Brian Acton, the Software engineer no one wanted, a short story to inspire you

In the middle of 2009, he was the software engineer that no one wanted to hire.

Despite a dozen years of experience at Yahoo and Apple Computer, he got turned down by two of the internet’s most upcoming companies at the time. First Twitter, and then Facebook.

When he could not find any other company that would hire him, he teamed up with another Yahoo alum, Jan Koum, and built the application that has not only dominated cloud-based messaging, but is also used all over the world.

Yes, this person is none other than Brian Acton, who developed Whatsapp . Whatsapp was acquired by Facebook in 2014 for about $19 billion USD in cash and stock, making Acton’s net worth around $3.8 billion.

Lesson : No dream is to big for you to accomplish when you have a burning sensation for greatness, Brian Action wouldn't have achieved what he had now if he didn't push forward, like the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens..
