Jobs and Wozniak made very different choices and had very different goals. They both did largely what they wanted to do and that demonstrates a key difference between the two.

Wozniak was a builder. He invents and does very interesting stuff. That is incredibly valuable, but the problem with being an inventor as it relates to getting rich is many inventors rely on businessmen to market their inventions at a profit.

Jobs was more of the entrepreneur who would take ideas and inventions, add something to make them marketable, and would go out and sell them to the market.
