There is a saying,

" Success is the best Revenge "


Although it was not the revenge, specifically, but the essence that one should never be hopeless and should never quit if S/he is determined, honest , enthusiastic and resolute in attaining the predetermined goals or objectives....


Failure is the persuasion, inducement and stimulation for the people who are persistent , purposeful, steadfast and unfaltering in achieving their aim and fulfilling their commitment.


And yes, Acton Brian, is one of the most successful brains in the present world.

"Despite a Dozens years of experience at Apple and Yahoo. He got turned down by the two internet's biggest companies of that time." Maybe they were afraid he knew too much. And such people can easily understand your business formula and break away; so you turn such down to protect yourself. Blame them? I don't know.

He is Mr. 'Achuks'. Only the Igbo would understand the name I have given Bryan. It means 'Achukonye'; meaning, you can chase someone into wellbeing if you chase them away too much.

We have such brains in Nigeria, just that many are using their gifts to defraud others for peanuts.
