Model Answer:

Introduction:
I am grateful to you for this nice and interesting topic. Here I will try to describe a business person whom I not only know but also admire.

Who this person is:
This business person, whom I am talking about, is Mr Robert Fuller, who is a self-made billionaire and a famous personality in our country. His father was a farmer, and he lost his mother in his childhood. As a result, he could not even finish high school. But with his hard work, determination, talent, timely initiatives and business acumen, he has become one of the greatest businessmen in our country's history.

What kind of business this person is involved in:
Mr Robert Fuller owns a great number of businesses and corporations including automobiles, steel, garments, electronics, furniture, beverage, pharmaceuticals, and airlines. In a TV interview, he once told that he started his career as a salesperson and sold cheap household items from door to door. Now his companies employ more than 45 thousand workers and executives - an exemplary achievement indeed!

What you know about this business person:
After learning about crony capitalism and the insane profiteering scheme of most business people, I try not to admire them enough; however, just as there always is an exception to a rule or norm, Mr Robert Fulle is an exception and that's why deserves respect and admiration from all of us. I have learned a great deal of information about this person from different TV interviews, websites, and news articles, and all of them emphasize how humble and honest he is and how his determination made him such a great businessman from someone who struggled to even manage food for the day and had no fixed place to sleep.

And explain what you think of this business person:
I think that we need more people like him in our society. This way, we will have more icons and role models for our young generation. The way Mr Robert Fuller came to the pinnacle of success is inspiring, and it will teach other business people and aspiring entrepreneurs that honesty and hard work can take you to places never explored before. It can also make you loved by your friends and foes alike. So being an honest businessman and benevolent to others is perhaps the mantra to long-lasting success in life and business - this is what this successful business person has taught us all.
