    21-year-old Catherine Cook sold her startup, MyYearbook, for $100 million to QuePasa.

    We got her and CEO Geoff Cook on the phone. They told us how they grew the company to a 9-figure exit in six years

    This is a great lesson for all of us. Sometimes its not worth it to spend time on small little things. Instead, think BIG and go BIG!

    Extraordinary. Makes me sad that even at BHW 99% will never get what she got.

    The way to make success is to get some investors,which I'm pretty sure 99.9% of BHW wont get. Do you guys really think Google would be around still if the two co founders had not gotten that venture capitalist to help them?
