(3) Henry Ford
It is not a widely known fact that Henry Ford was already 45 when he unrolled the Model T car. Later, Ford’s factories were renowned for their assembly line method of operation, which transformed manufacturing and the automobile industry. Ford’s success later in life was likely fueled by his drive to succeed, as well as the many innovators who helped him along the way. Ford had a meeting with Edison at the end of the nineteenth century. Edison encouraged Ford in his early career, paving the way for the Model T’s appearance on the market in 1908.
