Rudyard Kipling
At 41, Rudyard Kipling became the highest-paid writer in the world. Abandoned by his parents at 6 years old and tortured as a child by his foster carers, Kipling went on to win the Nobel prize for literature in 1907 - the youngest recipient ever - and at his funeral in 1936 his coffin was carried by a prime minister, an admiral, a general, and the head of a Cambridge college. So next time you're crafting that perfectly worded Facebook post, consider Kipling who took the same words and turned them in to cold hard cash and a literary legacy.
