Elon Musk is the extremely successful founder of three companies: the reusable rocket firm, SpaceX, Zip2, which helped newspapers design community-based websites in the 90s, and which bought the online payment system Paypal and sold it for 1.5 billion in 2002. Elon Musk inspires anyone trying to change the world as an entrepreneur.Much has been made of late of the idea that management, in and of itself, cannot be taught. There is an emerging ideology that "domain knowledge" is more important than the nonspecified ability to manage people or organizations. Elon Musk proves how faulty that idea is. He is a visionary who wants to change the world on specific fronts and he is using all of his mental and financial resources to do it.

[...] ("Rocket Fails On Maiden" C12) Born in South Africa on June 28th in 1971 ("Rocket Fails On Maiden" C12), the 37 year-old entrepreneur is best known for business and his current net worth is estimated to be over 328 million dollars but from that base of success, and using those funds, he has gone on to Tesla, space, movies and deep commitments to philanthropy, especially the idea that space exploration has great potential good for all of humankind. Elon Musk, more than almost any individual under the age of forty, typifies what well- rounded entrepreneurial success will look like in the 21st century because the job market has mutated and successful careers are now shaped by the ability to develop core skills that a person can take with them from opportunity to opportunity.
