Mark Zuckerberg turns 35 today.

Net worth:

Age 35: $71 billion
Age 34: $77 billion
Age 33: $65 billion
Age 32: $52 billion
Age 31: $35 billion
Age 30: $26 billion
Age 29: $13 billion
Age 28: $17 billion
Age 27: $14 billion
Age 26: $4 billion
Age 25: $900 million

Became the then youngest self-made billionaire at age 23.

Facebook has gone true fourteen funding rounds. Facebook went public (Initial Public Offering) in 2012. Yet Zuckerberg holds about 60 percent voting shares.

That's genius in an industry that has a history of a certain Steve Jobs who founded Apple and got forced out in 1985. Yeah. Steve got forced out of the company he founded. He returned in 1997.

I'd argue that his investors love it with him. Peter Thiel is famous for his five hundred thousand dollars investment in Facebook in the early days, that turned into more than 1 billion dollars in cash.

Mark is not just your regular tech founder. I often think his wisdom and courage is beyond his age.

This post does not in any way absolve Mark of Facebooks' recent atrocities. I am aware of them.

However, I have learnt to love and admire people I don't even agree with.

However the swing of your opinion of Mark Zuckerberg, one thing you would readily agree with is that...

Mark Zuckerberg is an outlier.

      @seunoyebode - He is too young for all this money. Where was I when he was quadrupling his money. He makes me realize how little I have done.
