How Some Successful Internet Entrepreneurs Spend Their Money

One of my readers Chu King forwarded me this entry on CBT.com.my about this internet entrepreneur named Terence who runs the web hosting company Shinjiru.com

The article went on about his whole story and how at age 36 drives his very own BMW 5-series.

Read the full article here.
It's just inspiring to see internet entrepreneurs make it, giving us all a glimpse of hope that maybe we could all make it someday too.

I've been lucky to meet Terence a couple of times and hear his story. If anything, his road to success was one with ups and downs but his determination pulled him through.

Once you hear how they made it, it's interesting to see how they spend their money to reward themselves for all their hard work. The successful ones like Terence buy expensive cars.

All I can afford to reward myself with is a weekly scoop of New Zealand Natural.

*sigh*

New Zealand Natural? You got to be kidding me, boss!

BMW aside, I have switched all my clients from others to Shinjiru last year and so far still doing ok. Shinjiru isn't exactly world class and as it grows, a lot of newbies are pretty rotten ... but still ok for now :D

Eh! It seems that in order to be a successful web entrepreneur you've to have certain physical qualities also from what I noted from the other article & they're:

1. The HUGE Face Mole
2. The Glasses

You're on the way la Timmay Boy. On the track :).

in order to succeed, One must have huge mole on their face.

Timothy and Terence both have one.

It shows the truth, that i'm never going to be rich as them.

shinjiru has got to be the most clueless web hosting provider i've ever dealt with. their servers are so misconfigured and their tech support are so clueless that after a heated debate over email, we resorted to giving one of our clients free webhosting on our servers just so that we didn't have to install whatever we built on their shinjiru hosting account.
