Life and Business Lessons From Lego

Updated: August 29, 2020

LEGO is probably one of the most popular toys in history.

However, despite our familiarity with this iconic toy, which was probably part of our childhood – I know that not many of us actually know its humble beginnings.

That’s why for its 80th anniversary, The Lego Group has decided to give us a peek into the inspirational story of Lego, to see how it all began.

In this 17-minute animated film, we are taken back in time – and see how LEGO’s founder, Ole Kirk Christiansen, built a business that will eventually become one of the most loved and respected companies of all time.

I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did. It’s truly inspirational, especially for people who want to become entrepreneurs.
