When you hear the name Bill Gates, you probably think of billionaires with a net worth of $ 119 billion or Microsoft's founder, who changed the field of computing, or philanthropy, donates most of his wealth to solve problems around the world. But there is something else you may not know about: Bill Gates is a man who lives two different lives. And it started with a big decision 20 years ago.
Gates had previously been an entrepreneur who had asked to quit Harvard to start Microsoft and build a company Most successful in the field of computer software. That was also the time when he became known as the CEO who never took a vacation and the leader who tied the knot. Remember the staff's vehicle number to know which employees are committed to dedicating their personal life to the company and coming to work Weekends.
But he has changed. On January 13, 2000, he announced that he had decided to step down as Microsoft's CEO and on March 24 In January 2000, he announced that he had donated $ 5 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Obviously, many billionaires have promised that they want to donate to the society after building a fortune, but many do not. There are opportunities to do so, such as Apple's Steve Jobs, who passed away in 2011.
Gates is unlike any other billionaire, and no one ever anticipated that he would. But since leaving the company, he has used his life, wealth and influence to do two things: personal development Improving the quality of life around the world. Edited by: Sokhuk
