When every young person today is rushing to open startups and dropping jobs to make careers, Tom Anderson, founder of My Space is following a different route. 

Known as the default friend on MySpace, Tom sold his company to Rupert Murdoch for $580 million in 2005. You might be expecting a grumpy obese guy deteriorating in front of television. But Tom is living a fairytale.

Here's Tom.

At the age of 44, he spends his time traveling all over the world, meeting beautiful women and pursuing photography. And I must admit, he is pretty good at it. Check out his Instagram for more amazing pictures by an ex-entrepreneur (didn't know they existed).

In his interview with ABC he said,

"The less the camera is able to capture what you're seeing in a scene, the more editing it needs. I'm not necessarily trying to represent nature exactly. I'm trying to make something beautiful like a painter would."

He also appreciates how people are discovering their creative side,

"I think people are feeling more artistic and creative with something like Instagram that makes editing easy. That's a good thing for sure, I meet so many people that are interested in trying photography and I think any boost to one's creative life is a boon."
