From Rocket Science to Electric Cars: Unpacking the Genius of Elon Musk

Most very successful entrepreneurs are crazy. Insanely positive, risk-takers, ridiculous self-belief.

From among all the billionaire entrepreneurs Musk stands out as being on another level of positive, risk tolerance, and self-belief.

In my view, that’s his key difference. He’s no smarter, no more hard-working than the rest. But he’s got that extra oomph.

The fact that he ran out of personal cash funding two insane ventures - trying to colonise Mars, and trying to beat BMW, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, VW to electric cars from a small company that had only produced a shoddy electric roadster before - says it all…
