Billionaires Overnight

This week Jan Koum just sold his 4 year old company, WhatsApp, to Facebook for $19 Billion(!) He drove to the North County Social Services office to sign the deal. That’s where he used to stand in line to collect food stamps not so long ago. Jan has gone from having no money to $19 Billion in four years (That works out at at every day in retrospect being worth over $13 million, day after day for four years). How did he do that and what can we learn behind the crazy-big numbers? Back in 2009 the idea was hatched in the kitchen of Jan’s friend, Alex Fishman. Alex recalls “Jan was showing me his address book, His thinking was it would be really cool to have statuses next to individual names of the people.” Within a month, Jan had

3 Steps To $1Billion

18 months & 3 simple, not-so-simple steps to $1 billion… Today, Instagram sold to Facebook for $1 billion. A week ago, when TIME asked Instagram founder, Kevin Systrom, if he would sell the company, he said “It’s not really on the top of our minds right now.” Kevin is 27 years old and started Instagram 18 months ago with Mike Krieger, in October 2010. The company has grown with just 4 staff, and today has just 9 in the team. With the $1 billion deal that was announced today, was Kevin just plain lucky, or was there some simple steps that he (and others who have had the same luck) have in common? Here’s three steps he followed. They may not guarantee you exactly the same success – but they will increase your own good fortune: 1. THINK BIG FROM

The Billion Dollar Tweet

Here’s a tweet Travis Kalanick sent in January 2010. The reply from Ryan Graves happened 3 minutes later. That tweet was worth over a billion dollars. January 2010 was the month Travis was doing a test run with 3 cars in New York for a mobile app that he and his friend, Garrett Camp, had just created. They had decided it was time to start a company around the app and, needing to find a GeneralManager to run it, Travis took to Craigslist and Twitter looking for the right person. Ryan’s reply to Travis came as he was looking for something new. He had some experience at GE, and had worked for Foursquare for a while for free after the company turned him down for a job. He was ready for a new opportunity – and took a chance with

Taking Advantage of Your Fear of Failure

Right, we all have dreams and different goals that we would love to achieve in our lifetime. Unfortunately because of our perfectionist society and our convectional educational systems, we have been conditioned to believe that failing is a bad thing. That the consequence of failing should be punishment or you should suffer, but the truth is; failing is just part of the equation to succeed in any aspect of our lives. Why Do We Feel Afraid? Fear it self, is simply part of our defensive mechanism. The adrenaline released when we are afraid helps us to be prepared for action. I often hear people saying; ‘I just do not know what do to, I have a lot of ideas but I am afraid of failing.’ At first it amuses me and I become happy, because I know that there is
