A trbute to the Most Shrewed Strategist - William Henry Gates of Microsoft.com

October 28, 1955 saw a new era in the world of the digital age and world of philanthropy at it's best. A person who sometimes did a lot of things outside legal and compliance issues was born and name William "Bill" Gates. Since the 80's I have personally followed the story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in America's economic history.

A chief strategist, nostalgic philosopher and a person who gets what he wants at all cost such as Bill Gates is one of the greatest idols I had since I have started as an entrepreneur in the world of business.

I salute the compassion that the Melinda and Gates Foundation had done to the betterment of the human race. As such, I have also devoted my future service when I retire someday to the very ideals started by this foundation.

A great leader knows that the only way of leaving love and legacy is using the power of succession. When we create a company that we have shed blood and sweat yet we educate, train and in the end share it with the employees who had truly helped us through the years is one of the greatest acts of compassion that every business leader should understand.

Because when we know how to give, how to share and eventually release ourselves from the very child we have created which is our business then this is the greatest gift the we ever give intangible, priceless and will be in the books of history for ages to come.

Thus, is why I salute one of the greatest compassionate strategic digital leaders of this lifetime. This is today, the future is still open and I have always said it is now up to our youth and emerging business leaders to follow the lead of the real entrepreneur within.

May God Bless a great genius of this lifetime. A salute to one of my most admired idols in this lifetime, William Henry Bill Gates.

Long live entrepreneurship, Philanthropy and Visions shall transform the dreams.......
