My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky. I found what I loved to do early in life.

Woz and I started Apple in my parents' garage when I was twenty.

We worked hard and in ten years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4,000 employees.

We'd just released our finest creation the Macintosh, a year earlier, and I'd just turned thirty, and then I got fired.

How can you get fired from a company you started?

Well, as Apple grew, we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me.

And for the first year or so, things went well.

But then our visions of the future began to diverge, and eventually we had a falling out.

When we did, our board of directors sided with him.

And so at thirty, I was out, and very publicly out.

What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn't know what to do for a few months.

I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down, that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me.

I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly.

I was a very public failure and I even thought about running away from the Valley.

But something slowly began to dawn on me. I still loved what I did.

The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit.

I'd been rejected but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.
