Perhaps you’ve followed Elon Musk’s top successes and failures. If not, keep reading to learn more about who Musk is, what his businesses are all about, and how he’ll succeed in the great state of Texas according to BBC, Observer, and the SF Chronicle.
27. Second-Richest Person in the World
To many, Elon Musk is the classic eccentric billionaire. He insists on doing things his way, even when it doesn’t make sense to the people around him. His way included starting an internet company that allows people to transfer money and buy things online without revealing personal information. It was PayPal, one of his first ventures.
But the real success of Musk is his Tesla car company, which makes fully electric vehicles that can be recharged with solar power. With the collapse of the fossil-fuel industry accelerated by the global pandemic, Tesla has grown many times over in the past few months. Because of this growth, Musk is now the second-richest man globally only behind Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
