I interviewed Ashlee Vance about his book, "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future."
He has spent over 40 hours talking with Elon and interviewed close to 300 people for his book.
Elon is someone that personifies what people want in their own lives. He is willing to give up everything he has for something he believes in.
75% of people at one point in their lives will dream of starting something. The percentage of people that actually try is lower than that, and the amount of people that succeed is even lower.
Elon is the first person to run three companies that are worth over a billion dollars. He is also tied for the 100th richest man in the world.
From a rough upbringing in South Africa to becoming arguably one of the greatest business minds of our generation, his story resonates with anyone trying to become a successful entrepreneur.
