You may be the next Elon Musk

June 16, 2018

Many of you know the famous South African entrepreneur Elon Musk, who started from nothing and ended up with a current net worth of 21.3 Billion dollars. But did you know that his first ever real jobs were tending vegetables, cutting logs and cleaning boiler rooms?

“You have to put on this hazmat suit and then shimmy through this little tunnel that you can barely fit in.”

“Then, you have a shovel and you take the sand and goop and other residue, which is still steaming hot, and you have to shovel it through the same hole you came through. There is no escape. Someone else on the other side has to shovel it into a wheelbarrow. If you stay in there for more than thirty minutes, you get too hot and die.” Thirty people started out at the beginning of the week. By the third day, five people were left. At the end of the week, it was just Musk and two other men doing the work”

We know that most of you are at the start of your career. Reaching your goal is not always easy. The ones that are the most persevering, reach the farthest.

We hope you are inspired to go into the world and be the best that you can be.

Good luck!
