An Interesting Life: A Legacy to the World: Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, born May 14, 1984, is an American computer programmer, Internet entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is the chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and co-founder of social networking websiteFacebook

  Together with his college roommates he launched Facebook from Harvard's dormitory rooms. Facebook expanded rapidly, with one billion users by 2012. Zuckerberg was involved in various legal disputes that were initiated by others in the group, who claimed a share of the company based upon their involvement during the development phase of Facebook as the Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, etc. 

He is interesting because he believed in what he was doing it takes a lot of dedication to become successful, and not just during office hours. While Mark Zuckerberg‘s friends were out partying, he would stay in his dorm room and work on coding his website until early in the morning. It is very difficult to put in the hours and hours of hard work needed to build a company from the ground up, without truly believing in and enjoying what you are doing. 

Zuckerberg once said that his mission was to “make the world more open”. Nowadays Facebook unites long lost family members, reports conflicts in areas where free speech is banned, and has been a useful tool in planning uprisings against oppressive governments. Understanding your main aim, whatever it may be, and not getting distracted by unproductive ventures, is the best way to ensure that you reach your goal Mark´s achievements were not the product of luck. He gained everything he has through a combination of hard work, passion, and the courage to dream big. By not shying away from taking risks and moving forward in the face of major competition, it is possible for any entrepreneur to be just as successful.
