Did you hear about that kid who made his 1st million, following his idol Steve Jobs?


I was on my Facebook homepage , and I found Ashton Kutcher ( I’m his Fan on fb) sharing this link http://gizmodo.com/5612145/.

His name: Christian Owens. His age: 16. He made his first million dollars in two years, “inspired by Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs”. This is how he did it.

The British teen—who lives in Corby, Northamptonshire—got his first computer age seven. Three years later he got a Mac and taught himself web design. Four years later—at age 14, in 2008—he started his first company. It was a simple site that some of you may know: Mac Bundle Box. The site was pretty, rooted into Apple’s own design guidelines and style. as cited in gizmodo.com

If you read the original article at the website given above, you’ll see how bright this kid is,in fact, i really admired what he did,dedicating a percentage of the profit he made to charity. that’s really clever,and for a 16-year-old living in a world of idiotized teenagers who have no idea what the heck they wanna do with their lives, this boy is a miracle.

interesting how he employed his 43-year-old mother in the company that he founded.

the company’s idea is simple, he negotiated with MAC application developers to get a discount deal on their apps. The resulting bundle had a combined retail value of around $400, but he would sell it for a tenth of that price. and so, in two years time, he was able to make his first million dollars,equivalent to 700.000 pound sterling.

he has no special formula for success, it’s all about his hard work and determination. way to go Chris!
