Despite the fact that Ben Franklin had very little education, he still continued to become an entrepreneur, writer, inventor, printer, and founded the first public library. Ben Franklin was not forgotten, and did things worthy to be on the one hundred dollar bill.
Ben Franklin was an entrepreneur, because he invented things and took a risk when trying to sell them at only eleven years old, he created swim fins to have an extra thrust through water. Another one of his first creations of Ben franklin the art of advertisement. Around 1704 franklin made advertising more professional, and he used advertisement to sell his own franklin stove in hopes of selling more paper. The Franklin stove was a metal-lined fireplace that placed in the middle of the room better heat the whole room in house. In 1746, he invented the electric lightning rod that was used to protect buildings from lightning. Another invention in 1761 was the armonica. It was a musical instrument used by rubbing your fingers around the rim of the glass filled with water. One of the latest and greatest of his inventions was the bifocal glasses. Bifocals were glasses that separated the far vision from the close vision. Even though Ben franklin was an entrepreneur and an inventor he was a printer, writer, and founder of the public library.
At the young age of twelve, Ben worked as a printer for his older brother at his printing business. While working as a printer, he visualized being a writer. In 1729 he used his entrepreneurial printing skills to open his own print shop and began his own newspaper. The Pennsylvania Gazette. By having the newspaper, it open the door for his writing. He wrote about different topics such as crime, health issues, and disasters. The people in colonial America craved information fact about their daily life and therefor Ben Franklin wrote the poor Richard’s Almanac in 1732. He did this to strengthen people’s minds and be smarter. He provided wise quotes, jokes, weather, advise, and times of sunrise and sunset.
Obviously all the things that Ben Franklin were important enough to have him on the hundred dollar bill. He was born poor but he died a wealthy man. He left a legacy that has been with us through thick and thin.
