A business coaching perspective of WhatsApp acquisition by FacebookJust 5 years after it was founded by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, WhatsApp goes to the hands of Facebook for a record braking 19 Billion Dollars! And, I know billions are exciting, Mark Zuckerberg’s celeb-meter is off the roof, but I want you to lean back for a moment, wear your business coaching goggles, and see the transaction from another angle.

  1. WhatsApp has just 55 employees, 32 engineers but no marketing or PR dudes or bettys. ACTION: Tear off all your Peter Drucker books now!
  2. From 0 to 19.000.000.000 in 5 years. ACTION: Tear off your “I want to make $1000 in sales by 31/12/2014” affirmation card!
  3. But the key takeaway from this new Digital Age story is this: While the Winklevoss brothers focused on lawsuits and got a $300m settlement…

Mark and Jan are focusing on having fun doing what they love most, connecting the world and raked a few billion in the process too!

ACTION: Commit to the manifestation of your dream, your passion, unconditionally!

This is why they’re fooqin awesome and this is why they create fooqin businesses!
