2. Walt Disney
It is hard to believe that the creator of the world’s most successful cartoon studio and the happiest place on earth filed for bankruptcy. But, everyone has to struggle at some point of time before achieving success, and that is what Walt Disney did. He filed for bankruptcy in 1920 at the time when his animation company’s financial backer went broke, as stated by a report of the USlegal.com. Although, Disney bounced back after creating Mickey Mouse; he again fell into deep debt, where he almost declared bankruptcy for the second time. This was during the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was his first major animation movie. And, once again, Disney was financially saved by the success of his animated characters.
