“They tried to bury us.
They did not know
we were seeds.”
Brian Acton had a lapse in employment. Nobody wanted to hire him. He then started a company called WhatsApp and sold it to one of the companies that rejected him. The price was astounding 19 billion dollars.
On a much smaller scale, early in my career, I was rejected because I did not have enough experience in IBM PC development. I had 6 months experience, IBM PC was on the market for 1 year at that point.
I then wrote a spreadsheet program S2 for IBM PC which was used throughout IBM, including the group that rejected me.
An acceptance makes us happy, a rejection makes us stronger.
