As one of the richest people on the planet, billionaire Jeff Bezos has so far kept his desk from his early days. The Amazon retail empire was built thanks to the savings of the founder's parents. Therefore, Jeff Bezos did not dare to squander but always save money. When Amazon employees needed a desk, the business owner found a cheap solution: instead of buying the right desks, he assembled the doors into desks.
A company spokesman said Bezos's desk at the Amazon office was still a composite desk from the doors. It was an improved and more modern version of the desk he used in the 1990s. However, for Bezos, the desk symbolizes the way of saving since he started the company when he made the first desk.
