I am a big fan of Robert Kiyosaki (a multimillionaire) who advice people to invest in property in order to secure your retirement. What Robert Kiyosaki always tell is 4 green houses, one red hotel (monopoly game). In order to get rich, we need to invest in real estate as asset, hold it and collect rental for long term income. That's 10 years ago.
In today's world, real estate is not the only the asset that we can build in order to get rich. We can build even bigger asset - PLATFORMS!
In the world, we have Google who has built a lot of platforms for both users and merchants to use in order to make our lives easier. They have search engine, Google+, gmail, etc. We also have Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin as social media platform in connect people around the world.
In Malaysia, we have Lelong.com, Mudah.my, eBay.com.my as platforms for buyers and sellers to do business.
Each of them charge merchant a very small amount but when the quantiy is huge, they make money. This is especially true for advertising website like Google Adwords and auction website like eBay.com.
So, let say if you want to make money in digital world, make sure you go building a platform rather a single company eCommerce website.
