The Forbes 400 Billionaire list came out on October 10, 2011. Bob Parsons, the founder and CEO of GoDaddy, was on this list. According to Forbes he is a reluctant billionaire. While it is common to see those in the online space such as venture capitalists, it is also nice to see online entrepreneurs such as Sean Parker on the cover, Reid Hoffman, Bob Parsons and others). Bob is interesting as his company has been around for much longer than most online companies. The company was originally founded in 1997 under another name and renamed GoDaddy in 1999. He made the list for the first time this year after the deal to sell GoDaddy to KKR, Silver Lake and Technology Crossover Ventures.
It is always interesting to read books and follow interviews of successful people to hear their advice. Bob has a site BobParsons.me where he regularly posts videos of business tips and has his list of Bob’s 16 rules. A prior post discusses more about the tips from Bob. I recommend you take a look at that site, he is well over 40 videos and between the videos and his tips I find it very useful.
