John Deere was a college dropout and didn’t have much formal education. He lost his father at a young age and his mother who was a blacksmith trained him to become one. His life took a turn when his blacksmithing company got bankrupt and he had to sell it off to his father-in-law. He then went to Illinois and started working as a blacksmith. During that time, there were hardly any blacksmith in that area and hence he had absolutely no trouble in finding some work there. He produced his first plow in 1837 and since then there was no turning back for him. In the coming years, he sold many plows to the local farmers and was constantly getting orders to produce ninety to 100 plows every year.
