Mark Zuckerberg Is Now Richer Than the Google Guys

I am NOT the hype kind of person, but let us learn from this, shall we?
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.

Watching the World

Do great stuff!
