To say that the world has lost one it’s most inspirational and innovative minds in the history of mankind would be an understatement. I remember when Apple introduced the iMac 1998, it was so different from anything else on the market in terms of a PC. Then, in 2001 the iPod was released and revolutionize how we listen to music. It started the tech wave that made owning anything by Apple a lifestyle decision. Those who had the iPod were cool and it evoked an image of being up with the times. Year after year Steve Jobs led Apple to create industry leading innovations. Just think about the PC itself or the mouse, both were creations of Jobs.
When I decided to start my own company I was inspired by the words of Steve Jobs…
“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
– Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Address (2005)
I feel honored to have lived in the era of Steve Jobs and I will continue to pursue my dreams as he has. You will be sincerely missed. Rest in Peace.
