ELON MUSK by Ashlee Vance
If you who want to make a lot of money, “just focusing on the dollar amount will never get you to your goals,” advises Skyes. “You need to dream about being successful enough to make the type of money you want,” he adds. “If it is all about the money and all about the dollars and cents, you aren’t being authentic in your pursuits.” Elon Musk is about dreaming big and working to make the world better instead of just focusing on the money.
