge. The company was created by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings. Originally, the idea for Netflix was to sell various items over the internet. While the men were planning their business, Reed Hastings rented Apollo 13 in 1997. He forgot to return it and he ended up having to pay a $40 late fee. This made him so angry that he decided to rent movies over the internet rather than sell products. Soon Netflix was born, which drove video stores around the world out of business. Netflix is currently available in 190 countries and users can either get DVD’s in the mail or they can live stream movies and television shows. Reed made sure that Netflix would never have a late charge and users could keep the dvds as long as they liked.

4.  SpotifySpotify was developed by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon. They were fed up with standing in line to get their favorite CDs so they signed up with Napster. When they started to charge for their service and eventually shut down, the two man started paying $2 a song from Apple Tunes, which they resented. They decided to create a free music service that would last. After working in a tiny apartment, which only contained a mattress, Spotify was born.

5. The GapThe Gap was founded by a man named Donald Fisher and his wife Doris in 1969. The couple hated shopping for jeans because they could never find any that fit them just right. To solve their problem, they decided to open up their own store that carried jeans in plenty of sizes and styles so that everyone could find the right size jeans. They raised $63,000 to open their first store. After the second year, they had reached $2 million in sales. They decided to branch out and open additional stores. Today, The Gap is one of the largest clothing stores in the world.

6. IntelThe three founders of Intel, Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Arthur Rock all decided to leave Fairchild, the company that they worked for because all of their companies would not let them create or invent. Instead, they left them doing administrative duties. In the end, they founded Intel, where they invented the first microprocessor. If Fairchild had only allowed them to invent rather than hand administrative, they would have become a household name. Instead, it is Intel.

7.  Liverpool Football ClubThe Liverpool Football Club was founded in 1892. A man named Tom Watson bought a stadium for Everton Football Club and at the last minute, Everton pulled out. Watson was left with a stadium and not team. He decided to form his own football club, which went on to win two league championships. Today, they are the most successful league in England.

8. ActivisionActivision is a video game publisher. Before Activision, third party developers did not exist. The founders of Activision, Larry Kaplan, Allen Miller, David Crane, and Bob Whitehead were working for Atari. They met with the CEO to demand that the company treat the developers the way the music business treated artists, buy paying them royalties on anything with their name on it. When Atari refused, the men decided to create Activision, where they could get credit and payment for their hard work.

9.  DysonDyson is a vacuum company created by James Dyson. After he bought a Hoover vacuum cleaner, he found that it got clogged very quickly and it didn’t provide enough suction. The only time he could restore proper suction was to keep putting in a fresh bag. He decided that he would develop a better vacuum cleaner with more suction. After visiting a local sawmill, he saw an industrial cyclone and he found the solution to his suction problem and Dyson was born. Dyson was born out of Hoover’s shortcomings.

10. Puma/AdidasIn 1924, two German brothers Rudolf Dassler and Adolf Dassler created a shoe company called Gebruder Dassler Schuhfabrik. In 1948, the two had a falling out and they realized that they could no longer work together. They decided to split and start their own companies. One brother created Puma and the other created Adidas. It is hard to tell which brother got his revenge since both brothers’ businesses is successful worldwide.

11. LamborghiniThe creator of Lamborghini originally owned a tractor company called Lamborghini Trattori, and he produced tractors from leftover military hardware. He was driving a Ferrari at the time and he was personally insulted by the founder of Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari. To get his revenge, he switched from manufacturing tractors to cars.

Politics / Top 10 Reasons Why We Need At Least 5 Hugs Per Day by Abjay97(m): 10:24am On Mar 25, 2019

Hugging is indeed a well-known therapy that has a powerful way of healing. Research that has been carried out shows that hugging as well as laughter is extremely effective at healing sicknesses, loneliness, anxiety and of course, stress. Research also shows that a nice, proper good, deep hug where two people come together, can help benefit in these ten ways Factboyz has compiled.

1. The soothing touch of a good hug helps build trust and increase the sense of safety. This also helps with increasing bonding through open and honest communication.

2. Hugs actually boosts oxytocin levels instantly which help in healing feelings if loneliness, isolation and anger

3. Seretonin levels are increased especially when hugs last for an extended time increasing and elevating moods and in the creation of happiness
4. Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge creates activates the SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA. This actually stimulates the thymus gland responsible for body regulation and balance of the body’s production of white blood cells which keeps you healthy and disease free.

5. Hugging boosts self-esteem. We all have the need to feel special and loved and when someone appreciates your self-worth through hugging, it increases the ability to self love. This is evident when parents show love to their little baby son or daughter and the child in return feels loved and self-esteem is successfully boosted.

6. Hugging and Hugs relaxes the muscles. They release tension in the body. They soothe aches by increasing the circulation into the soft tissues.

7. The energy exchange between the people hugging is an investment in the relationship. It encourages empathy and understanding. Virginia Satir, a respected family therapist, said “We need eight hugs per day for maintainance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth; I find love as a miracle drug”

8. Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Huge educate us how love flows both ways.

9. Hugs are very much like meditation and laughter. They teach us how to let go and be present in the moment. They encourage us to flow with the energy of life.

10. Hugs balance out the nervous system. The galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance. The effect in moisture and electricity in the skin suggests a more balanced state in the nervous system parasympathetic.
