LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- After nearly two decades a candid lost interview with the late Steve Jobs has finally been released.

The DVD titled "The Lost Interview" features a side of Jobs' that may just surprise you. Shot a few years before Jobs went back to Apple and saved the company from bankruptcy, the interview gives us an inside look at the early years of Jobs' career and what it took to make his visions come true.

It's hard to imagine that Apple almost never was, but a conflict of interest between the young co-founder and the seasoned C.E.O. John Sculley would eventually lead the board to terminating Jobs' position.

"Very Painful. I'm not even sure I want to talk about it. What can I say? I hired the wrong guy. (Scully) He destroyed everything I spent 10 years working for. Starting with me, but that wasn't even the saddest part. I would've gladly left Apple, if Apple would've turned out like I had wanted it to" said Jobs.

The over an hour and a half interview features Jobs talking about his life as a dreamer and why his paychecks never mattered.

"I was worth over a million when I was 23. Over 10 million dollars when I was 24, and over 100 million dollars when I was 25. It was never that important, because I never did it for the money.  I think money is a wonderful thing because it enables you to do things" said Jobs "but, especially at that point in my life it was not the most important thing. The most important thing was the product, the people, what we were enabling people to do with the products we were making."

The young visionary's number one goal was to improve the lives of everyone and with a passion for products that were simple and easy to use Jobs became one of the world's most influential men.
