Legendry businessman Jack Ma is retiring at 55 to take up social service and the world is in awe

“his tech giant Alibaba is Asia’s richest company with net worth nearing 500 billion dollars. Jack Ma’s life has been one inspiring success story”

A teacher from heart, Jack Ma was never an obvious guess to become a world beating billionaire. He started out small, from a small shared apartment and with his dynamic and flamboyant leadership took his company to the very epitome of the business world. Today, his tech giant Alibaba is Asia’s richest company with net worth nearing 500 billion dollars. Jack Ma’s life has been one inspiring success story.

However, Jack Ma is way more than his monetary success. He is at that level at the moment where whatever he says becomes a quote. He is revered in the entrepreneurship world. And when a man with that magnitude of success behind him decides to quit, it does seem surprising. But that’s how Jack Ma is. He keeps looking for opportunities of growth. His eyes are set on education and social service. And why not, when a man has achieved everything possible for himself then lending a helping hand to others is the best way forward. He has set a precedent for other successful business tycoons.

The world was not already in awe of this charismatic individual. And now his voluntary retirement in favour of philanthropy has earned him a cult status. Here’s how some of his fans took the news of his retirement.
