Some entrepreneurs create their own successful companies. However, as the size of the companies grow they take in more and more investors. Sometimes, it happens that the investors and the shareholders become more powerful. They even make decisions about the policies, as well as, hiring and firing.

All these stories show us how the world of entrepreneurship can be risky.The notable success of a company does not guarantee the longevity of its leader. In any case, we admire the courage of those businessmen who have created successful businesses even if they could not stay on board until the end of their careers.
