I am in agreement with the view expressed in your tribute to Steve Jobs that many CEOs of the largest corporations are overpaid for what they do ("Steve Jobs, old-fashioned visionary," Oct. 9). They are not innovators and they are not personal risk takers. Steve Jobs was not a typical CEO because he was an entrepreneur and the founder of his company despite the fact that he was "fired" and had a hiatus from the company for 12 years.
You note that "while he became a rich man, he did not appear to be motivated by money. … What drove him was his work." You imply that may be a rare quality. I submit, however, that a great many people in business and in professions are driven by a passion for their work, and money comes along the way.
