Top 50 Companies In The World By Revenue

Introduction

This list was compiled in 2012 and were valid as at the time of compilation, however, the values have since changed. The updated version will be made available as soon as we compile them.

There are companies and there are “The Companies”… Companies are not born equal, some make modest money, some cool money but there is a very small percentage that makes “real money.” That tiny percentage is our focus in this post.

One of the first things that would come to mind is the fact that 6 out of the top 10 on the list are in the oil and gas industry, you might wonder how possible it is for you to build one such company from scratch. My encouragement to you is that the first company on the list, WalMart was built from scratch.

I would also recommend you check out these books that have helped us here at Income Scene for more inspiration. My favourites are Richard Branson’s Losing My Virginity & Business Stripped Bare and Sam Walton’s (of Walmart) Made In America.

There’s hope for anyone who has the desire, but to fulfil all legal righteousness I would have to put something straight here, “I never said you would make the same amount of money as these” so don’t sue me if you don’t! Thanks. Here’s the list (The revenue listed here is in $ Billions).
