“Joy and her Miracle mop”

From the true story of Joy Mangano, this businesswoman proved that there’s always a silver-lining in a middle of problem where you find in your life. Her first product “The miracle mop” was invented because Joy had realized a trouble with an ordinary mop where you might be cutting from a sharp scrap within a mop as well as it was difficult to clean the ordinary mop. That’s how she came out with the creation, which make our house chores becoming easier after her products were sold well all across the USA and around the world.


In my opinion, Joy’s an amazing model for us striving our goal becoming a successful one like her. Joy proved that as long as we are facing our problems without running away or avoiding; we will get stronger and stronger in which will lead us into a peaking point of life with our strength that we had pushed forward everyday!
