— Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs once said that being fired from Apple was the best thing that ever happened to him. After his firing from Apple in 1985, Steve Jobs tried several strategies to stay involved with Apple. When this failed, he entered one of the most creative periods of his life, which led him to develop NeXT computers. When NeXT took off, Jobs was able to reemerge as one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, poising him for a successful return to Apple Computers down the road.
