Success Story of J.K Rowling
We all know J.K. Rowling’s story already, but that doesn’t make it any less inspiring. She was as “poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless.” She was a single mother with no job, living on welfare and struggling with clinical depression. Still, Rowling would take her infant daughter to coffee shops and write, and in 1995, she finished the manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone… which was immediately rejected by twelve publishers. Bloomsbury finally accepted the book, but warned her not to quit her day job, since it probably wouldn’t make much money.
The rest is history.
