A very few people can make a lot of shenanigans in school and become millionaire because of that. Well, this british guy, Jack Cator, is one of those few persons. His fortune comes from one of those undisciplined moments of his early life.

When he was 16 years old, in 2005, Jack had a huge problem that would lead him to think a new way of business: He was not allowed, in school's computers, to surf on the internet, to play games and to use music streaming services. This was beacuse his school had blocked some websites with a software. Something -in small scale- like the censorship we see in countries like Iran and China.

So, with his amazing code knowledge and his theoretical references, he found out how to hack the system and get into those banned websites without being busted. "I thought I'd be funny to hack the school filters", said Jack to the BBC.

The method he used was some kind of "Identity substitution". He used a site that allowed him to "look like" an authorized profile in the system and dodge the filters. He made this possible by connecting to a remote server offshore that let him surf in an anonymous and private way. These sites give to the user something called: VPN. Virtual, Private, Network.

However, even when he managed to pass through the school's filters, he wasn't happy about the quality of the VPN servies, so he decided to create his own one.

Believe or not, it took only 1 day to him to finish his new VPN, is was going to be called Hide My Ass, a very funny name to a very funny guy who used his amazing smartness to provide one of the best services in the world in that area. HMA offers 2 types of services with 2 different ways of making money. The first is the free service, in this case Jack and HMA make money with the affiliate marketing. They win a little fee por every sale that is made thanks to the VPN service he manages.

The second business model is the Premium Service, that bills a small amount of money annually for a better service and some advantages that free clients don't have. For example, not having to share sale profits. The main office is located in SoHo, London and has more than 50 employees.

Right now, HMA is worth 60 USD Million and was sold for the same amount to AVG (Anti virus company). Guess who is the CEO? Yes, is jack Cator. He is also a great business man, who managed to remain in a high power position in his company, while receiving a huge amount of cash.

Cheers for you, Jack.
