Have you got the key to a successful future? Some people recorded success in their activities not only because they are extremely hard-working, but also because they think beyond today (present) and invest in tomorrow (future).
Nowadays, it is very hard to see people thinking of tomorrow as most young people only “live for today“.
On many occasions, I have heard people saying “let tomorrow takes care of itself“, I can’t just be bothered! But is it really true that tomorrow can take care of itself without you planning for it? Now let us read the short story of a man who decided to invest in tomorrow!
Facebook painter is ‘in line for £126m’
A GRAFFITI artist who covered Facebook’s offices with murals in return for shares in the social network is getting ready for a reported £126million payday.
David Choe’s once meagre share would be worth the colossal sum once the networking giant floats on the stock exchange.
He swapped a pay packet of just a few thousand dollars for his stake in the firm seven years ago — despite thinking the idea was “ridiculous and pointless” at the time.
But Facebook could be valued at up to £63billion ($100billion) this spring when it goes public on Wall St. And Choe, 35, will be one of at least 1,000 Facebook employees who will become millionaires overnight.
Choe painted the Facebook HQ in Palo Alto, California, in 2005 and was offered the choice of cash or shares by then-president Sean Parker.
Little did Choe know Facebook would eventually boast 845million users across the globe and is still growing. Its membership has swelled by 39 per cent in the past year alone.
The site raked in £632million ($1billion) profits last year and hopes to crack China, where it is currently banned, to grow even more.
Now, would you rather invest in your future ???
