Hugh Hefner and controversy is synonymous. But, undeniably he was one of the most successful businessman of the millennium who has inspired anyone who has entrepreneurial dreams. His now not-so-famous rabbit logo is the symbol of how strong will, hard work, passion and determination can take you to a whole-new heights. Hefner has left a lot more than Playboy legacy behind for those upcoming entrepreneurs.
Hard Work Always Pays!
Hefner left Esquire to start Playboy from his kitchen table in 1952, and all for $5 raise. He was relentless and worked hard towards the success. Like any other start-up owner, his path was not smooth and he faced his own share of obstacles. But, his hard work and determination helped him to become what he wanted to become!

Playboy empire was not built in a day. It took years of persistence from a man who had a vision. Although the magazine was a phenomenal success, the other ventures of Hefner didn’t go too well, including his TV shows and Casinos. With his core business strongly built, Hefner was able to overcome failures and still stay on top of magazine work for decades.
