So recently I have continued to hear about how that Facebook IPO has been losing value since it was introduced and apparently as a result of the shares being worth less now the founder is no longer on a particular top richest people list. There was then this whole debate about how this may impact him and if he will return on the list once everything settles down.
I was just thinking too where if you have that much money where finances are definitely not an issue and you can pretty much get anything you want why would anyone be so caught up in being on some list? If anything I would say those types of things are probably more wanted in the beginning if people are starting up as it is essentially free advertising and usually at those times people want all the attention they could get. That would explain why so many start up type of companies are even willing to pay for things like getting interviews or awards.
