Is above way your best chance to become a billionaire ? Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Evan Spiegel, Elizabeth Holmes, Travis Kalanick, Drew Houston etc all of them build their wealth/empire with above plan I listed. If you want to become a billionaire you should follow the above list.

Businesses, in order to prosper, require a product to sell. Software is special because once its made once it can be replicated again and again, so the challenge to production is mostly on the front end. You don't really need to worry about spreading half a million copies of your indie game about punching blocks or your website about facing books. You just push it until the zeitgeist grabs hold and doesn't let up until you've got either millions or enough death threats to convince you to back down, as is the case with the angry birds guy.

Why did he get death threats anyway?

>>1042044
But you forgot step zero
>0. Have Jewish relatives
All of the silicon valley people have them or are Jewish themselves. That's how they got big in the first place.

Jack Dorsey and Evan Spiegel are Christians. And Jack Dorsey was raised Catholic

Any number of reasons. Death threats just sort of manifest with any degree of fame, sudden fame even more so. I was told it was for ripping off the mario pipes though.

But they did it in the right time, the boom is almost over.

>Boom

It'll mello out certainly as staples like Facebook manage to keep themselves huge for long periods of time, but the digital market will remain more approachable than the physical markets until 3d printing becomes a viable way to mass produce sturdy things.

This. You missed your chance, OP. No one is going to care about online businesses that can't turn a profit, anymore.

>>1042044
yes! very concise summary.

but you're about a decade too late for that...

3d printing is a fad, It has been around for more than 20 years and it was always shitty, if there is new methods and new technology, sure. But as it is right now, its impossible and merely a gimmick

>>1042044
Good luck. Everyone and their grandmother's trying to do the same thing.

Not saying you won't become a billionaire, I'm just saying it's not as straightforward as it sounds. There are no guarantees.
