QOTD – Things That Are Exciting And Inspiring

April 11, 2012

“The sale of Paypal gave me the capital to start a rocket company and a car company – cuz they are high capital endeavors. Actually, we almost ran out of money – it was a close call for both SpaceX and Tesla.

Initially, I had to provide all of the funding for SpaceX and Tesla myself because rockets are pretty far out of the comfort zone of most venture capitalists.

And the other reason is one that actually gets me the most excited, which is that there have to be things that are exciting and inspiring – life cannot just be about solving problems. And I think this would be the most exciting adventure I could possibly imagine.”

Elon Musk, on the Daily Show (source one, two)

Very inspiring guy, love how he’s cool as a cucumber through the  entire interview and in life in general.

If you want to be inspired, watch this episode that Bloomberg did about him – his story is absolutely amazing.
