Billions in Change (A great documentary!)

Have you ever watched something and had an “aha!” moment very soon afterwards? Well that exact thing happened to me a few minutes ago.

The documentary I’ve included below is about Manoj Bhargava. He created a 5 hour energy drink that very quickly became a billion dollar product. The next question he had was “What do I do with all this extra money?” For him the answer was simple, give away 99% and help change the world using inventions.

I’ll try give you a brief synopsis of it without spoiling it for you. Manoj decided to set up a company that aims to solve problems like clean energy, clean and recycled water and even better healthcare. What really struck me was the fundamental point he seemed to revisit which goes something like this. Sometimes the solution to a complex problem is a simple one.

Now go watch it before I give away any more!
