The Story of Elton Musk

from the young,-rich,-and-going-for-number-2 dept

Yet another story of a young, rich entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. This time it's about the founder of Zip2, who has a new company. As with any of these stories, it goes through the different quirks of the guy, and is not an entirely positive article. The one thread I've noticed among almost all young entrepreneurs who have been wildly successful is their inability to admit that any bit of luck played a part in their success. I understand that hard work and good ideas and a great team make things possible, but it always involves a bit of luck, and just once I'd like to see an entrepreneur admit that.
