“It’s pretty amazing to go from a world where computers were unheard of and very complex to where they’re a tool of everyday life. That was the dream I wanted to make come true and in a large part it’s unfolded as I’d expected.”
“The PC has improved the world in just about every area you can think of. Amazing developments in communications, collaboration and efficiencies. New kinds of entertainment and social media. Access to information and the ability to give a voice to people.” -Bill Gates

if we L I S T E N each of us has within us an idea that could revolutionise the world; a product or way of living life that the world has never seen before. are you willing to do whatever it takes to bring it to the marketplace.

against the advice of his parents, gates dropped out of harvard law to start his own company. he worked tirelessly (night and day) for 5 years with nothing to show for it. his first launch off Microsoft 1.0 was not well received by the world
but that didn’t stop him, he reinvented it and then launch Microsoft 2.0. at 31 years of age, Bill Gates became a billionaire

L I S T E N: what idea is inside you.

as Bill Gates said,”Humanity’s greatest advances are not in its discoveries, but in how those discoveries are applied to reduce inequity.”

Everyone of us has something to say. it will be in listening to the voices of those who are voiceless, that we will find solutions to problems we could not solve. it is in coming together, using the brilliance of our collective mind that we will innovate.

no one has the ability to do what you came here to do. find the courage to create what the world has never seen.

if i can help in any way bring out of you the gift you have for the world,

i am always here to listen.
