FedEx would not be here if not for a game of Blackjack
FedEx is a very successful company, and pretty much a house-hold name throughout America now. But in its early years it came very close to liquidation as they faced a $24,000 fuel bill, and there was only $5,000 left in the company bank.
So FedEx founder and CEO, Fred Smith decided to take the $5,000 out of the bank and he head top Las Vegas. He turned the last $5,000 the company had into $27,000 at the Blackjack table, was able to pay the fuel bill, and now the company brings in billions in revenue every year.
