You may know Pinterest whether you use it or not. Pinterest a free website or a virtual pinboard where users can upload, save, sort, and manage images, links, and other media content. Ben Silbermann is co-founder and CEO of Pinterest. He worked for Google at first for few months. After it, he and his friends together found a small company to develop mobile apps. Then they created a personal media platform, Pinterest on March of 2010.
Pinterest won the Best New Startup of 2011 at the TechCrunch Crunchies Awards. Today it has more than 300 employees. Ben dropped his other goal and ambition to found Pinterest where his passion exist. He followed his passion. Although he got great job at Google, he moved out of comfort zones and started own. They started by small investment. Then they got many investment. Finally it became a successful company.
How about you? Do you dare to drop everything for your passion? Ben Sibermann and other two founders did it. Fear is one of the biggest barrier for entrepreneurs those are willing for success. In Myanmar, you may be afraid of taking adventure in business because of many reasons. Now the market is opening and more and more opportunities. The internet users in Myanmar in 2014 already been more than 3 millions. Not only about internet business, you can also start others. Myanmar is the country where business opportunity is plenty.
As also internet user population is increasing, it is a good time for you to start an online business. Many users are on Facebook, but users will take the culture of surfing other websites. I would like to say you ‘just do it’.
