How to become a Billionaire in 20 Months


Hmmm….so how do you make a billion in 20 months? Find a cure for a killer disease? Invent an alternative to the World’s never ending quench for Oil? All likely and probable answers to making someone a very rich person – very quickly…………..Alternatively, you could maintain and run a website from your garage – upload (bucketloads of) silly pointless videos and sell it to Google for a cool $1.65 billion dollars (yes, that’s billion)….Well, that’s exactly what the YouTube co-founder’s did.

So who are the brainchilds behind the infamous YouTube site? Some metaphysics professors? Some astrodynamic internet protocal scientists? Ermmm….well no….actually Chad Hurley and Steven Chen.

Check out Chad and Steve’s remarks on their sale of Youtube to Google.  I think you’ll be shocked at how ‘normal’ and err….frankly un-business-like these guys are! (ok, I’m just jealous).

    I know what you mean. I have seen this a couple of times .. people who are unprofessional looking, but very dedicated to what they are doing.. then they get funding, but in Kuwait we dont have any type of people who are looking to fund something that because it doesnt have immediate profit..
