Ten years ago, Brian Acton was looking for a job.

His job at Yahoo had come to an end after 11 years. He was not sure what to do next, trying to find a new direction in life, going through sleepless nights and anxiety-filled days.

He was meeting VCs and doing networking.

He applied for a job at Twitter. Twitter said no.

Facebook said no as well.

So he and Jan Koum, a colleague from Yahoo, set out to do their own thing, became known as Whatsapp.

And then, they sold that thing to Facebook for 19 billion dollars.

Life is crazy. Startups are crazy too.
