Meet the Next Billionaires

This article in Newsweek spotlights some undergraduates that I know at work (I was the one kids advisor for awhile). They turned down two million for their software for a better offer.

Some days I think I'm underpaid. After all, I'm helping mold them into productive adults. haha.

Yes, but it doesn't appear that they'll be hanging around long enough for anyone to turn them into PhDs!


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.

Speaking of billionaires, I just heard that one of the co-creators of Google got married. I hope he had a good prenup!
