Steve Jobs’ net worth is $10.2 billion dollars after becoming a successful man and creating lots of innovative technology (“Steve Jobs…”). In his earlier life, he would sell Coke bottles to get 5 cents in order to pay for his food every week and he usually made enough money to eat out one night a week (Jobs). He began working at Apple where he introduced to people the first computer, smartphone, and music-downloading program. Jobs eventually became the co-owner of Pixar Studios where Toy Story was the first film produced in 1995 (The Personal). Steve Jobs had a very weak background where he later improved the technology industry incredibly.

This calligraphy class was considered the best in the country. In fact, taking this class helped him with the first Mac computer that Apple produced (Steve Jobs). College was not tough at all for Jobs, but the money his adoptive parents’ had spent was now all gone and he had to work for anything else he wanted.
As a kid, no one would ever imagine being diagnosed with some kind of disease that could possibly cause him or her to die, but unfortunately, Steve Jobs was. In 2003, Jobs was 48 when he was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor, which was very rare, but operable. Later in 2004, after Jobs had put off surgery several times, he finally underwent surgery to remove the pancreatic tumor. However, Steve Jobs died after suffering a long battle with pancreatic cancer in 2011. While Jobs was alive, he never really liked sharing information about his health (Steve Jobs). Even though the tumor Jobs had was operable, he knew his life was coming to a near end and he should live with no regrets.
Steve Jobs had many accomplishments in his life that no one else could have done better than he. Jobs started the company Apple Computers in 1976 with Steve Wozniak. Jobs sold his Volkswagen bus and not only, Wozniak sold his scientific calculator to fund money for their entrepreneurial venture (Steve Jobs). The invention of Jobs and Wozniak changed the way people imagined a computer looking like and what it could do for them (The Personal). They never thought they would be able to communicate with other people thorough a computer. Former PepsiCo executive John Sculley, was hired by Jobs to run the business operations of Apple (Quezzaire). Jobs was a very generous man, who was not going to take credit for the accomplishments that his team members had helped him with.
Inventing pieces of technology were big steps that impacted Jobs’ life a lot. Jobs started a new computer programming company in 1989 to hopefully compete with Apple. Given that, the company Apple Computers went public in 1980, allowing the founders to become multi-millionaires. Apple is one of the best-known and most popular brands of electronic devices in the world. The first computer produced by Apple I cost $666.66 (Steve Jobs). In 1977, Apple II was introduced which included color graphics (The Personal). All of these inventions were just the beginning of something so big, but in Jobs eyes he never saw it coming.
Jobs talked about three different stories in the speech he gave in 2005 at Stanford University. His first story was about connecting the dots when he was younger. One quote Jobs lived by was, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards.” By this, he is saying people need to live in the future, not in the past. Jobs’ second story was about love and loss. He felt lucky that he had found what he loved doing, however he was then fired at age 30, becoming devastated after losing everything he had always wanted (Jobs). Growing up, Jobs knew...
