I wanted to be like Elon Musk, yes I am not joking I was quite serious. I was dumbed enough to think that I could be like Elon Musk. But, I missed a lot of things in this “To be like someone” struggle porn.
There are thousands of billionaires in this world but if you ask any educated guy about her favorite Billionaire, more than 50% will name Elon Musk. There are a lot of things here that play its part but we come to that thing later.
Some things you need to know about Elon Musk:
- Elon Musk read books day and night when he was a child. His favourite book among other is “Hitchhiker’s guide to the universe”
- Elon Musk started his Entrepreneurial career with a startup called “ZIP2” in 1995 which he later sold and started another company called X.com which later became PayPal.
- When PayPal was sold to Ebay, Musk got $200 Million. He invested $100 Million each in his two new companies like Tesla and SpaceX.
- He started using Twitter in 2010.
If you look into the pattern, Elon Musk was just a common billionaire until 2 or 3 years ago. But, you have to start somewhere and it takes Elon Musk over 25 years to be as famous as he is today.
