Wouldn't it be great if you were the world's richest person, er second, third? It's a subjective matter that's replete with theories on happiness.
Bill Gates for instance, has manifested his desire to uplift the plight of those in extreme poverty.
I'm proud to say that me and my wife, probably compiled the web's most complete list of Bill Gates Donations.
You may call it my business mogul obsession.
Along with the compilation comes a silly article on "how much money does bill gates have?"
Well, interestingly, it's apparent that his children would have to struggle to reach the status of their father since Bill Gates, masterfully announced that they would be getting little if any of that inheritance money.
The hefty bulk of it would go to charity via the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
THE FORMULA SIMPLIFIED (ACCORDING TO THE MOVIE PIRATES OF SILICON VALLEY)
1. Sell something universally useful to a big corporation (Like an operating system)
2. Partner with hardware manufacturers to have your product sold exclusively
3. Have other people make money out of it too by building programs and applications for it and only for it
4. Make tons of money.
5. Put it in a foundation. Use it to change the world.
It's been repeated time and time again with varying degrees of success.
THE QUESTION IS...?
Who will be the next Bill Gates? Maybe, Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) or Mark Pincus(Zynga).
Everybody has the same dream, make something great, get rich, give it all away, change the world.
