What does it feel like to be a self-made millionaire under the age of 25?
Quora is one of our favourite startups, since it brings knowledge and culture all around the world. For this reason, from time to time, we opt to include astonishing answers that we find on Quora on this site. One of the most amazing questions that have been asked on Quora is “What does it feel like to be a self-made millionaire under the age of 25?“.
As many other reporters said “Quora is like Yahoo Answers, but with intelligent answers”. This is completely true and the option to reply to the question as anonymous has increased the value of what we can find on Quora. This is the case of the question we have recently found.
What we found remarkable about these answers was the natural and fluent way people tell their story when they can hide their identity and the realization of the American dream which have been pursued many times and in the last dot com bubble. Although being a millionaire under the age of 25 can be the most interesting experience we could face, it can also be very sad.
As the first answer says “it is a solitary journey”; if you became millionaire thanks to your vision in the early years of your life, you would probably have to live more than fifty years without knowing what to do. You arrive at the point in which you could retire, but you are too young to do it. This might be a difficult journey for most of us, but the only advice we are able to find is to keep going.
If you are young there are dozens of things to do and achieve; your portfolio is going to be there for the next fifty years, it will never let you go. There is just one thing that you are going to lose, no matter how rich you are and how fast your company grew, it is your life.
