The Walt Disney Company hasn't always bundled their princesses together in one big marketing bundle. Sure, it seems obvious to do that now, but the '90's were weird and nobody knew any better.

Walt Disney is commonly looked at as a successful entrepreneur. A good example of what you can achieve if you simply roll up your sleeves and do it.
