Celebrities Who Got Fired Before They Made it Big
19- Steve Jobs
Founder of Apple, Steve Jobs was forced out of his own company merely a year after the Macintosh’s disappointing release. Due to the mix of lousy computer sales and a very public falling out with chief executive John Sculley, Jobs soon found himself jobless in Silicon Valley. Talk about rotten luck!
Instead of ditching the tech world altogether (which honestly would have been justified after being fired from your own company), Jobs decided to co-found another computer company, NeXT, as well as set Pixar Animation Studios into motion. What was the “devastating” loss of the “focus of [his] entire adult life,” as Jobs described at a 2005 Stanford commencement speech, became the critical motivator to escape a crippling midlife crisis? Jobs eventually re-acquired the position as Apple CEO and launched the iPhone, iPod, and IPad, revolutionizing the world as we know it.
