Elon Musk: What’s next for the world’s richest man?
JIMMIE: IF HE HASN’T ACCOMPLISHED ENOUGH ALREADY, ELON MUSK IS SETTING HIS SIGHTS EVEN HIGHER IN 20-22.
NATS: SpaceX Rocket launch
JIMMIE: MAKING ELON MUSK JUST ONE NAME YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY.
NATS: Funny clip of Musk dancing.
JIMMIE: MUSK HAS ALWAYS DANCED TO HIS OWN TUNE.
WE KNOW HIM AS THE FOUNDER OF TESLA AND SPACEX, BUT BEFORE HE AMASSED A NEED FOR SPEED AND SPACE, HE CO-FOUNDED PAYPAL. WHICH HE LATER SOLD AND INVESTED ALL OF HIS COINS TO START UP TESLA.
ELON MUSK:” I don’t want to give the impression that Tesla would be successful from the beginning. I actually thought we would fail.”
JIMMIE: MUSK IS UNDENIABLY A BRILLIANT VISIONARY LEADER BUT JOKINGLY ACKNOWLEDGES HE HASN’T FIGURED OUT SELF-CONTROL JUST YET.
ELON MUSK: “Look. I know I say and sometimes post strange things, but that’s just how my brain works. To anyone I offended. I just want to say, “I reinvented electric cars, and I’m sending people to mars on a rocketship. Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?”
JIMMIE: HIS OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKING AND DORKY PERSONALITY KEEP HIM IN HOT WATER ON SOCIAL AND WITH FEDERAL REGULATORS.
LIKE THIS 20-18 TWEET WHERE MUSK JOKED ABOUT TAKING TESLA PUBLIC AT 420.
THE SEC DIDN’T FIND THAT FUNNY AND FINED HIM 20-MILLION DOLLARS.
MUSK LATER SAID THE TWEET WAS ‘WORTH IT.’
FOX BUSINESS CONTRIBUTOR: It’s great that he can make a joke afterwards, but most executives wouldn’t be allowed to make jokes about the SEC coming through their office and paying fines.”
JIMMIE: HIS CRYPTIC TWEETS DON’T JUST IMPACT COMPANIES HE HAS A STAKE IN. THEY CAUSE THE CRYPTO MARKET TO CRASH… AND IN SOME CASES, IT CAN SEND DOGECOIN SOARING “TO THE MOON.”
CNBC ANCHOR: “Overnight, he’s been tweeting, and it’s been driving up Dogecoin pretty significantly.”
JIMMIE: MUSK’S COMMENTS CAN BE PROBLEMATIC AT TIMES. HOWEVER, IT DOESN’T STOP HIM FROM WEIGHING IN ON POLITICS.
WHEN PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN TOUTED THE SUCCESS OF FORD AND G-M BUILDING ELECTRIC CARS IN AMERICA, MUSK REPLIED “STARTS WITH T ENDS WITH A ESL IN THE MIDDLE”
THAT SPELLS TESLA, WHICH RECORDED EARNINGS IN 2021.
BUT BECAUSE OF THE GLOBAL CHIP SHORTAGE, MUSK SAYS THE COMPANY WON’T ROLL OUT ANY NEW MODELS IN 2022.
THAT’S ONE REASON TESLA STOCK TOOK A HIT IN JANUARY, PERSONALLY COSTING MUSK 30-BILLION DOLLARS.
DESPITE THAT, MUSK REMAINS THE RICHEST PERSON IN THE WORLD WITH A NET WORTH OF OVER 200 BILLION.
SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN TWEETED WE SHOULD CHANGE THE TAX CODE SO MUSK “WILL PAY TAXES.”
MUSK FIRED BACK, CALLING WARREN A “KAREN”
OKAY. SO, MUSKS’ TWEETS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD BUT SO ARE HIS AMBITIONS FOR SPACE EXPLORATION.
IN 2022, SPACEX IS REPORTEDLY PLANNING TO LAUNCH A RECORD FIFTY-TWO ROCKETS INTO SPACE. \
MUSK ALSO HAS PLANS TO COLONIZE THE PLANET MARS.
ELON MUSK – THE NEXT-GEN LEADER — JUST ONE NAME YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY.
