According to Forbes, his net worth is $110.8B while Facebook has 2.7B monthly active users.
The American technology entrepreneur became a billionaire by the age of thirty.
However, he didn’t get a swollen head. He is still one of the most modest billionaires in the whole world.
He can walk down the street in a cheap shirt and slippers, and prefers to use a bicycle or an economy car to get to work.
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
Zuckerberg dabbled in programming since he was in school. The version of the “Risk” game was his first creation.
Then, he created Synapse, a media player tracker analysis. Microsoft was ready to pay him a lot for that program. They also offered him a job.
However, Zuckerberg took risks and declined the offer. He already had plans of his own.
According to Zuckerberg, if one had some brains, there was no reason to work for somebody else.
If you've got the idea, start your own business.
Zuckerberg says that “waiting for the right moment” is usually a waste of time.
Silicon Valley companies, for example, can be opened on a whim, even if founders are still not sure what exactly they want to create.
Then you have to listen to your hunch. Thus, you will feel something if the new thing would appear to be a worthwhile one.
Zuckerberg says that it’s extremely hard to succeed without trying hard.
Once Zuckerberg visualized the idea with “likes”, he enlisted the support of his Harvard mates and began to develop the concept of social media (which was named Facebook).
He literally lived beside his computer. Evidently, he had no time for classes, so he was expelled very soon.
Zuckerberg says that if you develop/create something, then it is better to do it as if you plan to use it yourself.
Zuckerberg is an active user of his social network. He visits it every day, and constantly adds new features, which he would like to use. When somebody says that they have neither the ability nor the will to move away from a monitor, Mark feels like he has done his job well.
Despite his passion for programming, the Facebook founder never limited himself to one single sphere of knowledge.
He was good in maths and natural science. Moreover, he studied ancient languages, Classics, and fencing.
Becoming a domain expert is important, but it is equally important not to lose sight of the fact that human life is meaningful, rich, beautiful, and multidimensional.
Move forward, love what you do, do what you love, and do not limit yourself by any means!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
