That net worth had grown to $10 million by the next year and more than $250 million by the age of 25, according to many estimates. But then he was out of his own company at age of 30. (Due to fights with co workers)
After being jobless he though what he would like to do in life, he realised that even though he had failed but still he loved what he did. He decided to start new companies, selling all shares of Apple and keeping just one
He did not quit. He was a passionate person and he kept on going. He realized that even though he failed he still loved what he did. He started 2 new companies. One was called Next and developed its own computers, while the other one Pixar made animations and brought animated movies to life.
