Zuckerberg: You're fired from Facebook! Employee copes with multi-million dollar loss and then moves on

On Monday, Facebook employees will finally have the chance to turn $5 billion in shares into cold, hard cash. It's a long awaited payday that our I.D.E.A. guest tonight will never see.

Noah Kagan had a high-paying job, and left it to work at Facebook. He was the 30th employee to join the social media company. So his take of the pie today would have been $100 million dollars. That is, if he hadn't been fired by Mark Zuckerberg.

CNN's Erin Burnett asked him about his latest idea as well as what motivated him to go to Facebook in the first place.
