It’s time for some Wednesday motivation!
The type of motivation that makes you want to cry because while you’re stuck at the office or at home, Mark Zuckerberg earned $4.7 billion in the first two weeks of 2017!
To put $4.7 billion in context, that is:
1. N1,880,000,000,000! More money than you and I will ever see.
2. It’s more than the GDP of 41 countries — for the entire year.
3. It’s half as much as Donald Trump’s total net worth. (Source: Inc.)
The obscene amount of cash makes Zuck the biggest earner of 2017 so far.
According to reports, no single event was responsible for the immense growth, but links have been made to Facebook’s campaign to tackle fake news content online which made the Company share prices to hit an all-time high. Other reports hint at the fluctuations of the market.
Whether or not the ‘fluctuations’ part is true is not my cup of tea, my concern right now is how I can make 1/4th of N4,700,000,000, before the end of 2017 or 2018 — Is that too much to ask?
