The stories that have risen around him have grown to almost epic proportions, especially over the past few years as his triumphs and big ideas have continued to fill the popular press. The names of his projects and dreams of the future themselves sound like the names of video game characters or science fiction technology. The Hyperloop. . . Oh, and a little thing called PayPal, too. The South African genius behind these ideas is a model of creative and combative entrepreneurship, refusing to accept no for an answer in any aspect of his work and daring to dream in ways that make the world around him marvel at his potential.
Elon Musk has a penchant for not only developing and introducing grand ideas, but also matching those ideas with an energetic and ambitious personality that does not allow for doubters, either outside or inside his gadget-crazy world. Musk has gone from relative obscurity to international fame and recognition in just under a decade, parlaying a starring role in the development of ubiquitous web payment system PayPal into a series of successful (to certain degrees) ventures.

His commercial space-flight venture, SpaceX, is developing a variety of commercial space craft that seem ensured to bring recreational space travel to the mainstream sometime in his own life span. And finally, as if Musk didn’t have enough irons in the fire, the South African recently unveiled his idea for the “Hyperloop”, a next-generation idea for public transit that involves human-sized tubes utilizing the same air propulsion system seen in bank deposit machines. The future is certainly an exciting place in Musk’s world, but it’s worth taking a look at some of the experiences and decisions that helped lead him to the forefront of technological in the 21st century.
