1 Simple Way to Become a Billionaire

Even if you don't have a Facebook account, you should check out the new movie The Social Network.  I've been amazed with the rise of Mark Zuckerberg from the moment I learned about him. He created Facebook from his dorm room at Harvard just a few years ago and now there are 500 million people who use Facebook worldwide.  As you watch the film, you'll soon discover it was not only Zuckerberg who had the idea.  This is a four star movie in my book, but this blog is more about Zuckerberg then the movie. I'm fascinated not only with the fact that he has become the youngest billionaire ever, but in his lack of interest in the money.  Zuckerberg doesn't have a billion in the bank, it's all on paper.  However, he could still buy himself lots of cool things if he wanted to do it. He doesn't. The articles and interviews I've read about Zuckerberg talk about his simple life style which includes driving an Acura TSX and living in a rather modest home in California that I believe he rents.  Don't get me wrong, an Acura TSX is a nice car.  I have one, but if I had a billion dollars I might be driving something else. Zuckerberg was offered 1 billion from Google (or maybe it was Yahoo) for Facebook, but he turned it down.  From what I can tell it wasn't because he wanted more money.  He simply wanted to make sure that what he created continues to evolve.  I truly believe Zuckerberg loves what he created and wants to see where he can take it next.  He doesn't want to do it for the money, but rather to make the world more open and connected.  Keeping the world open and connected is part of his mission statement.   Whether that's a good idea can be saved for another blog.  However, his love for his plan is the secret to becoming a billionaire.  You've probably heard this before, but it's really true.  Here's the key to making big bucks: Find the thing you are passionate about and work like hell to keep that passion alive.  Work day and night to make what you're passion about grow and evolve and then the money will follow.
