1. There was a third founder

Apple wasn’t started by just two guys named Steve. Besides Jobs and Wozniak, the oft-forgotten third founder of Apple is Ronald Wayne, who left the fledgling company 12 days after it was founded in April 1976.

Wayne sold his 10 percent share of the company for $800, plus an additional $1,500 payout later that year. That share would be worth more than $60 billion today. In a 2011 interview with Bloomberg Television, the now-80-year-old Wayne said he had no regrets. We totally believe that.
