3 Youngest Billionaires And How They Got There

There’s something to be said about people who get rich. That in and of itself is an accomplishment that most of us simply won’t reach. In the past, most people who got rich did so over a fairly long period of time. But as technology has gotten more popular, the world simply moves at a much, much faster pace than it used to. With the advent of YouTube stars, app moguls and the technologically savvy, the truth is that most anyone can be a millionaire these days. Just take a look at the three youngest billionaires in the world:

3. Yang Huiyan

How many times have we heard the old, tired trope of the spoiled kids who inherit all their fortunes and squander it in a matter of years? Far too often of you ask us. Among the more refreshing rich people on this list is Yang Huiyan. Huiyan is the daughter of Chinese real estate mega mogul Yeung Kwok Keung, who owns one of China’s largest real estate development companies. Her father transferred all his shares in the company to his daughter who has taken it upon herself to run the strategic end of the company. She’s worth over $4.9 billion.

2. Dustin Moskovitz

Getting rich these days is about being in the right place at the right time. For Dustin Moskovitz that meant Facebook. Despite all the drama that you’ve probably heard surrounding the infamous website, the fact is that anyone involved pioneered in successfully changed the world as we know it. From the early days in the coding trenches, Moskovitz was responsible for major things that made Facebook work on mobile platforms. Distracted teenagers thank him! So it goes to show you. Be a nerd and hang out with the bigger nerds if you want an in! Moskovitz is worth over $8.1 billion.

1. Mark Zuckerberg

Alright, so you saw this coming, right? Not many days go by without using this man’s incredibly successful invention. Zuckerberg was always a remarkable student and intelligent young man. Though the site has dubious origins with many sordid and admittedly scandalous stories, Zuckerberg’s creation stands for itself. Having changed the way the world communicated as a function. The world is more connected than ever and that’s hard to quantify. Okay, well maybe it isn’t Mark Zuckerberg is worth over $34 billion. Meanwhile, we’re sitting here in debt in our twenties. Still, these three give us hope. All it takes is a great idea, tact, and application to be rich.
