Ready to feel like an underachiever? Ok, here goes. At age 12, Elon Musk sold video game computer code that he created for approximately $500. After earning a bachelor’s degree in both physics and economics, he moved to California with his brother and using $2,000 they borrowed from their father, started Zip2, a web software company. Four years later, in 1999, Compaq acquired the company for $307 million. Musk was 28.
Following this, Musk would go on to start nearly a dozen other innovative and ground-breaking companies, including PayPal and Tesla. Moreover, he’s emerged as one of the country’s most powerful and influential voices on matters of business, science, and the environment. One of his more aspirational goals is to establish the Mars colony.
