It is every entrepreneur’s dream always to be as innovative and creative as possible and come up with new ideas that haven’t been discovered yet, but will contribute towards the well being of everyday human life. Thus, comes Elon Musk, an accomplished entrepreneur who believes he is self-driven and highly motivated to accomplish tasks, ideas, and routines from inspiring leaders. Elon explains that he even prioritizes his top three tasks every morning.
Elon Musk has identified some of humanity’s most pressing needs and will go down in the history books as the man who took steps towards attempting to save our already dying planet.
Musk has continued to challenge every other scientist’s and person’s perception of things and ideas which, otherwise, seemed to be “impossible” and made them possible and tangible.
Musk likes to get things done and done right for that matter. At only 17, he created a list of some of the things he believed would greatly impact human lives forever. The list entailed:
- The internet,
- Space exploration,
- Sustainable energy,
- Reprogramming human genetics,
- Artificial intelligence.
He is the founder of PayPal, which was the first ever online platform for all digital money transfers. He has an early interest in the internet.
Several years later, Musk would delve into space exploration, space industries, and automobiles. He founded three other companies; the Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and SolarCity which have all become superstars in their fields. All of these companies were built for one sole purpose, and that was how they could create the needed change for humanity.
- Space exploration
In 2002, Musk decided to launch a privately-funded venture which was commonly known as SpaceX and with all the success Musk has claimed in his space endeavors; you would be astonished at how he managed to do all these without any formal knowledge in rocketry training.
You can say Musk qualified himself using his gut instincts. So far, SpaceX has hit so many historic milestones and managed to come out victorious I the past 15 years since Musk founded the corporation. In December 2010, the company became the first privately owned corporation to complete, send and return a spacecraft to and from a low-earth orbit. Then only two years after that, the Dragon spacecraft flew to the ISS exchanged cargo for NASA and returned to earth safely.
- Space tourism
SpaceX has promised to have an unmanned tourist launch to the moon by late 2018 with an estimated $70 million price tag per seat.
- Tesla Motors
This company, also founded by Elon Musk, also boasts its design for efficient electric cars. In 2003, the company launched in the Silicon Valley with one specific mission; to speed up the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
In 2012, Tesla Motors launched the Model S which was the world’s first electric sedan and was built to be 100% electric. Thanks to Musk, we now have cars that can run on batteries and the solar power energy which has greatly reduced the reliance on fossil fuels.
This corporation is set to speed up the process of identifying the use of renewable energy. It was founded by Musk in 2006 and is also set to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels to run our daily machines.
