If you haven’t heard of the man, what are you doing?! Drastically changing the world for the good, bringing out revolutionary technologies in order to primarily contribute to the saving of climate change, Elon Musk doesn’t just focus on the contributing to saving of our planet.
Although this takes up a large chunk of his work, specialising in this field, there is a much more in depth picture to this! Let me begin from the start, Elon Reeve Musk is a South African-born American entrepreneur and businessman who founded X.com in 1999 (which later became PayPal), SpaceX in 2002 and Tesla Motors in 2003. Musk became a multimillionaire in his late 20s when he sold his start-up company, Zip2, to a division of Compaq Computers.
As CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, founder of The Boring Company, and cofounder of OpenAI, Musk seems to be everywhere all at once, pushing all kinds of incredible new technologies. He's said he won't be happy until we've escaped Earth and colonized Mars.
Between space rockets, electric cars, solar batteries, research into killer robots, and the billions he's made along the way, Musk is basically a real-life Tony Stark - which is why he served as an inspiration for "Iron Man." But it wasn't always easy for Musk. Here's how he went from getting bullied in school to small-time entrepreneur to CEO of two major companies that seem like they're straight out of science fiction - and how he almost went broke along the way.
Direct Message for more on Elon! (In my opinion the most magnificent human being alive)
+ if you haven’t read his book, then what are you doing! It breaks down every little bit of Elon’s journey to become one of the most successful individuals alive, the book is called “ELON MUSK” by Ashlee Vance!
