The Early Years

Hi I'm Elon Musk, I currently run Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, the Boring Company, and I'm co-chairman of OpenAI. I was trying to think what the most useful thing is that I can say to be useful to you in the future. I'm surprised by the whole thing honestly. I certainly didn't expect any of these things to happen. And I often find myself wondering, how did this happen? I guess I'll just tell you the story of how I came to be here, the various things that I did and maybe why I did them. Maybe there are lessons there. Hopefully, that's a bit helpful.
