Who Are Top Five Successful Millennial Entrepreneurs!?

Millennials, also known as Peter-Pan Generation, from early  '80s to the '90s, early 2000s, happened to be superb movers, holding the business power, and here are the five in top class.

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (born May 14, 1984) is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is the chairman, chief executive officer, and co-founder of Facebook.His net worth is estimated to be US $53.6 billion as of 2017, ranking him the 5th richest person in the world.

Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy

The founders of Snapchat, the photo app that lets users upload images and decide when those images will vanish from view.
Snapchat has become another way for people to put up benign and racy pictures to test out public reaction, knowing they can pull them in a short period of time.
Spiegel and Murphy’s app dominates the young teenage market, in which looking good is the currency of becoming popular and well-liked. Your eyes may pop when you realize that these two entrepreneurs turned down $3 billion from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to buy their company.

Eric Butler

Eric Butler, 26 years, is a king of protection. Butler is a security expert who commands high fees for creating network security protocols for major corporations.
He is also the inventor of Firesheep, a computer intrusion program that lets companies see how vulnerable their systems are to hackers.
Butler’s relentless pursuit of a security protection always makes him in-demand, and his latest efforts are related to showing mobile phone manufacturers how easy it is for blackhat hackers to compromise an ordinary SIM card and obtain sensitive information on mobile phones.

 Tracy Chou

 Chou, 26, is one of the brightest and most sought-after software engineers in the world.
After intern stints at Facebook and Google, she now works at Pinterest, despite heavy pressure from the Facebook-financed site Quora to become one of its lead software engineers. Chou’s a big brain too, and holds two degrees from Stanford.

 John and Patrick Collison

Two brothers who grew up in Ireland, John Collison, 23 and Patrick Collison, 25, are the creators of Stripe, a Paypal like service that lets users make online payments in nearly a dozen countries.
The Collisons raised funding from a diverse group of companies to start Stripe, and the company is now valued at nearly $2 billion, which is pretty good, considering the initial startup money they raised was a ‘mere’ $50 million.

How the Most Successful People Spend the First 30 Minutes of Their Workday

Does it ever seem like some people you know are advancing rapidly in their careers or businesses, while you seem to be just plodding along? Chances are you're not doing one simple thing that can make all the difference to achieving your goals. You're not putting yourself first.

In the personal finance world, experts often advise people to "pay yourself first." The idea is that when a paycheck or other payment comes in the first thing you should so is put a portion of it into your savings and only then pay your bills and other financial obligations.

Most of us, of course, instinctively do the opposite. We first pay our bills and then put money into savings if there's any left over. The problem, of course, is that there very rarely is any money left over. So our bills get paid, but we never manage to save much, making it impossible to reach our financial goals. This is why 401(k) programs are so powerful: They literally force you to pay yourself first by putting money into savings before you can pay anyone else.

Unfortunately, most of us take a similar approach with our time, a resource even more valuable than money. On any given workday we are faced with an array of tasks that we need to complete to fulfill our commitments to our customers, satisfy our bosses, meet our deadlines, and give our employees the support that they need.

But then there's another whole set of tasks. These usually have no deadlines, and there's no customer or colleague waiting impatiently for you to get them done. In fact, there's a good chance that nothing will result if you do them because they are often speculative in nature. These are tasks such as pitching new customers, researching possible markets your company could enter, or trying to develop a new product. If your initiative succeeds, you'll be a hero, but there's every chance that it may fail. 

It may seem foolish to devote your time to projects that may pan out when there are paying customers waiting for you to deliver. Yet I'm suggesting you do just that for just half an hour a day. Here's how it works:

1. Take 30 minutes of each day and spend them on a speculative or dream project that could yield big dividends. 
You could also spend them on research, or on learning more about your industry. If there's something that has real potential to move you forward and that you love to do, choose that. (If, like me, you're a Pomodoro Technique user, spend one pomodoro on your dream task.)

Why just half an hour? Wouldn't an hour be better? It might, but that would mean taking a big enough chunk out of your day that you might not be able to do it consistently. If a major deadline is looming or your boss is waiting impatiently for you to finish a proposal, will you really be able to set those concerns aside for a whole hour while you work on your dream project? Whereas there are few obligations so urgent that you can't sneak away for half an hour.

2. Make it the first half-hour of your workday.
Why? For the same reason that 401(k)s work so well: You're paying yourself first. You could turn to the most urgent tasks instead, hoping you'll have a half hour left over at the end of the day for your dream project. But most of the time you won't. 

There's another good reason to take your half hour of "me" time at the start of the day: Neuroscientists report that the beginning of our workday is usually a great time to work on a creative project or other task that requires your brain to be functioning at its best. 

3. Block out interruptions.
For this to work well, you should block out your half hour with no interruptions, for instance by closing your office door and turning off your phone. If necessary, put a sticky note on your door explaining that you'll be available in half an hour or less. And whatever you do, don't read your email before or during your "me" time, except for message specific to what you're working on.

4. When the 30 minutes are up, stop.
Even if you're on a roll and the work is flowing along like never before, stop when your time is up. Why is this important? Because if you sit down to work on something for half an hour but don't stop until two hours have passed, it will be twice as hard to keep that date with yourself tomorrow because you won't trust yourself to stop on time and get back to your most pressing tasks. You can always schedule some more time to work on your project later on if it seems to warrant it. But for now, stick to your commitment to stop after 30 minutes.

5. Track your progress.
It's easier to stick with something if it's yielding measurable results. So keep track of how you spend your "me" time. Make note of whether you managed to do it every day, or if there were some days it got swept aside. And track your progress on your dream projects and goals as well. That should help you understand what's working, what isn't, and how you can best spend your time.

6. Don't feel guilty.
If you feel like you're stealing time away from what you should be doing, get over it. The things you do during your "me" time create more potential to benefit your company and customers than if you simply focused on your existing tasks. Google famously allocated one full day a week for its engineers to work on whatever they wanted, and Gmail is just one of many widely used products to emerge from that practice.

What new products or initiatives will result your own whatever-I-want-to-work-on time? It's time to find out.

He Wants You Successful

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father
which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in
heaven (Matthew 6:9-10). 
The underlined portion of the scripture above
is simply amazing. If this wasn’t supposed to
be answered, Jesus wouldn’t have taught the disciples
to pray this way. It reveals the Father’s desire for His
will to be established on earth as it is in heaven. This
means it’s His will for you to prosper, be healthy and
strong, vibrant, successful, fruitful and productive, for
these are consistent with His nature.
There’re no obstructions, hindrances, lack or
struggling in heaven. Therefore, nothing should limit
you; you ought not to struggle for anything in your
life! You’re called to reign and function from a position
of rest. If you’re in lack or experiencing any kind of
setbacks, don’t despair. Set your mind on the Word,
and walk in His light, and He’ll bring you to your
destiny in Christ.
3 John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as
thy soul prospereth.” He’s talking to you; you’re His
beloved. You may say, “I don’t experience the love
of God; I don’t know if God loves me.” He alreadylove hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). No wonder He wants His perfect will done in your life.
Your life isn’t for poverty, failure or defeat; it’s for the glory of God. The world is full of poor and
defeated people, but we’re the ones to reach out and help them. You’re God’s channel of blessing to
your world; that’s why He wants you to be successful, fruitful, and productive.  proved His love for you the greatest way: “Greater 
Prayer
Dear Father, yours is the greatness,
the power, the glory, the majesty,
and the splendour, for everything
in heaven and earth is yours.
Your blessing brings wealth, with
no painful toil for it; therefore, I
refuse to struggle in life, because
I’m in your rest. I’m prosperous
and successful in every good
work, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
