Working for Microsoft cost Gary Tan 200 million dollars. Gary is a venture capitalist and back in 2004 he was offered an opportunity to start a company with Peter Theil.
Theil, entrepreneur, capitalist, and now billionaire, offered Gary a check for a years salary to quit Microsoft and come work with him. Gary said no.
I loved this story, especially if you’re in the middle of making hard decisions on where to work and where to take your career.
