Hello there, readers! Just over the weekend, Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba became the richest man in China with a whopping net worth of over $16 billion. If you haven’t read our previous articles on his tips on how to successful in life and business, and why he thinks you’re still poor at the age of 35, you’re missing out! And to continue to inspire and motivate you, check out our next article in the CEO Series which is about how we can preserve trust with our employees, sponsors, and co-workers, even if we fail in the business!
Last week, we spoke to the founder of the app Spotted who aims to completely change the way we see advertisements by actually paying users to scrutinize them! So you’re going to actually want to stare at that lunch set meal a little harder! Malaysian company FOBO isn’t doing so bad either, having tripling their target funds on IndieGoGo, which is a huge accomplishment for any kickstarter. We spoke to them on their goals and plans for their innovative creation – a tire-monitoring sensor.
Too much to read, and so little time. Better start getting updated!
