Today’s guest is Elon Musk. A serial entrepreneur, business magnate, engineer and inventor. He was a key figure in the early days of Paypal, where he was part of a team that included Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, Jawed Karim and David Sacks; a team which is now known as the “Paypal Mafia.” These days, he’s sending rockets to Mars, reforming the automobile industry, building lightning speed trains under major cities, building a computer interface for the brain, and is trying to turn every roof completely solar. Seriously. He’s the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla; co-chairman of OpenAI; founder and CEO of Neuralink; and founder of The Boring Company.
He’s without question one of most hardcore entrepreneurs the world has ever seen—perhaps the most hardcore.
