I wrote about a company called the Chocolate Farm in my book Starting an Online Dummies in 1998. It was started by a brother and sister, Evan and Elise MacMillan, of Denver, Colorado. At the time Evan was 15 and Elise was 13. They started out selling chocolates with a farm theme, such as candy cows. The business grew steadily until they employed 50 people. They were on the Oprah show; they were featured in People Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.

I contacted Evan to see how things were going, and found out that the Chocolate Farm has been acquired, for an amount he would not disclose. Evan reported that the Chocolate Farm helped he and Elise through college. Evan is apparently a born entrepreneur. He has had four startup companies and is starting a fifth. He now lives in the land of startups, Palo Alto, CA. “I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing something entrepreneurial forever,” he says.

    Sharing success stories of different business is a good practice to inspire people and motivate them to work hard. The above story shows the efforts of a brother and sister from their childhood who at the end reached to a bigger level and started their business online.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
