Don’t quit

In 2009 Brian Acton tweeted twice, well many more tweets than two that year, but, two tweets were memorable, because they remarked on his failure to get jobs at two great tech companies.

Ok confession time, I copy and pasted these images from a fellow bloggers post. Find that post here. Ok, I am so glad I got that off of my chest. On with the story. Brian and Jan Koum left their jobs and job hunts and started WhatsAPP. A social media company that allows users to exchange text like messages on their mobile phones without paying the cell phone text messaging fees.

The company is a brillant idea and (more importantly for our narrative) was just sold to Facebook for 19 billion dollars!

So I am not sure what you are doing or who has closed the door on you, you know like maybe twitter and Facebook said no to a job for you, but who knows in five years the same doors may be opened and behind them there could be a billion dollar payout!

Never give up!
