The Facebook CEO and cofounder’s wealth has spiked in recent months as the company’s stock price continues to reach new highs. On Thursday, he reached another milestone: With a fortune worth $33.3 billion, he’s now worth more than Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, according to Blooomberg’s Billionaires Index. Page is worth $33.2 billion. Brin’s fortune is estimated at $32.9 billion.
At No. 16 on the list, Zuckerberg is also wealthier than No. 20, Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos.
About 10 years ago, Mark Zuckerberg created a little website to help people connect to each other on campus. Today he has been rewarded handsomely, he is on spot #16 on a list of the richest men in the world. Who would have imagined that?
(I agree that Facebook has some real value, but as a company valued at $190 billion, I do not think it is justified. That is just my personal opinion anyway…. I will share my reasoning behind this some other time.)
The real challenge before us this morning is simple enough; what are you creating to help others? Money is merely a reward for solving problems! The main reason you go broke is because you are yet to figure out how to use your (vast) knowledge to solve a problem for people.
