Hi everyone,

I am Will, 31yo, from Europe.

To explain the meaning of this fiery title I need to get into some childhood details.

My father put baby-me in front of a computer a long time ago, at an age I can't remember. My floppies were labeled with drawings, not words.
I was coding at 8, and got my first modem in 1996 at 10. This opened up a new world for me.
Even at this age I knew I was going to make an impact.
Almost all child by default have the entrepreneurial mindset. I had too. At 15 I was earning about 100 USD a month in ad revenues from a blogging platform I had written. I was also running a website hosting service with other smaller things.

Then growing up I dove into the depth of the matrix.

I did what everyone does :
* got a useless (because I already knew the thing) degree in computer science
* took a shitty job making others rich
* then because of the unhappiness due to my job, and still in the matrix mindset, got an MBA

Fastforward today, just finished the books and I can now once again feel this entrepreneurial fire in me. Thank you so much MJ for that.

Next steps :
* Grow the fire
* Find a product/service the world wants and set it on fire too :)

Again, thank you so much MJ !
