But there are also non-technical luminaries such as Jack Ma (the English teacher who founded Alibaba, the world’s largest retailer) and Steve Jobs (the creative genius behind Apple) who’ve set equally historic milestones in business.There are many ways to compensate for the lack of technical skills.
