The childhood of Abu Qader
As has been said before, sometimes to get a big success we have to love first what we do.Simply put, when we love what we do then we can more easily continue to do so even though there are problems of any size.

From there it occurred to move citizenship to the land of Uncle Sam United States.Abu said that, the process of moving to America is not an easy thing.However, he believes that in America there are still enough people who can give good to others.
And it turns out that it is true.Although it does not have a similar cultural background, but Abu still can take many lessons when starting to live in America.
Then how the process of Abu to be able to develop applications that are able to attract attention #Google?It begins when he sits in high school.At that time, he invented the term machine learning, which was of great interest to him.
Once traced further, he finally knew what is meant by machine learning technology where we can teach computers to analyze the special signs that later the computer can give predictions of the signs that have been given.
Once seen, Abu fell in love immediately and decided to explore the technology.Bak tattooed, at that time he got a school assignment to develop the application of technology that could benefit the community.
When many of his friends develop simple applications, he is challenged to develop applications with the function to detect breast cancer.This is certainly not a common technology made by schoolchildren at its level.
This is evident from the response of the teacher who actually asked Abu to change the concept of the application.The teacher thinks that the concept of the application offered ash is too difficult and complicated.
But did he stop?Certainly not.Out of love, he continues to do the project even though it is not directly applicable to schoolwork.He learned how to use machine learning technology through various online tutorials and videos uploaded on the YouTube platform.
One of the technologies studied is, technology engine engine made by Google called Tensorflow.This application is not an easy application, therefore it takes a long time for Abu to learn and start to make a base pemograman for breast cancer detection application project homemade.

From there, the application of breast cancer detection made by Abu managed to attract some attention to deliver himself to be one of the participants of Google I / O developer conference.Even more proud, the invitation received by Abu was sent directly by Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
This proves that the application of breast cancer detection made by Abu, is not a regular application.Google sees potential applications.
For information, at this time Google is also developing an application that has a function similar to the application made by Abu Qader.However, this can be an inspiration to all of us, especially the young people who have an interest in the field of technology, especially programming.

My name is Aaron Blenda.I worked in a multinational private company.At that time could say I’ve been in a position comfortable in working with 3x UMR month salary.My working time is only five days a week, get the facility from the office, and holds positions passable at a young age.This situation may be the dream of most employees out there.
But no doubt in my mind because I really wanted to feel time freedom, spending time with my family and did not get it when bears profession as an office job.I was born in the family was not well off and can not afford college, and the lack of that makes me continue to hone the ability to keep growing.
While the status of employees, any business opportunities that arise I will not release.Ranging from insurance, MLM business, until I went through the culinary business.And I succeed loss to $ 50 million when it was at age 23 that led to my debts.
Learning How To Make Money From Internet
One day I figure out how I can earn money with minimal capital, I metRico Huangon his Facebook group.I think, this crazy new 20-year-old at the time but already has dozens of employees and thousands of resellers (sales team).
At first I wondered whether it was true.I try to go to the Facebook group and see a lot of science online business is very relevant to me.Curious how Rico do it, I began to ‘stalking’ personal Facebook, the materials are distributed free in the Facebook group.
It only took three days since my online store at that time Instagram ‘grand opening’, I got my first sales.Of course, the momentum is very important because it opens my mind to be an online business it is a REAL business and can be a source of income for me.
Until the end I chose the plunge in full-time online business to quit my job with a salary of Rp 10.5 million per month.At that time I was 23 years old.Salary USD 10 millions working from 7 am to 4 pm, 5 days a week, who would not?Moreover, just graduated from S3 (primary and junior-high school).
Not a few friends and even family that does not directly tell me ‘stupid’.But for me, ignoring the odds and passion for the sake of high salaries and working conditions that do not make happy, it’s much more stupid.
Capitalize rupiah-rupiah collected from the market a product that I took from the internet, I finally invested in a marketing channel that was HOT today, namely Facebook Advertising.
When Business Not Running as you wish
If business flawlessly, it’s not a business name.I spent 30 million first success in less than one month’s trial and error with the state of Return on Investment (RoI) minus, hehehe.
But fortunately, I run a job that became my passion.Become like the sky fell though, would not be able to eat though, the job remains my lakonin.
This is serious.I’ve only eaten indomie for 3 days in a row due to lack of funds for the wholesale business.
Imagine if I had no passion in this field from the beginning.Let alone 30 million, runs 3 million is just not necessarily my lanjutin.Understandably human instinct that does not want to lose hehehe.
I am grateful to the cost of the investment was spent was a sweet fruit.
I get the skill and experience is very valuable because afterwards to get USD 100 million first I only took less than three months simply by selling produk2 in Dropshipaja.com(got Rico).
Until one day, Rico invited me to be a partner because of my ability to run Facebook Advertising.We run a business together and work together.
Business That Never I imagine Previous
Really, I never imagined it would be this far.What if I do not choose to leave my old job to pursue my passion and dream of that time?

Think about what activities make us not being bored to do and how these activities can generate income for us.
Common Diseases of the business beginners are they happy bandwagon when they have no passion in that field.Eventually foundered in the middle of the road.Not a few were sentenced themselves are not ‘destined’ to be a businessman.
2. Spend Time and Keep Professionalism
If we are still an employee, then spend some time in a relaxing time after work to learn and pioneering our business.If our time did not allow us to do that, we can find a business partner with the revenue sharing system.For technical smelly things can we outsource.There are many ways to go to Rome.Remember, keeping your professionalism us, do not steal our work time to build your business!
I believe the law of sowing-reaping applies.we do not want is certainly right when we got employees later, our employees steal time to work on their own business?
3. Create Planning Mature
We become what in the next 5 years depending on what the plan and our goal today.Like a sail, if no goal will only follow the direction of the wind and was lost at sea.
Create a simple plan to start our business, what we want to accomplish in 6 months 1 year and 3 years.Do not complicated-complicated, will be improved after the business while walking.
4. Action, Action, and Action
It’s useless if we already know what our passion, is already committed to building our own business, planning to have a very mature but no action.
there is a saying, the journey of 1000 miles begins with one step first.
The first step is very important!
5. Fuel Ship
I met many people who are already successful business begins of them resigned from their jobs.The term cruisers.
Because sometimes have a ‘second option’ after the failure is not something good.
Our brains will continue at PUSH to consider how the business can grow because there is no more ‘ship’ (read: job with a steady income) could we were riding.We will also be more focus on business.
But do not burn the ship, if we do not know yet exhausted cruisers like doing!
Similarly, from my 5 simple tips for those who want to start a business.To get a more decent income from online’ve not impossible in the current era, if we know how.
