From then, their love story began.

After graduation, both of them walked off to different destinations to pursue their dream. Elon moved to Silicon Valley to build his first dot-com company, Zip2

His relationship with his father

Damian shares a fantastic bond with his father. His father, Elon, even affirms his children are his true love. 

All of his non-working hours are spent with his kids. He often takes his kids to visit his factories, and he took them with him whenever he goes out of town.

Elon is very passionate and concerned about his children’s education. 

So much that he even launched a private school for his family in 2015 called Ad Astra, which is a Latin word, and its meaning is 

“to the stars.” 

Damian’s dad Elon shared why he fires people daily

We are sure everyone must know Damian’s father, Elon, has a great personality. He owns big businesses and lives a luxurious life. 

Well, in one of the interviews, Elon elaborated on the reason why he fires people daily. 

He stated that the failure to try to innovate always results in a big penalty. 

Hence they will be fired for sure, Elon added. He also said that if someone doesn’t even try or give their best to innovate or their innovation aspirations are not very good, they will no longer be appointed to work at the company. 

Elon said that when they take an interview, they ask for some proof of exceptional ability, which mostly includes innovation. 

Further added, making a mistake along the way doesn’t include a huge penalty, but failure to try to innovate at all comes with a big penalty for sure. 

What other things did he share on the platform? To know more, visit the link below.

Elon calls Thailand Driver a “child rapist”?

Many of you might remember the controversies raised when Elon clashed out a baseless attack against a British diver, pointing him as a child rapist without any strong proof. 

The man saved the kids from a cave in Thailand. Not only this, he commented diver Vernon a pedo, in a tweet who was engaged as a part of an international team that let free almost 12 young footballers along with their coach from the Tham Luang cave complex

However, Elon later apologized to Unsworth for the action. Moreover, BuzzFeed had published new emails from Elon where the man referred to the journalist as a f*cking asshole for writing about the dispute. 

Nevertheless, Elon launched an extraordinary claim against Unsworth without the presence of any documentation that would support the allegations. 

His dad can do email while he is with him and his siblings

During an interview, Elon revealed not seeing his kids enough. According to him, he can be with his kids and still be on email because they don’t need constant interaction except when they are talking directly so that he can be with them and at the same time he can work. 

He also confessed to doing email while he is with his children, and that is the reason he tends to have a phone so that he can email in interstitial moments. 

In the absence of his phone, he would not be able to get his job done. He also added having a nanny along with them so that they would not kill each other.

His dad never wrote CEO while filling out the occupation form. He always wrote Engineer and wore jeans and a t-shirt to work

His mom Justine Musk while describing her relationship with her then-husband Elon Musk on TEDx Talks, recalled her years with him, where she said she became familiar with a distinct and deeply tribal mentality known as engineers. 

Once when she took her dad to visit Elon at his first company at Zip2, seeing the lanty dudes in jeans and t-shirts racing the remote-controlled contraptions around the parking lot and banging them into cars, her dad asked her if they were the kids of the engineers to which she said they were the engineers. 

She added to say that whenever she and Elon would travel and they had to fill out the forms of customs that required their occupation, Elon never wrote: “CEO” or “King of the World” or studly international playboy. 

He wrote “Engineer” and always wore jeans and a t-shirt to work. 

Whenever they went shopping for clothes, he consulted with the stylist that he couldn’t look cool because he had to look like an engineer. 

According to her, one of the things he told her back then was that engineers could not quite figure out why it was that the suits made the big money when it was the engineers who built the stuff that they were selling, and that was the time when she realized that Elon was somebody who has learned to speak both languages and could move between the tribes because he was the engineer in the suit.

Elon explains the work ethic

Elon shared regarding work ethic. He clearly says that no one ever should give many hours into work, which he claims is not good. 

He explains that human beings should not work this hard as he claimed these are very painful. When asked what sort of pain he feels? 

To which he replies by saying that it hurts his brain and his heart. Continued with the context, when asked what does ‘super-hard’ really mean to Elon

Elon recalls that when he and his brother began their first company, they didn’t have an apartment but just rented a small office, and then they just slept on the couch and showered at the YMCA. 

He shared how they were so hard up that they just had one computer with them. Due to it, the website was up during the daytime, and Elon was coding at night. 

He worked seven days a week, all the time. 

He also shared how at that time, he briefly had a partner, and in order to spend time with him, the lady had to sleep in the office. 

Elon confronted working very hard every waking hour. 

So, the particular thing he would like to say is that if anybody is starting their company, and if you perform simple math, where other is working 50 hours, and you are working 100, you will definitely get twice done in the course of a year as other company. 

Elon tells us just work like hell and to put in 80-100 hour weeks every week. He claimed that all those things would for sure improve the odds of success. 

He tells of other people around who are giving their 40-hour work weeks, and you are there putting in a total of 100-hour work then, even if you are performing the same thing, then after a year, you will definitely get what they got. 

He explained you would get it in four months span of time, and it will take others a whole year to achieve.
