Steve Jobs, the iconic and visionary founder of Apple
A true entrepreneurial icon, a life cut short, died on Wednesday. He was 56. RIP Steve Jobs, you will continue to be an inspiration to us all.
There are so many things to say about Jobs and his companies, most notably Apple. The one thing to add beyond technological and business insights is respect for the incredible marketing machine Jobs built. From packaging and storefront design to masterful multichannel product launches and tense excitement by tightly managed PR, Apple demonstrated best practices in many areas of marketing.
Throughout the years, he’s not only changed our lives with innovative products, but also with memorable words.
Many tweeted quotes from Jobs, such as “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.” and “Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” Both are taken from Jobs’ 2005 commencement address at Stanford where he talks about death and the lessons he learned after being diagnosed with cancer.
Please watch a real inspiring speech.
