Franklin took part in The Stamp Act, assembled the first American lending library, helped Draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S constitution, and was part of many more contributions. Benjamin Franklin was a very intelligent man who did not have an ordinary mind like most men in the eighteenth century did. “His inquiring mind was challenged most by the mechanics of the word’s seemingly ordinary phenomena, and he was convinced that his mind’s rational powers could solve riddles that had puzzled humankind for centuries” (Franklin 441).
Benjamin Franklin is known by many for his work with modern day electrical technologies. He worked with lightbulbs, conductors, batteries, and invented many other objects we still use to this day.

What Steve Jobs Taught Me: 11 Lessons About Life and Business Steve Jobs had a complicated relationship with his business and with his partners--both intimate and professional. He was at the same time both innovator and thief, inventing new ways of doing things and sometimes taking credit for other people’s handiwork (even if only by not acknowledging the actual creator). A perfectionist and a shrewd business man in every sense of the word, Steve Jobs was the ultimate renaissance man. As tempting as it is to attempt to emulate every part of such an influential person’s life, most of us did not come from where Jobs came from nor do we have to walk the same path he walked to be successful.
