Stephen Ross: Getting fired was best motivation

Stephen Ross was fired before he decided to start his own business.

Ross’s first job in New York was with Laird, a securities brokerage firm. It didn’t last long. “They were having problems, and I was released, if you will,” Ross said. He got a new job at Bear Stearns. That didn’t work out either.
