Bill Gates

One of the greatest role models of business in this day and age would have to be the founder of Microsoft “Bill Gates“. If he is not battling it out with Warren Buffet or Carlos Slim on the “Forbes Top 100 Richest Men In the World” list, he is travelling the world with his wife Melinda Gates donating his billions to charity, being an active philanthropist.

Bill Gates confesses he was a last minute guy when it came to handing things in at school at never really took study & business seriously until his company Microsoft found its legs. In this post Bill Gates shares with us his Top 11 tips for Success that you will never learn in school, only in the real world and life experiences.
Bill Gates 11 Tips For Success You Will Never Learn In School:

 

1: Life is not fair – get used to it!

2: The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

3: You will NOT make $90,000 a year right out of high school.

4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: opportunity.

6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes – learn from them.

7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills and listening to you talk about how cool you are.

8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT.

9: Life is not divided into terms. You don’t get summers off, and very few employers are interested in helping you “find yourself”. Do that in your own time.

10: TV is not real life. In real life, people have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs..

11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one!

    I am a great Microsoft fan, and I always like Windows. But I hate Bill Gates, because of the tips he gave. I can only agree with tips number 6, 7 and 11. I strongly disagree with the rest of his tips, especially tips number 1, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 10. Those tips are the worst I have ever heard. Bill Gates is trying to tell people that life is all about work and money. Such tips will destroy people’s mind and the world, and will erode cultural and religious values. I strongly advice everyone not to follow his tips except 6, 7 and 11. BILL GATES SUCKS !!!

My first experience with entrepreneurship involved dumpster diving. I was 10 years old and wanted to make some money. There was a warehouse that manufactured stickers close to where we lived, so what did I do? I hopped the fence and dove into the dumpster after the sheets of reject stickers that were smudged or uneven. These were skate and surf stickers with big name brands like T&C (Town & Country) and Vuarnet. I sold them for 25 cents a pop. (more…)
