This Store Called Alibaba.com Sells Everything and Made Its Founder Billions!

The other day I was browsing through Alibaba and i noticed they sell something that you will never get in any ordinary store. Guess what...

You can get a bomb disposal suit there!

I wonder if Amazon.com is as efficient as this e-store that Jack Ma has started. If you haven't heard of Jack Ma, you have probably not read the newspapers this few weeks. This guy from China was an English teacher turned billionaire!

Long ago, he had the foresight to see into the future. He saw that businesses in China need a medium to connect to other businesses. So a B2B platform was created. This man not only had China in mind. He wanted to connect Chinese factories with the whole world!

As you know, China is the world's factory. Today, most of what you use will probably be made in China. His idea proved to be so useful that it became an instant hit with businesses all around the world! Alibaba has even racked up more sales than Amazon itself.

Jack Ma has recently listed his company on the US stock exchange. In just one day, he became the richest man in China. His net worth is around $20 Billion according to Forbes.

Now, that's what I call a rags to riches story!
