Amazon has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years. As shown in the visualization, in 2005, this company generated $8.49 billion in revenue. In the next decade, this number would increase to over $107 billion dollars. That jump represents over a 1000% increase. Amazon's competitors have struggled to maintain this kind of growth. The brick and mortar stores such as Target and Best Buy have found it hard to adapt to an e-commerce world. Amazon's CEO, Jeff Bezos, has demonstrated how long-term thinking and betting on the future can help drive a business toward success.
