Entrepreneurs have many things in common including innovative ideas, a never give up mentality, and a drive to change the world. In this week’s Top 3 Reads we chose three business leaders who’ve beat the odds by running a successful business and are now looked upon for advice. Read these short bios to learn how they’ve done it:

1. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

This entrepreneur from Bangalore, India has now become one of the wealthiest women in India thanks to her biotechnology company, Biocon.

2. Andrew Carnegie

He strongly valued education and gave away 90% of his fortune to charities, foundations and universities before he died.

3. Richard Branson

From dropping out of school, to finding success in the media and travel industry, Richard Branson beat the odds to become the influential leader he is today.
