I’m a Technology CEO and Experienced Entrepreneur. I love helping people use technology to grow their business.

  • Facebook reported its first quarter earnings this week
  • The company brought in just over $8 billion in revenue, a jump of 49 percent since the first quarter of 2016
  • That gave it a net profit of just over $3 billion, up a whopping 76 percent over the same period last year
  • Facebook now has 1.94 billion monthly active users
  • Currently, the world population is estimated at 7.5 billion
  • I love the quote from CEO Mark Zuckerberg to investors, “We had a good start to 2017,” so modest 🙂
  • Facebook now has 18,770 employees, a 38 percent rise from this time last year.
