The Real Reason Why Apple Fired Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs, co-founder and eventual CEO of Apple, is something of an entrepreneurial legend. Known for taking the tech giant from basement start-up to one of the most important, influential, and profitable companies in the world ? his career and life journey, however, were anything but plain sailing.
A successful millionaire by age 22, Jobs was famous for sweating the small stuff and built quite the reputation for being difficult to work with, which is so often the case with visionaries who are way ahead of their time.
His uncompromising work ethic, millenarian management approach, and 'pirate' side-projects eventually led to him being fired from his very own company ? a turn of events that shaped him as a creator and led to him returning to Apple to make it the company that it is today.
