Famous People’s First Jobs — Infographic

Famous People’s First Jobs

We all have to start somewhere!  Before they were famous, all these people had some rather un-glamorous jobs.  Remember that it is extremely rare to start off as the CEO of a major company, or even in a private office at one, but through lots of hard work and dedication, anyone can succeed and become whatever they dream of becoming!  [VIA]

Unusual Drive-Throughs — Infographic

Unusual Drive-Throughs

We are an on the go society, and for many most of the day (for better or worse) is spent in the car or at least in a hurry to get somewhere else.  Often it’s convenient to stay in your vehicle and get whatever goods or services you need right from the driver’s seat.  What was once a convenience only of fast food restaurants and banks is now branching out into other venues.  Check out some of the more unusual places you can drive through to get what you need.  Sadly, one of the famous drive-through trees, the Pioneer Cabin Tree, was lost earlier this year in a storm.  [VIA]

Famous Brands That Have Undergone Successful Name Changes — Infographic

20 Famous Brands That Have Undergone Successful Name Changes

Yesterday we took a look at how the logos of some famous corporations and brands have changed over the years, and you may have notices that some, like IBM and Firefox were radically different from their first to most recent logo.  This isn’t because of a simple drastic re-design, but because those companies actually changed their names along the line. There are many reasons why companies and their brands will change names, usually because of a merger or sale along the way.  In some cases the loss of a familiar name and iconic brand has sent consumers looking elsewhere, but in some cases, as shown here, they become much more successful than ever.  [VIA]
