More Words of Wisdom from Elon Musk

by Scott Edward Walker on September 30th, 2017

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we again present Elon Musk, a brilliant entrepreneur and the founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla; and Chairman of SolarCity.

In this brief clip from a few years back, Elon shares three pieces of advice for entrepreneurs:

  • focus on something that will have high value to someone else;
  • be extremely tenacious; and
  • “work like hell”.

My favorite quote: “If other people are putting-in 40-hour workweeks and you’re putting-in 100-hour workweeks…, you will achieve in four months what it takes them one year to achieve.”

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
