Costliest Mistake Ever

Meet the man who blew off 60 Billion dollars.

His name is Ronald Wayne, the third founder of Apple computer. Ronald Wayne gave back his stake in the multi-billion dollar company back in its earliest days in 1976. Steve Wozniack and Steve Jobs each had 45 percent shares and Wayne had 10 percent. He was to be the “adult-in-chief” and settle any disputes between the two Steves. Wayne decided to cash out because he felt the pair were too young and inexperienced and feared that the company would go under and he’d be liable. So he cashed out two weeks later for $2,300. Apple is worth over 600 billion dollars today. I think I’d have a hard time sleeping at night.
