These days we are hearing about Billionaires more frequently than ever. Different acquisitions of startups by companies like Facebook, Apple, Google are making their founder a Billionaire. Take WhatsApp for example, who would have thought that Facebook would buy it for $19 Billion..! But attaining a Billionaire status couple of decades back was not an easy thing. It took Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (don’t know why, but i hate him, may be i’m jealous of his sudden billionaire status) 3 years to get the first $1 Billion, whereas for Rupert Murdoch, an Australian business magnate, it took over 40 years to make the 1st Billion. Would you believe it. Anyway let’s talk about today’s post.
