PEORIA – Ten years ago, Michael Delazzer did not know his invention would spread to more than 40,000 thousand locations nationwide.
Now, he is one of the most nation’s successful entrepreneurs. Delazzer, co-founder of movie rental company, Red Box, spoke to aspiring entrepreneurs at Bradley University on Wednesday. The product first launched in 2004.  He gave advice for those looking to strike gold with the next big idea.
 "People go down this path, they fail. My message to them is so what? Who cares? The thing is to continually get up and do something over and over again, until you succeed,” said Delazzer.
Delazzer says it's a message everyone should hear, even adults. He says the days of television and movies -- as we know it—are coming to an end. Soon, consumers will only want to pay for they want to watch when they want to watch it.
