TikTok CEO resigns aged just 38 with $44 billion fortune

The CEO of TikTok, one of the 30 most wealthy people in the world, has resigned so he can ‘read more books and daydream.’

Wish is exactly what we’d do if we had $44 billion in the bank. Albeit with extra eating, film watching and traveling also included as part of the deal.

TikTok was the world’s most valuable start-up company when it launched in 2012. And let’s be honest: its daft videos kinda kept us sane during the last year.

At 38, he’s one of the youngest tech billionaires to quit his high-profile position while his company still keeps getting bigger.

The TikTok CEO a very long and detailed letter to his employees outlining his decision.

“The truth is, I lack some of the skills that make an ideal manager. Similarly, I’m not very social, preferring solitary activities like being online, reading, listening to music, and daydreaming about what may be possible.”

Well congratulations Zhang Yiming. May you enjoy your time off and happy daydreaming!
