Student Launches the Most Wanted Website with a $1,333,000 Raising Idea

A 21-year-old Latvian student launched an extraordinary website and is hoping to achieve financial freedom and stability by selling decoration blocks on his ‘The Most Wanted Website’ in a form of ad spaces. He hopes to become a millionaire in the process and make a documentary series about how his life changed and what he spent his money on.

Matiss Bartulis (Matthew in English) set up themostwantedwebsite.com in order to achieve his goal of $1,333,000 and 40 cents after he made a list for a normal life where he calculated all the expenses for the next 79 years till his 100th birthday and decided to go for it. He has published his list on the website.

He accented that his life expenses are calculated for a truly normal average life without exaggerations and excessive luxury. “For instance – money for bills, a haircut every three months, presents to relatives, new shoes every two years or ordering pizza home once a month” he added.

Despite the fact that the website has been online only for two weeks, Matiss has already made $1080, although he admits that one of the first ad spaces was sold to his godfather who owns an international furniture company.

“I knew Matiss would badger me about it, but if it attracts people’s attention, then it’s worth having my advertisement and imprints on there,” Mr. Dainis, 39, commented.

Matiss says that people can use ad spaces they purchase to display their image or logo, headline, advertisement and have a link to their own website. “A minimized version of the image will appear on the decoration block as a design element of my website,” he explains,”this is a chance to design the Internet Monument – a virtual significant place that will never change once finished.”

BT Tradespace has revealed the growing trends among small and medium businesses at the start of 2009

BT Tradespace, the business social networking site, has identified the trends of small and medium enterprises’ (SME), with longer working hours and a more environmentally sound approach at the forefront of many businesses at the start of the New Year.

It was revealed that half the owners of small businesses in the UK are working more than 60 hours a week, according to a poll conducted by BT Tradespace. Almost one in ten people (8%) are putting in 100 hours a week or over – the equivalent of 14 hours of work a day.

The survey found the most common weekly work time was 50-60 hours a week, with 21% of people working this amount.

Mick Hegarty, head of BT Tradespace, said: “Those running small and medium sized enterprises are working hard to compete and that shows the passion, drive and resiliance they have.

“However, smaller companies can achieve a better work-life balance by embracing new technology, enabling them to do things quicker, more efficiently and more flexibly.

“Their size makes them perfect candidates to adapt, innovate and thrive.”

The poll from BT Tradespace also revealed that a quarter of SMEs are helping the environment by clamping down on commuting to work. Businesses are also implementing more home or flexible workiing schemes, or using more business technology such as video or telephone conferencing instead of asking employees to travel to meetings. They are also encouraging staff to leave their cars at home.

Recycling is the most popular green initiative, carried out by 25% of small businesses. 17% are reducing energy use, cutting their gas and electricty bills at a time of rising prices.

Mick Hegarty said: “Companies can help the environment in many ways and the size of SMEs allows them to be more flexible in adopting new work patterns.

“Key decision makers are realising that modern technology, like broadband, cuts the need to travel to work every day of the week because people can work from home.

“The vast majority of SMEs are environmentally aware and are trying to do something in the fight against global warming.”

The survey for the business social networking site found only 2% of the UK’s SMEs are doing nothing at all to help the environment.
