In past, the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey had a desire to become a plant drawing artist. He also wanted to be a designer. In fact, he also had the desire to become a massage therapist.
Dorsey also wanted to quit and get out of the world of technology that he was currently working on to realize his desire to become a designer.
But now, Dorsey is a billionaire. He is the CEO of Twitter and owner of Square, his mobile payments company. Dorsey has an estimated net worth of USD 12.9 billion as reported by Forbes.
Before founding Twitter, in 2006, Dorsey started several companies in Silicon Valley to become a website developer.
The first idea to develop a social media platform called Twitter has emerged in 2000 as reported by CNBC International.
In fact, several times Dorsey has had doubts about leaving the technology industry to pursue his dreams in other fields or continuing his activities in the world of technology. As time went on, he grew increasingly frustrated at the thought of these two conflicting matters.
Previously, Dorsey had left his campus, which was named New York University. He was also fired from the company he started himself. The company focuses on shipping and courier services. He also decided to move to the city of St. Louis, his childhood place.
In his childhood city, Dorsey tried to cultivate several fields of interest to him, such as being a botanical illustrator for scientific purposes and also being a massage therapist. In the end, though, Dorsey abandoned the plan and returned to San Francisco.
Launching the New Yorker, Dorsey also frequently visits the Missouri Botanical Gardens, because that’s where he learned to draw the banyan poon which has branched roots. Meanwhile, Dorsey’s interest in design is due to his admiration for the work of jeans designer Scott Morrison. For information, Scott Morrison is the founder of Paper Denim & Cloth.
In fact, just one month before his Twitter social media platform was released in March 2006, Dorsey had his idea of leaving Twitter with one of its co-founders, Noah Glass.
