But now, he’s got even bigger ambitions. As AfroTech previously reported, Hart has said that he wants to be a billionaire before he turns 45 — and at the rate he’s going, he can probably pull it off.
“It’s not about the money,” he said, according to our previous report. “It’s about the title of a billionaire. What does that mean, how did you get there? What was your road to getting there?

You can have a real eye-sight of someone that did it, that can talk to you in a way that you understand and you know.”
