School: Reed College
Net worth: $6.5 to 7 billion (as of 2011)
Jobs left Reed College to start Apple in his garage back in 1974. With Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Jobs revolutionized the computer, music, and mobile industries. Jobs’s life was full of up ans downs. He fought himself to climb the ladder of success. Poorly we lost this great personality in 2011.
Jobs never worked for money. He said “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful … that’s what matters to me.”
