He's Now Officially a Millionaire

From -- You may remember my post from Friday, December 30, 2005 about Alex Tew, the college student who had an idea for a website that had already generated over $900,000 worth of advertising at the time of my post. Well, according to this article on today, he has now surpassed the 1 million dollar mark already!

In less than five months, he went from broke to a millionaire!

From the article: "At exactly 1:42:28 p.m. EST today, Tew can post a "sold out" sign on the Million Dollar Homepage. (You can see it at The spiky-haired Brit put the last thousand pixels up for auction on eBay 10 days ago with a $1 starting bid for the lot. With 24 hours to go, yesterday's bidding reached $152,300, putting him over the million-dollar mark."

"The phenomenon he created has been hailed by some as a genre-changing concept in online marketing -- otherwise an advertising badlands of spam, banner ads and pop-ups. Others say it's a brilliant, one-time marketing aberration that will never be replicated."

Either way, it was a brilliant idea! As the article says, "Why didn't I think of that?" The good news is...there are a million other million dollar ideas out there. Get out and find yours!

Make it a great day!
